RCCG HOUSE FELLOWSHIP UNIT AT A GLANCE

The House Fellowship Unit is an arm of the Redeemed Christian Church of God.  Carved out from the Directorate of Christian Education, to operate as an independent unit in 2012, the House Fellowship Unit is saddled with the responsibility to effect prompt implementation of the church growth programs of the Redeemed Christian Church of God on Church Planting and House Fellowship Development at the grassroots level. This is currently being accomplished through House Fellowship, Soul Winning, Church Planting and Discipleship.

As an important arm of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, and in line with the overall vision of the church, the main objectives of the House Fellowship Unit are: to ensure commitment of House Fellowship Leaders to Follow Up, New Believers’ Class Training and New Comers’ Preservation; to encourage relevance of House Fellowship to Church Growth through Mass reproduction of House Fellowship Leaders; to create awareness on the need for parishioners, in all parishes of RCCG, to attend House Fellowship meetings and release their homes for House Fellowship. Specifically, we target last Sundays of each Month as House Fellowship awareness day in all Parishes of RCCG; to help in Church Planting by identifying and translating House Fellowship Centers, with large population, to full fledge Parishes of RCCG; and, to Liaise with Parishes of RCCG to actualize the goals of the Mission on Evangelism by mobilizing House Fellowship members for Personal or Mass Evangelism, especially on the last Saturdays of each Month.

In order to fulfill the divine mandate the House Fellowship Unit has the following division in place:
i.          Administration / Secretariat
ii.         Finance and Marketing
iii.        Research and Training
iv.        Languages and Translation
v.         Data and Statistics
vi.        Inspection
vii.       Soul Winning and Discipleship
viii.      House Fellowship Leaders Coordinators

The House Fellowship Unit has materials and manuals published on House Fellowship, leadership, soul winning, church planting and discipleship. Plans are in the offing to have these materials in other languages (local and foreign). It is our vision to implement the church growth programs of the Redeemed Christian Church of God on Church Planting and House Fellowship Development at the grassroots level.

We thank God for how far He has helped us. By His grace we shall continue to be relevant to the spiritual and numerical growth of the body of Christ in this end time. Our prayer is that the Lord will count us worthy of His calling.

HOUSE FELLOWSHIP ANTHEM

SO CLOSELY KNITTED INTO ONE
THEY HAVE TAKEN ME INTO THEIR ARMS
AND ‘AM SO GLAD TO BE
A PART OF THIS GREAT FAMILY

ADVANTAGES OF THE HOUSE FELLOWSHIP SYSTEM

  1. House Fellowship is capable of meeting the needs of the members in a way the large congregation will not be able to do. Since the number of people in a House Fellowship Centre is relatively few, the immediate as well as intimate needs of the members can easily be met.
  2. House Fellowship creates a sense of membership among the people. Each member sees him/herself as belonging to the House Fellowship Centre as a unit and the church as a whole. This sense of belonging enhances growth.
  3. It breeds unity in the church. It does this by creating unity among the House Fellowship members.
  4. Neighbourhood evangelism is made easier through the House Fellowship system especially the people group and proximity approaches.
  5. The House Fellowship does not cost as much to run as a full fledge church building, yet it consistently proves to be more efficient.
  6. A well organized House fellowship system eliminates clique formation and informal groups. This elimination is possible because the number of members in the House Fellowship is kept to the barest minimum.
  7. Evangelism of church programs can easily be done through interaction with House Fellowship Members.
