Evangelism in House Churches

My friend AnnMarie posted this question in another thread:

Have you seen or heard of a house church that is effectively reaching the lost? I would love to hear about it!

I don't have any experience of my own to draw on in answering that question, although Julie Jacobs has told me that about 1 out of 10 people in her HC network has come to faith through the network. I'm going to e-mail the people I know who have HC experience and invite them to post here and share some of what they've seen about evangelism in the HCs.

  • How often do people come to faith through their involvement in the HC?

  • If you frequently have people who are not believers attending, how does that affect what you do and how you do it at your gatherings?

  • Is anyone leading groups where most of the people are not believers? If so, how is that going?
