Home Church Network

[updated – February 21, 2020]

As the Lord has recently opened a door for Pastor James to return to pulpit ministry, the Home Church Network will continue a pilot season through spring, then re-evaluate regarding future training events and plans for fall.

Given the significant level of interest in both leading and participating in HcN, the information below has been abbreviated to reflect this current stage of development. An update will follow in summer 2020.


If you’re building a core group or have longed for an opportunity to lead a ministry from your home with solid biblical teaching and worship designed to impact your neighbors and loved ones, Home Church Network (HcN) might be your next step.

Currently in a pilot season, Home Church Network’s emphasis is on practical Bible teaching, simple yet powerful worship, and community patterned after the book of Acts.

HcN is designed to deliver video and livestream Bible teaching from Dr. James MacDonald, along with worship from some of the most loved and widely appreciated worship leaders in the world – specially for home groups.

  • HcN seeks to embody all the lessons Pastor James and Kathy have learned from more than 35 years of local church ministry.
  • The teaching and worship that make up HcN meetings will only be available to participating groups.
    HcN plans to host quarterly regional events and an annual network-wide summer event.
  • If interested in participating but not leading your own HcN group, online services may be a future component for those awaiting the establishment of a group in their area.

HcN leader training is rigorous – not all applicants are approved. But if this challenge kindles your spirit to learn more about leading an HcN home church, submit your application below.
