What a kingdom family network may look like

Rather than looking to “the corporate world” to define our structure, we choose to honour our values and look to Biblical Hebrew understanding. Judges 6:15 says, ‘So he said to Him, “Oh my Lord, how can I save Israel? Indeed my clan is the weakest in Manasseh, and I am the least in my father’s house.”’ In this verse it is clear that the Hebrew people lived in family, clan, tribe and nation. The structure of our Kingdom family (we rarely, if ever, refer to ourselves as Starfishoz) is built on a similar foundation and the language used is as follows:

Family = A local simple or organic church family; a house church, “parented” by elders

Clan = A cluster of two or three house churches (church with apostolic alignment)

Tribe = All who are part of the work (Acts 13:2) that is this expression of the church (acts 13:1) in South Australia

Nation = The Body of Christ in this nation and beyond
