    About the Authors


    Here is an almost forgotten vision and model of church that was actually the very first and original form of the Church to have entered the West. Floyd and Larry, both healthy apostolic father figures in our time, express here what millions are hearing the Spirit say to the churches. Give a few dozens of copies away to your friends and help spread an immense spark of hope!

    Wolfgang Simson, Author

    When it comes to the Church today, one size doesnt fit all. Most of us find our church home in a building with a pastor and a congregation. But a rapidly growing number of American believers are moving away from our traditional churches. This excellent book explains why and what can be done about it. I strongly recommend Starting a House Church for anyone who wants to keep up with the times!
