Home Church Ministry Training
Special Activities in the Home Church

There is a need for Evangelism in the Home Church.
There are several reasons why evangelism is needed:
  1. It is a part of the great commission to evangelize the world.

  2. It is pleasing to the Lord.

  3. It is the way of growing the Home Church and God’s kingdom.

  4. It is a way to save people from going to hell and have eternal life.
Evangelism projects
Evangelism Training.
Members may attend Evangelism Training held from time to time, by the Home Church Leader or Church Leadership.

Making Home Church Evangelism enjoyable.
It is most important that members enjoy all evangelism activities.
In this way, it will continue to be a positive, growing, and a progressive experience in their lives.

Bible reading and the HomeChurch:
This can be done by asking one of the members to read a certain portion of scripture relating to the topic of the meeting.
It can also be done by having each member select and read a scripture from a scripture box.

Prayer and the Home Church.
The Prayer Leader, leading prayer.
During a meeting, the prayer leader may ask members to write down their prayer requests. At the prayer time the requests can be prayed over.

Praying for special needs.
From time to time it will be necessary for members to unite together in a type of prayer meeting for special needs.

Members learning to pray.
A leader should carefully help and lead members into praying. This is done by allowing them to listen to others praying. Then slowly teaching them how to pray. This can also be done by having them to repeat the prayer words after you. They should experience prayer as a part of their everyday life. Families should start their day in prayer and pray over their meals together. Members should develop a personal prayer time every day;
Prayer walking.
Prayer walking is one of the most exciting events members can experience. It is done by Christians all over the world. The Home Church group can walk and pray over a subdivision or place. It has also been reported how a group of Christians have prayed over a sinful place that is in the area, causing it to leave or close down.

Fasting and the Home Church.
Fasting for special needs or in times of Persecution.
From time to time there are very special needs within the Church that require collective fasting and prayer. An example of this:

Acts 12:5-16
Peter was therefore kept in prison, but constant[a] prayer was offered to God for him by the church. Then the angel said to him, “Gird yourself and tie on your sandals”; and so he did. And he said to him, “Put on your garment and follow me.” So he went out and followed him. And when Peter had come to himself, he said, “Now I know for certain that the Lord has sent His angel, and has delivered me from the hand of Herod and from all the expectation of the Jewish people.”

He came to the house of Mary, the mother of John whose surname was Mark, where many were gathered together praying.
Now Peter continued knocking; and when they opened the door and saw him, they were astonished. 17 But motioning to them with his hand to keep silent, he declared to them how the Lord had brought him out of the prison.

This is a powerful way of ensuring answers to prayer. When needed it should be carefully explained to members.

Members personal fasting projects.
A leader should carefully teach, help and lead members into fasting.
It is important that they learn how to prepare for a fast and how to end it.
This is done over time, by allowing them to listen to others share about their fasting experiences. Fasting should become a regular part of their personal life.
