My family & I have several years experience in cell church. After moving to a new town we have been without a cell church now for 3 years. We are dying for lack of genuine community.

I currently meet weekly with a group of Christian men. We began a year ago after a "Binding the Wounds" seminar. We now know each other quite intimately. I believe that all of us are dissattisfied with traditional church--some of us haven't attended for a long time. We want something better but aren't sure where to go. We still meet weekly and have been taking ourselves through "do-it-yourself" seminars like "Wild At Heart" and currently "Light Her Fire."

I would like to cast the vision of cell church among my brothers, but it's so hard for me to explain it. What would you suggest? Do you know about a seminar on CD, perhaps with a study guide, that would be vision-casting for my group?

My first and greatest suggested would be for you to get into your prayer closet and seek the Lord for the vision He may have for your fellowship of believers.

I think books, videos and teaching on Cell Groups have been great but when the seminars are over and you are standing before your memebers, I believe what the Lord has given you will keep that fire going!!!

(This is not to say you should not utilize every tool possible, but as I said, this would be my first suggestion for you.)

Where are you thinking about planting this church?

Blessings on you!!!

I would like to suggest two resources:

New Wineskins for Future Churches - A Cassette Taped series by Ralph Neighbour

Life In His Body - David Finnell, a simple guide to active cell life.

Both are great introductory tools and can be found on our website.

Thankyou, RedSalt, for your encouragement both online and by private email.

Randall, I think that "Life In His Body" would be the perfect choice if it were on CD. My group of guys just aren't readers. You know, maybe we could read it together in the group -- that's a possibility. I'll discuss it with them. I think I'll also order those tapes by your dad and check them out.

Thanks,

Atom
