Home > Congregation > Regional mission conferences to focus on house churches

The North American Lutheran Church will offer a series of seven regional conferences focusing on House Church Ministry in 2014.

The theme of these conferences, “The Missional Church – House Churches,” is based in Acts 2:42-47. This Scripture passage gives a brief snapshot of life in the early Church. Each of the large group sessions is based on key points from this passage: A Biblical Case for House Churches, A Practical Approach to House Churches, Missional Hospitality, and Growing a House Church.

“It is our hope that each congregation from the NALC will strive to consider this topic and prayerfully discern who God might be calling from their congregation to be involved in such a mission as this,” said Pastor Gemechis Buba, Assistant to the Bishop for Missions.

If you have any questions about house churches or the regional gatherings, please contact Jenny Brockman in the NALC Missions Office at 614-777-5709 or [email protected].
