Can a church service abound with preachers & teachers?

We can preach and teach or we can cultivate an atmosphere where preachers and teachers abound. Let’s make disciples and let church services overflow with preachers and teachers.

Jesus said it’s foolish to hear His words but not do them. (Matthew 7:26) To understand the Bible we need to experience it, not just learn things about it.

In all that we do, let’s cultivate connection and communication with Christ. Christian growth takes off when people are listened to and allowed to share insights in meetings.

Worship is to gaze at the risen Jesus & to engage in humble interaction with Him. When Christians experience that their active sharing is needed in a worship gathering, their perspective of church is transformed.

When Christians meet for worship, with open, cooperative communication; the Holy Spirit moves into the leadership role. It’s powerful when Christ-followers come together and make themselves vulnerable! Allowing the Holy Spirit to express Himself through anybody present, opens the door for miracles!

When worship reaches beyond the script & connects with the Spirit, awe moves in! It’s difficult to worship without awe! (“Everyone was filled with awe.” -Acts 2:43) To experience awe is to worship!

Watching a Jesus bug
Walking on water
I’m reminded that
God can do anything,
If we don’t quench
The Holy Spirit!

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @
