House Churches

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.
