I am deeply persuaded by MIke Breen's analysis of the cultural and anthropological case for expressions of local church that look and feel like traditional extended families.
Note, it is extended families, not nuclear ones (though the latter are also important).
Groups that are 20-30 in size have a particular role in discipleship, and in Breen's experience, are also much easier to engage naturally in mission.
Skip the ads and get the keys bits. The first 20 minutes are Ed Stetzer. Mike Breen is on after that.
What do you think?
