Brandon, John. “Crazy Passion: Francis Chan keeps pushing and pushing to make more and more disciples.” Christianity Today. 10/16/2009 09:53AM.
A couple of days ago Christianity Today published an article about Francis Chan, author of Crazy Love and Forgotten God, both of which I have reviewed recently. It focuses on his personal story and his current endeavour to start a different kind of church that mixes the house church and large group gathering church together. He is moving from Simi Valley into the more populous regions of LA.
I’m glad to hear that he still believes in the larger church and it will be interesting to see how the two can be combined. I don’t know of any house church movements that have been overly successful in North America but I look forward to something that goes beyond the small group model. What he’s doing kind of sounds like the Korean model which would be good if it can create the passion for God which is his goal.
