HCR065: Why Have Home Groups?

small groups
In this episode, I talk about the reason Antioch Community Church started meeting in home groups on Wednesday nights more than 20 years ago, and why we keep loving it just as much as always!

I share about:

  • The first summer experiment with home groups that got us hooked.
  • The purpose of home groups: to “go hard after each other.”
  • The reason we meet together for two years (and not more or less) in the same groups.
  • The way we decide who is going to meet in which group.
  • The leadership of the home groups.
  • I also answer a question from C.A. in Florida about how a church can encourage the older parents (“retired from parenting”) to give themselves in support and encouragement to the younger parents.
