Pennsylvania Missions Director, Will Peterson, comments on Simple Church’s new online features:

“Being a sponsoring conference of the Simple Church Global Network initiative, we want to thank Simple Church. These new online options and resources have made it possible for our conference to set up a Simple Church login account and supportively connect with all the Simple Churches in the Pennsylvania Conference. I have always appreciated Simple Church’s emphasis on accountability, and this feature has increased my appreciation. It is a pleasure to interface with an organization that holds itself accountable and is willing to be open in that regard. It speaks volumes for the integrity of the Simple Church Global Network while at the same time keeping things…simple.”

NOTE: Please do not provide “start-up funds” for CORE4 teams who start Simple Churches. This actually goes against the principles of church planting movements and can cripple their process of “being the church.” To learn more about the principles of church planting movements, watch this 10-minute video: 10 Characteristics of Christ Planting Movements.

“Because the giving landscape is changing, Barna researchers believe there is extraordinary urgency behind this research. The shifting landscape of generosity means that church leaders not only should grapple with these questions, but also they must do so. There is no time like the present—when things are as good as they are likely to get—to explore the current and future efficacy of funding models for church and church planters.” “It’s likely to get tough in the next 10 years, and we have a God-given responsibility to think and plan for the lean years ahead. Now that we understand the context, we can use this data to get ready.” “In light of the research, what systems need to change? What would it look like to make a whole new model?” p. 47, 50-51.
