Simple, Organic Church Networks

Please visit me at my other blog, tangiblethoughts, at There you can read about missions, church planting, Church Planting Movements, and T4T.

I have recently finished the reading of Missionary Methods: St. Paul’s Or Ours? by Roland Allen. The book was written in 1912 and contains insights from the ministry of the Apostle Paul that are relevent for missions and cross-cultural ministry today.

I have written a post on this book on my other blog site, tangiblethoughts. I would invite you to visit it here and leave your thoughts

I would like to thank all of you who continue to dial up taethnenetwork for a visit.

You have probably noticed that I have not written and posted any articles lately. That’s because I have gone back to writing most of my thoughts on my original blog, tangiblethoughts.

Tangiblethoughts contains articles that pertain primarily to missional, church planting, organic/simple church, campus and international student ministry, and Reformed Theology issues. You’ll occasionally find an article about a current event or some random thought. (The other day I posted my 200th article in less than two years. Not many compared to many other blogs, but it was exciting for me.)

I’d like to invite you to continue searching taethnenetwork for articles of interest to you. I pray that the articles you find here have been, and will continue to be, interesting, encouraging, and profitable to you.

I would also like to invite you to bookmark my tangiblethoughts  blog and check in there regularly for my latest posts. My prayer is that they will prove to be both interesting and encouraging for you.

Nearly 200 people from more than 37 nations met in Delhi, India in November to discuss, report on, and pray about what the Lord is doing around the world to reach a lost humanity for Himself through house churches, house church networks, and house church movements.

The Summit’s Steering Group has produced a 14-page summary report of the meeting that I think you will enjoy reading if you are interested in organic, simple churches and house church movements.

The report includes: 

  1. Notes on keynote sessions that addressed topics such as Global Trends, Reaching the Unreached, and Involving the Whole Family in ministry
  2. Country reports
  3. Highlights of the Summit
  4. Benefits of the gathering

The paper also includes a contact email if you would like to receive “full collected papers and reports” of the Summit. I have requested the material and am looking forward to receiving, reading and praying through them.

You can read the Steering Group’s Report here.
