The basic building block is the individual disciple. The purpose of the larger Community and Family of Communities is to aid each individual disciple live out their Purpose through our Values to achieve our common Mission.
The Simple Organic Christian Community, usually around 4-15 adults serves as the nuclear family and practices accountability and care for each other as they share life together. Spiritual growth and discipleship is fostered through prayer, Scripture memory, focused exploration and application while reading through Scripture, and shared facilitation of the Disciples Bible Study. There are generally two types of groups: 1) an affinity based group which forms around a common mission or ministry, and 2) a geographically based group within a particular neighborhood or city/region. Each disciple is empowered and equipped to eventually launch their own “nuclear family” group while remaining connected in their “family of origin.” Each group is also urged to facilitate new Communities, both domestic and foreign.
Family Reunions among the Communities occur every 1-3 months to maintain unity and connection between the microchurch and the macrochurch. The focus is primarily on gaining cross-group interaction, large group worship experiences, and extended teaching/training opportunities. Cooperation and other interaction between groups occurs as often as needed.
