The More Disciples Podcast | Episode 4


In an unconventional journey from being a bouncer to a pastor, Aaron Born has a wealth of experience to learn from. Operating from Victory Church, Aaron navigates the overlap of house churches within a megachurch context, fostering richer spiritual communities on local and global scales.

House Church Initiative

Aaron’s latest initiative involves empowering church members to form house churches. As smaller, home-based congregations, house churches bridge the gap between individual believers and the larger church community. Victory Church nurtures these house churches through robust training and empowerment, alongside the call for a missional DNA.

Challenges and Success

Implementing house churches within a megachurch context brings forth various challenges, including material development, cultural considerations, and balancing functions of small groups and house churches. Yet success stories, like reaching out to special-needs communities or engaging in interfaith discussions, affirm the transformative power of this approach.


Aaron’s journey illustrates the harmonious co-existence of house churches and megachurches. This fluidity in spiritual leadership and community formation keeps discipleship at the core: a calling to be answered whether it leads to a megachurch pulpit, a house church living room, or a bar turned spiritual hub.
