about

Less is more. And more is better. This is the new equation for church development, a new equation with eternal results.Rejecting the "bigger is better" model of the complex, corporate megachurch, church innovator Dave Browning embraced deliberate simplicity. The result was Christ the King Community Church, International (CTK), an expanding multisite community church that Outreach magazine named among America's Fastest Growing Churches and America's Most Innovative Churches. Members of the CTK network in a number of cities, countries, and continents are empowered for maximum impact by Browning's "less is more" approach.

Scalability: Keep it expandingAs part of the Leadership Network Innovation Series, Deliberate Simplicity is a guide for church leaders seeking new strategies for more effective ministry.

Einstein noted once that any intelligent fool can make things bigger and more complex, but that it takes a touch of genius -- and a lot of courage to boot -- to move in the opposite direction. Drawing deeply from the living witness of Christ the King Community Church, David does exactly that, and in the process gives us not only a highly informative text on a critical subject, but also an inspiring one. -- Alan Hirsch, Author
