New Podcasts Up!

Hello friends! We have several new podcasts up at keepitsimplepodcast.com. You can also subscribe on iTunes at this link as well. It’s been awhile since I’ve updated the links, so you may remember that beginning with Episode 65, Tom and I re-launched the podcast with the idea of starting from scratch and re-introducing the “Who?” “What?” “When?” “Where?” “Why?” and “How?” questions surrounding simple/organic church. Episode 75 “Who Can Baptize Others in The Simple Church?” was just released. You can check out all the new episodes and the old ones at our website.  If you feel...

Podcast: When You Come Together Part 1 & 2

Keep it Simple Podcast #68 – When You Come Together Part 1 Keep it Simple Podcast #69 – When You Come together Part 2 We have talked about “being” church in recent episodes. Today, Gavin and Tom explore “doing” church in a simple context. What happens when a simple church gathers each week? What goes on at a simple church meeting? What does a simple church do on the other six days of the week? Starting a few podcasts back, we “rebooted” the podcast and essentially started over!  To follow along with our new “season” of sorts, check out Podcast #65 and follow along!  You can download All Podcasts at...

Keep It Simple Podcast Relaunch!

For over two years now,  Tom Lecompte and I have co-hosted the simple church podcast “Keep it Simple.”  Tom, from New Covenant Fellowship (a house church network in Louisville, KY) and I originally started the podcast because we thought it would be a good opportunity to connect and discuss simple/house/organic church issues we were wrestling with.  Two years into it, we are still going and now we want to “relaunch” the podcast with a specific focus on helping others understand and carry out simple church principles with the hope of seeing new simple churches started. If we only had  6 or 7 podcasts to help you get started with simple...

Message of the Month – A Simple Church On Every Street

Message of the Month – A Simple Church On Every Street

Starting this month, I will highlight a message that I feel is important for believers to consider, especially those of us seeking to walk with Jesus outside the traditional, organizational structures. It’s always been a challenge for me to break-away from the school year calendar.  August continues to feel like the start of a new year for me.  Perhaps that is one of the reasons I am thinking a lot these days about refocusing on the vision God has for me, my family, and for the Simple Church Alliance.  For my first “message of the month,” I would like to share a message I gave a while back to a traditional church congregation highlighting the vision...

The Flipped Church – Insights From the Khan Academy

The Flipped Church – Insights From the Khan Academy

The Flipped Church – (insights from the Khan Academy) I have recently become intrigued with  Khan Academy. For those who may not be familiar, the Khan Academy began when Salman Khan started long distance tutoring his niece in math by creating short YouTube videos on various math subjects. Fast forward several years and the Khan Academy has grown to include numerous subjects and is being used across the globe by everyone from adults wanting to brush up on their skills to children within the context of their public school classes. If you listen to Khan talk about education or perhaps read his book The One World Schoolhouse: Education Reimagined, then you will hear about...
