Microchurch Design for Growth
A look at how to facilitate a missional community with multiplication in mind
About the course
Many times we get an idea from God about a place or people that we are called to reach but we may not know exactly what next steps to take. It can be challenging to know how to step out in faith while also designing a microchurch that can grow into the fullness of what church can be. Particularly, we can get stuck knowing how to design our microchurches for effectiveness and growth. What does it mean to be a church in this small, potent form? And, how can we set up our communities from the beginning to help them flourish and faithfully reach the corner of the city that God has called them to?
