If you are searching for a practical way for the local church to build on the priorities and practices of Jesus Christ, then this book is a must-read.
Steve Cordle writes: "I can't say I caught the vision of the cell church; rather, the cell church vision caught me. I couldn't shake it." This dynamic book, The Church In Many Houses: Reaching Your Community Through Cell Based Ministry, brilliantly illustrates how the cell church vision caught Crossroads UMC.
Having visited Crossroads UMC, Steve Cordle leads one of the most exciting cell churches in the U.S. Steve has many gifts: a knack for keeping things simple, a humble heart that permeates his story, and enthusiasm that keeps you reading. Enjoy the journey!

A long time ago, a small band of disciples proved that authentic, evangelistic, Spirit-led community can change the world. It's happening again. Steve Cordle writes winsomely of what is beyond worship attendance and outward compliance. His eye witness account of inner transformation through the cell church ministry of Crossroads United Methodist Church will inspire all who tire of program-loaded church life. But be careful as you read this book, it could change the entire way you see and do church.

A lot of people talk about cell groups but not many do them, especially in mainline churches. This book is written by a mainline pastor whose church lives and breathes cell ministry. Bill Easum

Steve Cordle has captured the heart behind the success of the New Testament Church ... The life of the body is in the cell.
