About Milt Rodriguez

Bio for Milt Rodriguez

My name is Milt Rodriguez and I came to know Jesus Christ as my Lord and Saviour in July of 1973 in Southern California. Since then, my wife, Mary, and I have been involved with numerous churches and ministries. Everything from the Jesus People movement, to the charismatic movement, denominational, non-denominational, pentecostal, fundamental, and evangelical movements and churches.

We have served as deacons, elders, worship leaders, youth leaders, pastors, and street ministry to the wayward youth on the streets of South Orange County in California and Bellingham, Washington.

For the last 18 years or so, we having been interested and working in what some people are now calling the "house church movement". In 1990 we moved to Northern California and started a few "house churches". These are groups where all the believers are encouraged and taught to function as the Body of Christ in the gatherings. The meetings are very informal and casual and anyone and everyone can share what the Lord has placed on their hearts. Also, there is an emphasis on the following: the centrality of the Person of Jesus Christ, the eternal purpose of God, the church as the living expression of Jesus Christ (in all of His aspects), community (sharing our lives together), and bringing the love and good news of Christ to the world.

We have since been planting such churches throughout the country and several other countries.

We feel that this can best be done in small units that we call organic house churches. These are usually small groups of 20 or less believers. They exist to fulfill the eternal purpose of God which is the make Jesus Christ the sum of all things (Eph. 1:9,10). He is the Head, Life, and Center of the Church and we are here to flesh out that eternal purpose.
