Item Description...
The simple revolution has begun. From the design of the iPod to the uncluttered Google home page, simple ideas are changing the world.

Simple Church clearly calls for Christians to return to the simple gospel-sharing methods of Jesus. No bells or whistles required, so to speak.

Based on case studies of four hundred American churches, authors Thom Rainer and Eric Geiger prove that the process for making disciples has quite often become too complex. Simple churches are thriving, and they are doing so by taking these four ideas to heart: Clarity. Movement. Alignment. Focus.

Each idea is examined here, simply showing why it is time to simplify.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Use wisely  Mar 16, 2007
There are tremendous principles in this book that every pastor (and staff) can apply to their congregation. As with any book related to ministry, though, it is extremely important that one read the section that talks about applying the principles within your present context. It is very insightful and helpful in many areas of ministry.
Simple Church  Feb 22, 2007
This book was excellent. It isn't rocket science or deep theology but is clear and offers insight for churches of various theological backgrounds. I read it and then bought enough for my core staff and key leaders!
Keep It Simple Stupid  Feb 1, 2007
Here is a good book for all churches out there. I think that all of us can begin to complicate things if we are left alone and things are left unexamined. In this fast pace of the church world we are often times rushed and so it is that many things go unchecked and the result is complexity, over-programming and frazzled volunteers and pastors.

If you read this book, which i do recommend, be ready to truly be honest with yourself and be ready to make some changes. But the end result will be good.
excellent guide for ministry strategy and structure  Jan 18, 2007
Another leader in ministry let me know about this book. I received it and couldn't put it down. It highlights and presents practical solutions to the issues many have experienced at churches with many good things going on, but ultimately not leading anywhere or making many new disciples. Stagnation is not God's plan.

Over the past year our organization has studied and put into play much of North Point's strategy. While there are many similarities, don't think this is North Point part 2. This book demonstrates the underlying brilliance that has helped many churches grow strategically, of which North Point is one.

Thankfully the book's basis is research, so it's not a "we prefer this model...or that model just because we like it." This doesn't present a model but a basis for building or re-building your model. Bottom line: How successful you wish to be will largely be related to how simple you're able to design or prune to.

Use this book as a staff and get it to the elders and others of influence. Highly recommend.
Great book that focuses on the point of it all: entering God's presence  Jan 18, 2007
This book does an amazing job of bringing all of us back to the truest point of any ministry, personal or large-scale: helping others enter the presence of God, which then helps transform them into disciples who serve and give glory to Christ.

The best part of this book is the fact that the message is, as the title indicates, utterly simple yet not superficial. The purpose of the church and the family of God is not a difficult one in terms of understanding but utterly difficult in terms of execution, which this book helps define and provides ideas on how to accomplish it in multiple ways.

If you like this book, I highly recommend (if not demand) that you read, Craig Groeschel's, "Chazown" and J.G. Marking's "A Voice Is Calling," as it focuses on discipleship as the combination of desire and discipline, which draws the follower into the presence of God in all aspects of life.

Both books are gread for group studies and must reads for anyone in the ministry.
