    Decision-Making by Consensus

    Decision-Making by Consensus

    I sometimes hear conventional church people say that consensus governance is impossible. I know by experience that it is not only possible, but wonderfully beneficial. Our house church makes decisions by consensus, and it has been a blessing for us. In this podcast I discuss why it works in the organic setting and some of the benefits we've experienced.

    House Church: Fantasy, Ideal, and Reality.

    I went into starting a house church with a fantasy about what it should look like. Reality was a different story. Turns out the ideal is somewhere in between. Recognizing both fantasy and reality is helping me strive towards the ideal.

Great Source of Information

I recently found this podcast and it's been quite helpful since I feel I'm being called out of the "traditional" or "institutional" church. I agree that Chad is to-the-point, has incredibly valuable insights into this movement, and he accomplishes this without ever condemning those who have differing viewpoints. This is one of the best podcasts on the house church I've found.

I enjoy listening to Chad muse on house church. As a fellow house church planter it is reassuring to hear others' experiences.
