How To Find a House Church

Three pastors leading house churches offer tips on identifying solidly biblical churches and what might be the best way to begin a house church yourself if there are no quality house churches near you.  (Incidentally, the recording of the episodes accidentally fell out of synchronization with the calendar.  As a result, there is a mention of Halloween in this episode because it was, at the time, thought that this show would air on October 31st.  Please pardon the error, knowing that despite this mistake, all five shows in this topic “arc” have been presented to you in the same sequence they were recorded.)  This is Part Five of a five-part series on the topic of house churches.  All five were recorded while live streaming and that full video is available on the Household of Faith in Christ YouTube channel:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jl9aAqOploA.

The Back Story

Troy Skinner bounced around a lot as a kid, then bounced around a lot from church to church, and over the years has bounced around quite a bit in theological perspectives.  But things really settled down twenty years ago, and Troy has settled in to raising a family, building a career, and serving as an undershepherd for Christ’s flock.

Troy has been hosting the Faith Debate since 2004, but a full outline of his testimony has never been shared on the show… until now.  This episode provides additional depth of insight into what makes this particular pastor tick.

Podcast

Sundays 9AM to 9:30AM

The Frederick Faith Debate is designed to be an open an honest forum for local faith community leaders to share and discuss their views of the truth.  Lady Bird Johnson once said, “the clash of ideas is the sound of freedom”.  In that spirit, the show seriously wrestles with important ideas… the participant often disagreeing with one another.  The hope is that through this wrestling a better understanding of the truth will develop with regards to the most important issues facing the world.

In other words, The Frederick Faith Debate is home to conflict resolution on the issues that matter most.  We can’t truly resolve anything without understanding.  And we can’t gain authentic understanding without honesty.  So, that’s what you get here.  A safe haven for honesty.  We share what we hold to be true and why.  Where there’s disagreement, we hash it out.  Because we know why we’re here, there’s no worry over hurt feelings.  At the end, if we fail to persuade each other within the confines of our program’s allotted time, we will at least know not only where we stand, but the reasons that we camp out where we do.
