Relationship Evangelism Growth
Extended Household Model
A network of households of faith in an area will produce relational evangelism growth. As one of our evangelism resources, relationship evangelism is intended to stimulate church life. "The Household of Faith" is a "how to" evangelism resource for a church to extend its growth beyond its building. It contains two hundred and seventeen pages in six parts. The household of faith program is a relatively new approach to evangelism growth although sometimes found under other names. It is adapted from the extended household model used by Christians in the early centuries until 313 AD when Christianity was officially recognized and organized as an institution in the Roman Empire. This approach was recovered and used successfully by John Wesley, the Methodists and then other denominations with cottage meetings during the Methodist Revival. Relationship evangelism or the essence of Christianity according to Dr D. T. Niles (1908-1970) is "one beggar telling another beggar where he found bread" and can be successful today even using modern media.✞
