Arklatex Best: Simple Church

Posted: Updated:

This past Sunday one church here in the Arklatex celebrate its six birthday.

Simple Church isn't like most churches. It has rock music, crazy videos and a pastor wearing jeans and t-shirt.

But it still draws a crowd of worshippers well over 6000.

It started out small, from a group of 200 hundred that would gather at Louisiana Boardwalk. It was an idea from First Baptist Church of Bossier.

Justin Hangler is the church's pastor. He prayed for the church to grow...and it did. It just six years Simple Church moved from an one theater location at the Boardwalk to the Shreveport Convention Center.

The church does many activities around the area. They include collecting back pacts for Bossier elementary children and bigger projects like building wells in Central America.

Simple Church meets every Sunday at the Convention Center. They have many family events throughout the week. For more information you can check out their website here.
