Establishing the Church Simply

The author looks at the simplified program of the LDS Church, which is designed to help small branches with a large number of new converts. The simplified program was pioneered in the 1970s and developed in the 1980s. The author tells of his experiences in using these programs in the Navajo nation, in Saskatchewan, and in inner-city Detroit. The success of the program offers dramatic evidence of the wisdom of gradually moving into use of the full meetings and practices of the Church.
