House/Simple Church Ministries Growing

House/Simple Church Ministries Growing

“Ministry” as a vocation is usually considered a two-choice path: the traditional church route or para-church route.  However, an exciting third path is emerging!  God is equipping individuals and families to serve full-time outside these structures as local missionaries helping to plant and lead simple/organic/house churches.  Pictured here are two such friends and co-laborers here with me in Central Kentucky!  While each of us started from different places (Moise is a former engineer, Kaleb came from a traditional church pastor role, and I started with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes), all of us have found ourselves fully available to focus on...

“Going To Church” By Dana Vogel

“Going To Church” By Dana Vogel

By Dana Vogel We all know it’s important to meet together often as believers for our mutual encouragement. This is true and good. What’s not necessarily true and good, is that many of us equate this with Sunday worship service. My submission to you is this: weekly service attendance is too much and not enough at the same time. What do I mean by that? TOO MUCH: It’s too much simply because there is no command in the Bible to “go to church”. Or to go once a week, or to attend any specific kind of service. In fact, at certain times, a believer may not even have the privilege of any Christian fellowship whatsoever (think of Paul in prison, as an example.)...

Zach Winters with Sylvie, Dana Vogel – POSTPONED

  UPDATE:  THIS SHOW HAS BEEN POSTPONED.  STAY TUNED AND WE WILL UPDATE FOLKS ABOUT A NEW DATE.  MEANWHILE, ENJOY ZACH’S MUSIC WHILE QUARANTINED! Earlier this year, I was excited to see that Zach Winters released a new album. I first heard of Zach Winters when I noticed a tweet from one of my favorite songwriters, Josh Garrels, giving a shout out to Zach Winters and the album Monarch.   I checked it out and immediately became a Zach Winters fan, as did Karla.  When his newest album, Love is a Garden, came out, I immediately purchased it and knew right from the first track, “Give Thanks,” that this album was a gift to me personally. Living in the...

Christmas Celebration with Lylak December 16

Each year, we host a Christmas celebration gathering for simple church friends and family in the region.    This Christmas, we are partnering with local musicians from the band Lylak and simple church friends Roser (Matthew and Alysa Cobb) to host a night of Christmas carols and songs. Perhaps slightly different from years past, we expect that there will be many folks unfamiliar with the idea of simple church desiring to come via their connection with Lylak.  So, this will be an opportunity for the various simple churches to connect, but also a chance for us to bless the city a message of hope through carols and song.  In addition, we will have opportunities...
