A Simple Faith began in the summer of 2007, as a Bible Study gathered around a kitchen table. Things got “out of hand” rather quickly, and a non-traditional congregation began to grow. True to the name, A Simple Faith is not a complex religious organization. We have a few small groups, forgo official membership, and maintain an uncomplicated structure.
What We Believe
A Simple Faith beliefs reflect the historical confessions of the Christian faith, best summarized in the Apostle’s Creed
Ronnie McBrayer is the founder and Senior Pastor at A Simple Faith. Additionally, he is an author, musician, certified Enneagram teacher, and holds degrees in Theology (MTh) and Ministry (DMin). With the experience of nearly thirty years in leading faith communities, directing non-profits, and providing spiritual direction, Ronnie wants nothing more than for people to discover “the unforced rhythms of grace” and the unconditional love of God. He especially connects with those who are recovering from unhealthy religion, those who are reconstructing or integrating their changing faith, and those who have more questions than answers.
Garet joined A Simple Faith in the Spring of 2018 as the Associate Pastor after serving as a Youth Pastor in the Mid-West for nearly a decade. He and his wife, Erin, have two boys (Graeme & Samuel), and two spunky dogs (Rita & Ripley). Garet earned his B.S. in Bible/Youth from Manhattan Christian College in 2009 and his M.A. in Ministry from Lincoln Christian Seminary in 2017. He is passionate about teaching/preaching the simplicity of the Gospel and inviting people to be a part of the amazing journey that comes from knowing Jesus.
