Changes for Monthly Leadership Training This Summer

Friends, As many of you know, we will approach “training” differently this summer.  Rather than the usual “3rd wednesday of the month” evenings at the Bank, I am encouraging simple church leaders to utilize the Zume Training tool over the next several weeks. My prayer is that several Zume training groups may emerge and meet in homes over the course of the summer.  Therefore, there will be no training this month, in June or July at the bank.  We will resume in August at the bank.  (We will host other summer network opportunites as posted here). How Do I Participate? New? If you are new to simple church and are interested in becoming a more...

UPDATE:  Special Opportunity Tomorrow In Lexington

Hello friends I wanted to shoot out this email to let you know about a last-minute confirmation that Curtis Sergeant will join us tomorrow night at First Southern National Bank for a special simple church training opportunity. Curtis lived as a missionary in China for over 10 years where he saw over hundreds of thousands come to Christ and thousands of simple/house churches birthed. He has served in many capacities over the years helping to encourage and train others to see disciples and churches multiplied. Curtis now lives in Alabama and will be in town for the International Conference on Missions (ICOM) being held at the Lexington Center this weekend. Curtis is also...

An Online Simple Church Multiplication Course

An Online Simple Church Multiplication Course

I wanted to share with everyone a very good online simple church course.  “Multiplication Concepts” is led by my new friend Curtis Sergeant. Curtis is involved in simple church multiplication and church planting movements across the globe. Curtis has a tremendous heart for our world and for those who are hopeless and in need of Christ.  It is out of this heart, his lifelong experiences in the harvest fields, and a close examination of the Scriptures that have given birth to the thoughts shared here in these training videos. While you may not follow 100% of everything that Curtis suggests, I know that anyone who is interested in seeing disciples and...

Ying and Grace Kai Story

Ying and Grace Kai Story

This week I had the privilege to meet and spend a little time with Ying Kai and his wife and Grace. It was great to have my faith stretched by their amazing story, humble attitude, and burden for the world to know the love of Jesus. Ying and Grace have experienced the power of multiplication in China (a term we can sometimes misuse here in the United States to describe addition and sometimes even division). Their story is a great encouragement and reminder to us that God is in fact a God of multiplication.  Through their example, we learn that when we expect multiplication to happen and we help others follow Christ in ways that are not dependent on complex systems...

Zumé Project Overview

The Zumé Project Small Tools for BIG IMPACT in the Kingdom Below is the Zumé Project overview.  I would ask that you pray about your involvement in this project.  Most of all, please pray that the Holy Spirit leads it!  Essentially, it is the same project of Simple Church Alliance as from the beginning we have been led to “multiply disciples and simple churches, starting in Central Kentucky and extending to the ends of the earth.”  The best way to think of Zumé is a tool that I believe God is going to use to help achieve this vision He has given us. I will be expanding on this outline in the weeks to come, but for now here is the overview…...

Zumé Project Preview

8 Ways To Start A Simple Church

8 Ways To Start A Simple Church

There are no formulas for how to start a simple church.  The Holy Spirit must be the Initiator and Leader if a real church community is to be birthed.  Even still, I can imagine some ways God could use you to birth simple churches: 1. LTG – As you and a friend or two begin a Life Transformation Group (LTG) and you see that LTG multiply into two LTGs, a simple church can be formed. It’s logical and natural that you say, “why don’t we all share a meal together?” If married, the husband’s and wife’s LTGs can come together weekly for simple church! There are many advantages to this because the multiplication of disciples is the building block of the new...
