Celebrating the podcast’s fourth birthday with an important discussion on how to stay together as a simple church and multiply at the same time! Thanks for listening!
I wanted to pass along this free download to A Simple Church Christmas Vol. 2! Every year we invite simple church communities and their friends to come together and celebrate Christ’s birth. In addition to enjoying fellowship and food, we have enjoyed sharing the story of Christmas through song. Several years ago we released volume one of these recordings and now I have for you volume two featuring recordings from our past two Christmas Celebrations! As we get ready for Christmas and our this year’s Simple Church Christmas Celebration on December 17th I wanted to edit and make these available! … Read More »Free Music: A Simple Church Christmas Vol. 2
With #GivingTuesday upon us, we would like to give a gift to you! Enjoy these songs recorded live at our simple church christmas gathering a couple of years ago! You can listen to and download all the songs for FREE at the link below. If you enjoy it, please share it as well! This was our first ever attempt at recording a “simple church” worship event live.

This release also includes a song recorded live at a… Read More »Free Christmas Music
The Luke 10 Manual is a great resource that we have linked here before. It exists on many sites on the web but often time those sites can vanish making our links broken (occasionally you can find a paperback copy from Amazon as well). To make sure that you can find and access this resource, I am hosting it now here on our site (If this is a problem with anyone related to this book, then please let me know.) Tony and Felicity Dale did a great time leading us through the principles found in Luke 10 at our conference… Read More »Luke 10 Manual – Steve and Marilyn Hill (Free eBook)
I wanted to make everyone aware of a great FREE resource. I recently revisited Roger Thoman’s free ebook “Simple/House Church Revolution” and it is really a great resource for anyone considering simple/house church ministry.

For the past several months, those involved in leading, co-leading, or considering to lead simple church communities have been examining the importance of the five-fold ministry laid out in Ephesians 4. You may recall that I encouraged everyone to consider if they tend to “function” as an Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Shepherd, or Teacher (APEST). You may also recall that I pointed everyone to an online assessment that I later discouraged because I felt that it was not really helpful or accurate (and it cost money). Well, this week I found another online five-fold ministry assessment that is FREE. While I… Read More »Free Five Fold Survey
If a person states that God speaks to them on a regular basis they are considered a bit kooky in many Christian circles. With our wider cultural context in mind, imagine the firestorm that would stem from one of our presidential candidates declaring that he frequently hears God speak. Yet, Jesus tells us: My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. – John 10:27 The idea that God communicates in an understandable way to His disciples is not only foundational to the Bible and the Christian faith, but possibly at the core of discipleship–being one… Read More »Listening To God (Download Free Book!)
