Why are local households so effective for God’s work in the book of Acts?

Local households are very effective means of communicating the truth of the Gospel and expanding the Kingdom of God in the book of Acts.  Multiple reasons exist, but I should give a few: 1) small group discipling made modeling the gospel real 2) leaders were chosen by communities and those leaders applied skills immediately 3) households were natural networks of families connected in communities and neighborhoods 4) households were inconspicuous to outside persecution, they did not have “church” or “Christian” written all over them. 5) Households were geographically dispersed, widening the physical capacity for Gospel influence (as opposed to a centralized church with influence in only immediate surroundings.
