Micro Churches

LifeLine is fundamentally about church. It's about being church in a different way than people in North America are used to seeing it, and different than the way the vast majority of churched folks are used to experiencing it.

We believe that it's important for the medium to match the message we talk about. That is, all the talk we hear in churches today about community, authenticity, accountability, cooperation, lay ministry, the priesthood of all believers, etc. deserve more than just the lip service to which they are so often limited. We believe that it is possible for church to be practiced in such a way as to actually make it possible for a group of people to experience the kind of transformative, vital faith about which so many talk but few ever see. (If you'd like to learn more about how faith is developed and nurtured, and how spiritual formation works in a micro church environment, you can read the monstrous tome written by Becky and me called, "Creating a Holistic Formational Ethos" - yes, I am serious - in the Vault section of the website)

We believe that micro (small, simple, house, etc. depending on whose parlance you might read) churches offer the best possibility for this to take place. This is not to say that other forms of church are wrong or inferior; it is to say that we believe the people and time to which we are called lead in this direction. So...our primary form of building spiritual community is micro churches in neighborhoods, coffee shops, arts centers, etc. In these kinds of environments we believe skeptics and people disconnected from more "normal" institutional churches find reason to hope again; we all find something to believe in as we see Kingdom and Gospel lived out in real life up close. (If you are interested in reading more about the kind of Christian apologetic this represents for our time, check out the article "It's About the Questions" in the Vault section of our site.)
