Roger Thoman is the founder of New Springs, a Community of Home Churches, and Appleseed Ministry which provides training in several nations for planters of simple churches. He has been involved in church planting since 1976. Roger and his wife Brooks train and coach leaders in several developing countries to multiply disciples and simple churches.

His favorite Scripture passage is Luke 18:9-14 - And He also told this parable to some people who trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and viewed others with contempt: “Two men went up into the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. The Pharisee stood and was praying this to himself: ‘God, I thank You that I am not like other people: swindlers, unjust, adulterers, or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week; I pay tithes of all that I get.’ But the tax collector, standing some distance away, was even unwilling to lift up his eyes to heaven, but was beating his breast, saying, ‘God, be merciful to me, the sinner!’ I tell you, this man went to his house justified rather than the other; for everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but he who humbles himself will be exalted.”

Roger's recommended resources include having a spiritual coach like Tony Stoltzfus and the book Radical by David Platt.
