Overview

Although the largest churches in the world are cell-based, many have questioned whether the model will work in North America. The Church in Many Houses: Reaching Your Community Through Cell-Based Ministry makes the case that the ell model will work --- if key assumptions about spiritual growth and the nature of the church are re-examined and renewed. By drawing on scripture, research and insights gained through personal experience as the pastor of a growing cell church, Steve Cordle identifies five pivotal philosophical shits necessary for the cell approach to work. These are:

• from programs to relationships

• from member to disciple-maker

• from educating to equipping

• from "come and see" to "go and show"

• from church with cells to church is cell
Imposing a cell structure upon a congregation that has not yet made these philosophical shifts will likely lead to failure. But when people adopt these biblical mindset changes, the cell approach seems natural and will result in great unity and effectiveness.
