Jubilee House Church
Jubilee House Church located in "almost heave" Charles Town, WV, is a community of men and women striving to achieve genuine reform among Christian believers. Tracing a philosophy of ecumenism back to Saint Barnabas and the first Council of Jerusalem about 47- 50, this seminal event propelled Christians forward to accept people of all races, language, and cultural backgrounds.
House Churches were the building blocks of early Christianity. Gatherings in homes of newly converted Jews and Gentiles served as a place of prayer, conversation, outreach and a eucharistic meal. Leaders of House Churches were both male and female, often husbands and wives. Some of these leaders named in the Christian Testament included: Husbands and wives, Junia and Andronicus, Priscilla and Aquila; women leaders like Phoebe and Lydia; and Gaius, Philemon, Nympha.
Good Shepherd Companions encourages the re-establishment of House Churches. Within small communities, members are able to forge a wholesome gospel-centered presence in their neighborhoods. The prayer gatherings serve as days of retreat and renewal for their members. Just like in early House Churches, members pray, reflect, discuss, and share a Eucharistic meal. Just like in early House Churches, everyone is welcome.
