Welcome to our website. We are a band of friends who are committed to find new paths into the hearts of people so that we might share the love of Christ with them. We do this through winning, discipling and equipping people in simple fellowship settings ... it might be in a home, in a business venue or among an affinity group of friends who enjoy sports or other activities together. Some call it 'simple church' or 'organic church.'

Our Mission:

To experience Christ through simple churching and to pass it on.
Our Vision:
To advance the gospel through oikos practitioners, households of faith, who live among the lost and make disciples.

  • ELEMENTAL EAST Coming to Moncton, New Brunswick, April 27-28, 2019

    July 12, 2018
    A consultation of grassroots gospel workers who are seeking to live out and message the good news of the Kingdom.

    If you are struggling in your congregational scene and looking for new pathways, this event could catalyze new hope for you. You may be working with First Nations friends or other people groups. Or, you are a leader needing a reboot. We welcome you to come and help lead in this event by bringing a submission in the form of a Micro workshop presentation!

    Our keynote speaker, Neil Cole, has helped champion the themes of organic churching and organic leadership amidst an evangelical culture with aspirations of "big budgets, big buildings and big shots."

    See this link for our "Call For Papers" as we want YOU to consider an active part! www.pathfindersfellowships.com/events/


What we do ...

We are an association of people who are eager to start small, indigenous movements of the gospel and a more organic/missional approach to how we ‘do church’ ... by affirming the headship of Jesus in community, focus on making disciples, active labouring in the harvest and the dynamic functioning of Ephesians 4:11-12 roles at the local and trans-local level.  Our dream is to find new trails so that more unreached can discover the life Jesus offers. 

What we value ...
  • ordinary people leading 'where they are'
  • nurturing relationships
  • Scripture-rooted open fellowship and sharing
  • built around seekers
  • practical discipleship and accountability
  • reproducibility of fellowships to create new fellowships
  • relational and intentional
  • house churching / marketplace cells
