This show explores the intersection of mega and micro church expressions. Jason Shepperd and Dave Edwards of Church Project in Houston, TX interview church multiplication practitioners on new and innovative ways to create hybrid church models. 


What Makes a House Church a Church?

What is the difference between a small group and a house church? And what is the difference between a small group leader and a house church pastor?

Some people simply adjust nomenclature, and accomplish no real change at all. Both consist of smaller groups of people, who have leaders.

But, the distinctions create significant differences. In this episode, we will discuss the distinctions of these identifications.

“I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one—I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.”
