What if God is not counting our sins against us? This seems like a silly question, because if you are reading this, there is a good chance you are a Christian, and you would know to say to me, “Of course He is not counting our sins against us!” However, if an adulterer was sitting in front of you, would you say, “Good news! God does not count your sins against you!” Perhaps you may not be so sure that He is not counting in such a situation? He is only not counting the sins of those who have first… Read More »Is God Counting?
I’d like to thank my friend Brian for sharing this short video of Francis Chan “rethinking church.” Francis Chan left his mega church about the same time we started down the simple church road and . observing his journey from mega church to multiplying house or simple churches has been encouraging! Due to his prominent voice in the American church, he is also helping others who share his convictions find courage to explore church outside the box. In this video, he gives is a great 10 minute explanation of simple church and what we are trying to encourage here! In… Read More »Francis Chan – Rethinking Church (Video)
Pancake Sundays I saw this commercial for HomeGoods just now and I thought it would be great to share! Two of the most common questions I get are, “How can we get started with simple church?” and “How are children involved in simple church?” I thought the commercial illustrates potential answers to both!
Take a break from what you are doing and watch this short video. Will you be a trader? I am afraid that if we are unwilling to be traders that our simple churches will be reduced to nothing more than a different type of church meeting we attend each week (or whenever our time allows). How can your simple church community help encourage each other to be traders?
Friends, Several years ago a friend involved in a simple church hosted a viewing of The Star of Bethlehem movie. Since watching it, I find myself thinking about it and bringing it up in conversation most every Christmas. I wanted to let everyone know that this movie is now available on YouTube and I’m linking below a version that can be watch in HD (You may need to adjust the settings to watch it in HD. You can do that by clicking the gear). Perhaps you will not agree with everything suggested in this video/Bible study, but it is a… Read More »Watch The Star of Bethlehem Online
UPDATE: Join Gavin and Forrest Head, with BigLife@Home for a Google Hangout on Wednesday June 1st at 8PM to learn more about the Zumé Project and pray for our nation. Details HERE. Over the last several months people from around the country have been coming together from various denominations and even types of churches to pray for and consider the common purpose of multiplying disciples, and yes, simple churches across the nation under the banner of the Zumé Project. The Zumé Project (see video below) is an approach to fulfilling the Great Commission in North America by helping to establish disciple making groups or… Read More »Zumé Project Preview
There are a lot videos floating around that aid in explaining simple church and house church ideas. We’ve gathered several here on this website. This particular video pulls from a few of my favorites. I also like the presenters thought about how simple churches can multiply… be in two simple churches at the same time! I’m interested in your thoughts on this idea. In some ways I think that the first “community” someone would be involved in could be something like a “Life Transformation Group” or a smaller disciple-making relationship of two or three. Nonetheless, I think he does a… Read More »A Good Video Explaining Simple Church
