"Imagine a church where the main thing is the main thing. A church where people convene primarily in homes and secondarily in public spaces for worship services. A church where the ministry is carried out by ordinary people and it is the pastor's job to identify, deploy, train and support these ministers. A church that is warm and accepting of both the churched and the unchurched. A church that sees hundreds/thousands baptized each year. A church that has no geographical limits but spreads from house to house---neighborhood to neighborhood, city to city, nation to nation. A church that is not just multi-location--but also multiethnic and multinational. What if this church were more like a movement than a ministry?"
Deliberate Simplicity---Dave Browning.
