Did the Holy Spirit enable a failed attempt at Socialism for the Church?

There's a theory shared from time to time in my ears... seems to emerge from reading Romans 15:25-27 & I Corinthians 16:1-9 with the "all things in common" descriptions in Acts 2 & 4.The idea…Continue

Thanks, I'm excited to be here.  I'm a ministry student who is making the slow transition out of institutional church...I'm very excited about what the Lord has in store!

I don't know of any. We're looking as of now.

Thank you for the information. Our family did fellowship with Bob Noah this weekend!

We are church planting in a rural area in southern Ecuador and use a house church approach.  We are not exclusively working that way, but try to encourage our national partners to go with it.  We are having success with a Saraguro Quichua house church network in Zamora province.  I am not sure what is meant by simple church, we encourage an I am Second type Bible studies and participative worship.  We are going to start a new ministry with mestizos in west Loja province targeting 5-6 rural counties that have no church.

I'm not! can you tell me more about it?

Hello Marshall,,

You reply comment in part to me was, "San Jose Christ Fellowship was meeting in Redwood City. Also, there is said to be a gathering at San Mateo, Millbrae."

I was not able to find any connection for a simple church gathering, do you think you may be able to find contact information for me?

If not that's ok.

It appears that the Lord may be gathering ten adults for fellowship. I recently attended a conference with Jon Zens and Milt Rodriguez who may be open to assisting with a church plant.

No - I don't have any info on that group. I would be interested in learning more.

Hi Marshall;

It was the Lord who began to show me through scripture about His church; its purpose and most of all how important Unity is to the Lord for His church and How He has established His ways to accomplish His spiritual purposes for His people,  3 year journey with the Lord up until where He has me now but so much joy in seeing lives being changed  one thing that happened about 85% of the church left over 2 year period once I moved out in this direction with the Lord.  

God is Good!  so much more to say it you would like to meet up we could talk so more about this.

Hi Marshall

We were meeting in 2 homes but have decided to combine to one home. We meet up in Raleigh. I used to be the pastor of Calvary Chapel in Raleigh but the Lord has lead me to meeting together where the meetings are participatory, celebrating the Lord's supper as a full meal and becoming a family of believers knowing The Lord's headship over His church and His Presence when we gather together as His body.

Be Blessed In Christ  John

2013 simply

It's been a year of some revelation in simple churches. Most significant and always, the revelation of Jesus Christ whom we cherish with "simplicity and purity of devotion." Among lesser revelations, the sometimes painfully obvious opportunities for maturity, and to loosening any white knuckled grip upon the old un-simple man-made methods or perspectives.

Simple dumps the complex psych, moral & social webs we used to be building or entangled with. When a man…

A Simple Adventure In Irony?

With simple church, as a movement, appearing to many today as to be narrowing or fading into space on a bookshelf... Have been reflecting in prayer; hopeful the legacy of simple church (and organic church) to not become the fusion by-products in a larger set of new micro-denominations. Questions surface; people asking along the lines of why simple hasn't been simply more? Why simple church doesn't grow everywhere like a miracle grown plant!?

When I visit a movement-inspired…

out of destruction

thru 7 years helping to parse a global prayer list, I've not before seen such a flood as has already come forward out of destruction this week in Oklahoma. Remembering also the ekklesia there; the saints of God One in Christ, carrying the compassionate and healing virtue of Christ in them; knowing the mystery of death and life; knowing the God was not in the wind; enabled to lift a world right-side-up.

Simple Failures?

What an awesome timeline slice we now live and work in!  While the nations rage and the pillars of long-established systems are crumbling, men everywhere being examined by God and His messengers for who is on the Lord's side?  It's a dynamic examination resulting in relatively fewer simple gatherings, and with disappointment among some who had hoped that simple church and smaller gatherings would become the next great wave of religious influence…

New Discipleship Course

Practical Stewardship:

Would you like to be a part of a very practical conversation by business owners looking for accountability in giving and learning from each other practical stewardship of the resources that the Lord has provided?
