Thom Rainer and Eric Geiger, Simple Church, 2011
“…in general, simple churches are growing and vibrant. Churches with a simple process for reaching and maturing people are expanding the kingdom. Church leaders wh have designed a simple biblical process to make disciples are effectively advancing the movement of the gospel. Simple churches are making a big impact.
Conversely, complex churches are struggling and anaemic. Churches without a process or with a complicated process for making disciples are floundering. As a whole, cluttered and complex churches are not alive. Our research shows that these churches are not growing. Unfortunately, the over programmed and busy church is the norm.” p. 14
