What is a house church / Simple church?
The big question that perhaps you are asking is:
How is this different than our small groups that we have every week? How is this different than what the programs we are already doing in small community groups?
Join us as we tackle that and a few other questions in our webinar with Wolfgang Simson.
In a world where the church is being ignored, it is time to bring the church to the people, and not the people to the church, says researcher and church strategy consultant Wolfgang Simson.
His book Houses that Change the World (originally published in the UK) is widely recognized as a classic of the house church movement. Now revised as The House Church Book, this definitive work offers a comprehensive understanding of the past, present, and future of the house church movement—and the vital role of “ordinary” people in saturating the world with God’s truth.
Who is Wolfgang Simson?
Wolfgang Simson was born in Germany and has German, Jewish, and Hungarian roots.
Since 1983 Wolfgang has been involved in the planting of several churches and in church-based leadership positions, while at the same time beginning a life of extensive global research on growing churches, church planting movements, and revival and mission breakthroughs.
Wolfgang worked for two decades as a church growth, evangelism, and strategy consultant, researcher, and journalist within various Christian networks and regional and global strategy think tanks in close to sixty nations. He is the author of twelve books that have been translated into twenty languages.
Wolfgang joins the EvangelismCoach Webinar series to discuss practical insights into the house church movement that is reshaping western Christianity.
