Episode 63: Why is My House or Micro-church Not Thriving?



In today’s episode, Cynthia dives into a diagnosis as to why many house or micro-churches get stuck and become inward rather than multiplying and starting other groups.

Key Points from this episode:

  • Leader-centric groups don’t tend to thrive and multiply.
  • Many come to a house church or micro-church because they a reacting to or dissatisfied with the mega-church.  They need to be re-focused not on themselves, but on the lost around them.
  • People love the participatory nature of the Discovery Bible Study.  They enjoy learning this way.  But DBS is not only for our own enjoyment, it is so we can both follow Jesus and fish for people.
  • We need to focus on the lost not only on making the saved better Christians.
  • Train everyone to lead the group.  Train everyone to make disciples and start new groups. 
  • Jesus’ mission was to “seek and save the lost” (Luke 19:10).  This must become our mission as well.
