fast facts about xcf structure
Fast facts about XCF structure.
  • The home group is the core structure of Xenos Christian Fellowship.
    • Around here folks use the expressions: ‘home church,’ ‘home group,’ or ‘small group’ interchangeably.
    • Apart from the home group meeting, most home groups have separate men's and women's groups called, “cell groups” or “study groups”. Typically these “cells” are not open to non-Christian guests.
