Why Awakening Houses?
While we believe in traditional churches—and operate one—we also believe there is a deep hunger and desperate need for house churches to rise up in this hour. We long to see the miracles, signs and wonders we read about in the Book of Acts. But many church models don’t make room for Spirit-led worship, intimate discipleship or body ministry—which gives all members a chance to exercise their gift as the Holy Ghost wills. Awakening Houses aims to spur believers around the world to return to the roots of the church.
Do I have to preach a message to lead a house church?
You can but you don’t have to. You can simply listen to the weekly Awakening House of Prayer message, joining the worship and having ministry time and fellowship in your house church.
What do you require of house church leaders?
Awakening Houses should meet at least monthly at launch, with the goal of meeting weekly. You do not necessarily need to meet on a Sunday. You could meet on a Saturday night and you can meet more than once in a week.
We are looking or house church leaders who offer a welcoming place for everyone, including the un-churched, or those who have left the institutionalized church with hurts and wounds or otherwise bad experiences.
Awakening House Church services should extend fellowship at their conclusion, either through a meal or snacks and coffee.
Does the movement help me connect with people in my city?
Awakening Houses offers you a personal e-mail address, a city-branded Facebook group, and an interactive map that lets people in your city find and contact you directly.
Does the movement encourage body ministry?
We encourage you to have a time for people to share what they hear the Lord saying or to discuss/ask questions about the message. That timing should be set by the leader. People may be allowed to move in the gifts of the Spirit, for example, during worship or after the message.
Does the movement have a mobile app and other communication avenues?
Yes, Awakening House of Prayer has an app. We also have a private Facebook group for leadership and our site is translated into every major language.
The Story Behind The Awakening House Church Movement
We long to see the miracles, signs and wonders we read about in the Book of Acts. But many church models don’t make room for Spirit-led worship, intimate discipleship or body ministry—which gives all members a chance to exercise their gift as the Holy Ghost wills. While we believe in traditional churches—and operate one—we also believe there is a deep hunger and desperate need for house churches to rise up in this hour. The Lord has put it on Jennifer’s heart to facilitate a house church movement where all things are done decently and in order (1 Corinthians 14:40).
The Movement – Awakening House Mission
Awakening House Churches are welcoming places for the un-churched, or those who have left the institutionalized Church with hurts and wounds or otherwise bad experiences. They are “Safe Houses” where people of all ages and races come together to minister to the Lord and each other.
The Movement – Awakening House’s Vision
Awakening Houses equip people to live a victorious life in Christ and impact the world around them for His glory. Awakening Houses offer the foundational elements of any church, including prayer, praise and worship, a focus on teaching the Word, personal ministry time, and fellowship, Communion, and giving.
