More About Larry Kreider, Ron Myer & Steve Prokopchak
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.

The Church is NOT a Business; Not Impressed Jul 14, 2008
I purchased this book after reading "Starting a House Church". I am one who is very concerned about the "Institutional/Audience Church" and I just want to make sure you understand my review in that context.
The church is not a business and this book seems to lean in that direction with its views on having a board of elders (the board) with one head elder (CEO). They bring up the Bylaws which is just an unbiblical idea in the first place. I find it interesting that they do not give any scriptures for having a head elder, and just use what has worked or not worked as a basis for their structure. Experience is a huge factor, but to teach something that is not found in scripture as fact is a dangerous thing.
I read through the first couple chapters and then skimmed the rest, reading bits a pieces, only to return it to this site. It wasn't what I was looking for.
Great service Mar 8, 2008
I always go back to this site. I know I can find what I need and it will be hassle free.
It's that simple Mar 1, 2006
When questions arise concerning church leadership and what the Bible says about the "how" we do it, Kreider takes a simple approach and spells it out clear. This book was a good reminder to elders and deacons who get a little confused from time to time with their roles.
