Our Culture

The Ministry Team at Simple Church embodies Excellence, Enthusiasm, and Energy.


Our culture at Simple Church is one of authenticity, respect, and joy.

We are honest with how we are doing both in their work duties
and in pur personal lives. We ask for help when we need it, we ask
others if they need help, and we work together.


The Ministry Team is respectful first of God – we understand and respect Who He is, the love He has for each of us and the people around us, and how He has created us to live and be lights in the world. We are also respectful of each other – we understand that each of us is important and plays an essential role in the vision and plan God
has for Simple Church.


Finally, the culture is one of joy – we are excited about what God is doing in and through us and pursue laughter as a way to connect us together as God uses us together.
