Simple Church was started by missionary-minded lay-people and continues as a grass-roots lay-led movement. It is a very old idea that empowers the priesthood of all believers to do all the work of disciple making. Matthew 28:18-20.
Simple Church is front-line missionary work focused on reaching unchurched and secular people with the Everlasting Gospel of Jesus. Revelation 14.
Simple Church is missionally designed to train an epidemic of CORE4 front-line missionaries - 10,000 would be a good start.
Simple Church is built on trusting relationships.
