Restoration Fellowship Network, or, R-Fellowship, desires to help you connect face to face with those in your local area: Below you will find a list of locations we feel prompted to aid in starting Simple Organic Christian Communities that are compatible with our Beliefs, Purpose, Values, and Mission. If you live in these areas, connect with us for more information. Use this list to pray for the establishment of new Communities in these cities!
If you have started, or are considering starting a simple gathering, please contact us for support, encouragement, mentoring, and to join our network! Our desire is to see an expanding network of simple communities around the country and world that are committed to God and his Messiah. Contact us for support, discussion and mentoring related to developing new fellowships.
This is a reasonable question. What are the benefits of this over simply remaining an independent community? It was noted in the search for a model of being a true fellowship, that single house churches either become ingrown and stagnant, or, they lose the qualities that make them unique and desirable by outgrowing the “house church” and becoming a traditional church. Maintaining the benefits of simple communities as our primary family, and adding a secondary relationship with an extended family captures the best of both worlds. The larger group Network is able to provide the same resources as a traditional church while still emphasizing the primacy of the small close knit community. Each associated community selects a ministry servant as a representative on the Family Council. Affiliation with the larger non-denominational fellowship of the Restoration Movement connects us with other churches throughout the world along with movement history, publications, teaching/training conferences, camps, ministries, missions, colleges/universities, etc.
Countries with 50% or more who speak English (one million or more total population)
Unless communities have contact with native speakers of the local language, it is recommended that international target cities be in locales that have a large percentage of English speaking population.
