Here’s a one question quiz: What is church?
1) A place where people passively sit in chairs? Or
2) A gathering where everyone shares? (See the Bible’s answer @ I Corinthians 14:26.)
I want to be a Christianitypreneur (I made that word up.) I googled and found two similar words: Christpreneur and Christianpreneur, but I didn’t find my new word.
Christianitypreneur means to develop a fresh approach to church, a creative way to worship. I want to discover, demonstrate, and disperse creative ways to let the Holy Spirit, in all of His Divine freshness, be in actual control of a Christian worship meeting — where human control, programs, and agendas are set aside so that the risen, present Christ can, Himself, take charge and run things His way.
We’ve been working on this for 4 years at The Salvation Army Berry Street Worship Center in Nashville. It is definitely a non-traditional approach to a Christian worship meeting. There is no sermon. Instead people are invited to share Scriptures, testimonies, words of instruction, encouragement, prayers, and one-to-one ministry.
The results so far have been truly amazing. Lives are changing in front of our eyes. If you would like to experience a little Christianityprenuering, come visit: Sunday mornings at 10:45 and Thursday nights at 6:30. You’ll be glad you did. We are located at 225 Berry St., Nashville, 37207.
