Welcome to our website. We are a band of friends who are committed to finding new paths, in a post-Christendom world, 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 relational settings ... it might be in a home, in a business venue within a family network or among an affinity group of friends who enjoy sports or other activities together. Some call it 'simple church' or 'organic church.' To us, its all about the good news of the Kingdom which Jesus modelled, taught and died for.

We are stimulating an alternative to 'church as we know it.' We recognize the exodus from the congregational scene as an opportunity to connect, build and mobilize Jesus followers into a missional focus

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.

    Dr. Doug Hamm of Victoria, BC is founding editor of Pathfinders Today. A resource to encourage and inspire you as a follower of Jesus, committed to living for the Kingdom in simple ways everywhere and at all times.

    During this COVID Season we are very mindful how the foundations of modern living are being shaken and the stresses which many are experiencing.

    Warmly in Christ,

What we do ...

We are an association of people who are eager to start small, indigenous initiatives that move 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
  • focusing outward to seekers
  • practical discipleship and accountability
  • reproducibility of fellowships to create new fellowships
  • relational and intentional
  • house churching / marketplace cells
  • Kingdom-centric
