Natural Authority

Fish symbol of early churchHouse faith leadership will normally be a different person to the host so that there will be no conflict of duties. The host's main concern is the environment for the house but the leader's is the running of the house itself. The leader is to be a respected and trustworthy person with natural authority and the ability to lead. The host will be a person who is willing to open their home to the household of faith for a gathering every week. Light refreshments may be provided before or after a meeting but not on an elaborate scale. An occasional shared meal to which all could contribute a dish may be part of the gathering. A distinctive marker may be placed on a street sign, a door, in a window, or on a post box to indicate the location of the House of Faith. The sign could be made available to Houses when they register.
