Equip Cell Groups

What is a Cell Group?

A cell is a group of three to fifteen people who meet weekly outside the church building for the purpose of evangelism, community, and discipleship with the goal of multiplication.

The cells overarching goal of glorifying God and achieving spiritual growth in Christ.

All small groups are not cell groups. One of the major differences between cell groups and generic small groups is the cell’s emphasis on evangelism, leadership development, and multiplication in each cell.

Cell churches also have other types of ministries (e.g., ushering, worship, prayer, missions, and training). These ministries, however, are not called cell groups, even though the particular ministry might be small and a group.

The ministries in a cell church, rather, support the cell and celebration. Everyone participating in a church ministry is also actively involved in a cell group, if not leading one. 

In the cell church, the cell group is the backbone, or center, of church ministry. Cell ministry replaces the need for many traditional programs.

In the cell church, however, the senior pastor is personally involved in cell ministry and is considered the point person and cell visionary.

The cell-driven church success is primarily measured through infrastructure growth as the church grows from the core to the crowd.

Equip Cell Groups

Equip Cell Groups are under the oversite of the senior pastor and existing cell leaders. They can multiply into more call groups with sent trained cell group leader to establish new cell groups. This can be based on the needs of Equip Church Global, the personal conviction of a new cell leader and the needs seen in the local community. Within reason cell groups can meet any time, anywhere at any venue so as to reach as many people as possible.
