The Joy and Sorrow of Being Church

An interview with Michael Munk, one of the pastors at the Church of the Servant King, Portland, OR.¬† COSK¬† is a co-housing congregation — a church village, so to speak. You will be challenged and inspired by the commitment and shared experience of this community of believers. The brethren of The Church of the Servant King have been long-time friends of The Summit Fellowships.

Church 101 Course

I have been meaning to let y’all know that a few of us among the Summit Fellowships have been exploring a course called Church 101 that is prepared and presented by a friend of mine in Denver. I have known John White for many years and recently did an interview with him for the the Church of the Heart Podcast.

As a network of fellowships, I have been wondering if we are being intentional enough about equipping people to do church more simply. What if more people come to us asking for advice and encouragement in creating simple churches?

So, a group of six of us from three different Summits have been taking the course–sort of a beta test–to see if it might be helpful to recommend to people who are interested in house churches. It involves a lot of video learning, personal interaction and even online video conferences. So far the response among our intrepid little team has been positive. I’ll try to keep you posted about our progress. Eventually, I may even interview some of the beta team to share our experiences.

Stay tuned!
