Why Micro-Churches 

Micro-churches aren't a new idea; they have been present in the New Testament since the beginning. The desire to see the church multiply can be overwhelming, so to reach Nebraska with the Gospel, we need to try different church models. The main focus within the micro-church is not to start new micro-churches but to reproduce disciples that can help the church emerge in unique contexts.


A micro-church is a smaller, more intimate, and decentralized Christian worship and community form. While traditional churches are typically large, organized institutions with a central location, micro-churches focus on creating a more personal and close-knit community.


Our mission is to develop a network of churches and disciples across Nebraska dedicated to establishing worshiping, and fellowshiping, redemptive communities. We are confident in pioneering, establishing, leading, and nurturing different types of churches, all empowered by the life-changing Holy Spirit and under the unshakable Lordship of Christ and the unwavering authority of Scripture.

Benefits to the Micro-Church 

  • Intimacy and Connection: Micro-churches often have smaller congregations, allowing for deeper connections and a stronger sense of community among members. Participants may feel more comfortable sharing their thoughts, feelings, and struggles in a smaller, more intimate setting.

  • Flexibility: Micro-churches are often more flexible regarding meeting times, locations, and formats. This flexibility can appeal to individuals with busy schedules or those who prefer a less formal approach to worship.

  • Adaptability: Micro-churches can adapt to their members' specific needs and preferences. This adaptability allows for a more personalized worship experience and a greater focus on the unique spiritual journey of each participant.

  • Community Engagement: Micro-churches can be more nimble in responding to the local community's needs. Due to their smaller size and local focus, they may engage in community service projects, outreach, and support initiatives more effectively.

  • Discipleship: Smaller micro-churches can facilitate more personalized discipleship and mentorship relationships. Members can receive more individualized attention and guidance in their spiritual growth.

  • Ease of Replication: Micro-churches are often easier to start and replicate compared to larger, traditional churches. This can lead to the rapid establishment of multiple small communities, providing a decentralized network of worship and support.

  • Less Institutional Overhead: Micro-churches typically have fewer administrative and organizational burdens compared to larger churches. This allows them to focus more on building relationships and spiritual growth.
