More About Kreider Larry

Larry Kreider Larry Kreider currently serves as International Director of DOVE Christian Fellowship International (DCFI), a worldwide network of churches.

At age 18, Larry began working with a group of unchurched young people in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. As the teens made commitments to Christ, they found it difficult to fit into area churches. To help meet this need, Larry and a team of young leaders planted a new church called DOVE Christian Fellowship in 1980. Within ten years, the church grew from 25 to over 2,000 members. In 1996, DOVE decentralized from one church into several different congregations to become an apostolic movement known as DOVE Christian Fellowship International (DCFI). Today DCFI is a growing family of churches and ministries scattered across eighteen states and more than twenty nations in six continents of the world.

During the past two decades, Larry has trained Christian leaders nationally and internationally to make disciples with the small group concept. He teaches and writes from experience and passion to reach those who have not yet heard and encourage the body of Christ.

He has written more than twenty-five books. Over 300,000 of his books have been sold and translated into over ten languages. He and his wife LaVerne, have been married 37 years, have four children, three grandchildren and live in Lititz, PA.

Larry Kreider currently resides in Lititz, in the state of Pennsylvania.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Forgetting the most important part  Apr 5, 2010
The thing this book and other "house church" planting books leaves out is the most important: the authority to do so.

In the early Church, the Apostles transmitted authority by laying on of hands. The leaders of the local churches--episkopoi (bishops)--were the only ones authorized to operate churches. This transmission of authority became known as Apostolic Succession, and these lines of bishops continue to today, carrying the same authority as the Apostles.

However, this book does not require that these "churches" have such Apostolic authority. These are self-appointed bishops, which is unheard of in the first century, both in the Bible and in contemporary sources such as the Didache (ca 50 AD), Clement of Rome (ca 60 AD) and Ignatius of Antioch (ca 100 AD).

The house "church" movement is reconstructionism through a Protestant lens (not unlike Mormonism), not "getting back to Christian roots". The Apostle Paul would not recognize a modern house church except perhaps in the most insignificant, external factors. If you want to learn about first century Christian worship, pick up "The Apostolic Fathers". It is a primary source that is more than a little different from what is described here.
Very Helpful!  Jul 23, 2009
Larry Kreider and Floyd McClung worked together to present very helpful information about starting house churches and house church networks. I greatly appreciated the book and found it very useful.
Interesting  Mar 31, 2009
This book is written from the point of view of an evangelical, but it does offer some good points and interesting ideas.
Free from negativity, but not as practical is its title suggests  Dec 7, 2008
Perhaps the first contemporary volume on house churches (other than its direct precursor, Kreider's "House Church Networks") that doesn't problematize traditional, institutional church life in its presentation of why and how to start a house church. It thus ends up making house churches sound normal and mainstream, not dissident and edgy. A good read, therefore, for folks who have left the institutional church and want to do something different yet not renegade or based on disparagement. Regrettably, the book is not as hands-on as its title suggests; for the amount of useful material within, it could have been much shorter -- pamphlet-length, even.
Quite Good  Sep 14, 2008
The concept of starting a network of house churches is fascinating to consider. I am grateful for the role that this book played in informing me about the concept. However, there is more content which the authors could have provided on the topic. I felt as if I was left wanting more.
