The COVID-19 limitations on the size of gatherings suddenly thrust the churches in Canada into the world of house church. This is a world that we know well from reading the New Testament and from our study of the Early Church, but one that most of us have not personally experienced. Join us for a conversation on how to make the most of the benefits that a house church offers and avoid the pitfalls that may come with it.
Derek Parenteau – is a First Nations ministry leader and church planter who has been functioning with and training others in the house church model for the past 6+ years.
Ingrid Reichard – came to Christ and was formatively discipled in a house church and serves the MB Church of Canada as the national Faith & Life director.
