Dave Browning is a visionary minimalist and the founder of Christ the King Community Church, International (CTK). CTK is a non-denominational, multi-location church that has been noted as one of the “fastest growing” and “most innovative” churches in America by employing the K.I.S.S method: “keep it simple and scalable.” Dave is the author of several books, including Deliberate Simplicity.
Dave’s passion is to see the church grow organically and exponentially through relationships. Dave’s vision is to see a prevailing multi-location church emerge that will transform the spiritual landscape. Since it’s beginning in 1999, CTK has become a mini-movement, with locations in a number of states, countries and continents.
Prior to CTK, Dave pastored in traditional and mega-church contexts. His experiences led him to become a pastorpreneur and to break many of the rules of the established church. A scion of simplicity, Dave coined the phrase “deliberate simplicity” to describe a new equation for church development, where less is more, and more is better.
Dave is married to Kristyn and has three children, Erika, Jenna and Daron. He lives in Burlington, Washington.
