Oikos Resources

Oikos is the greek word for family or household. Multiple times in the new testament, Jesus worked a miracle of healing or salvation for someone, and directed them to their “oikos”.  Jesus used the principle of “going to your oikos” to multiply the church and to create the movement that the Jews referred to as “The Way”, which began with 12 disciples, which after 50 days had grown to 3500. 
To support your growth in understanding the concept of oikos and how it is reflected in the ministry of ALWC, please check out this online class. 




Intangibles of Leadership

The video below is from Bill Hybels from WIllow Creek Community Church.  The WIllow Creek Association provides resources for pastors and leaders.  The video outlines five intangible characteristics of leaders that set them apart from others.  For a copy of the Video Outline, click here.
