Jim Elliff has been a encouragement in ministry for me in a number of ways. I have heard him preach and speak. I have heard his radical ideas on evangelism. I have read many of his materials. I have read many articles on his website. All of it has been helpful in one way or another, even when I haven't fully agreed.
One of his newest articles has intrigued me. I haven't fully thought it through yet, or even mulled over all the difficulties and questions in my mind. But his idea about starting house churches to extend sanctuary-style churches is worth reading. I think he may be onto something biblical and wonderful and radically simple.
