Clipboard Jesus is Coming to Nashville!

Church meetings have traditionally kept the living, resurrected Jesus on the sidelines, like a backup quarterback, holding a clipboard for the preacher who programs and runs the meeting.

In the news: Clipboard Jesus is coming to Nashville this summer. His name is Charlie Whitehurst and he has just been signed as the new backup quarterback for the Tennessee Titans. He got his nickname because as a backup, he walks around the sidelines with a clipboard and because people think that he looks like Jesus. So we wait and see . . . clipboard Jesus

Will Charlie Clipboard Jesus Whitehurst get a chance to get in the game for Nashville’s Titans?
–Will the living, resurrected Jesus Christ get a chance to take over some Nashville church meetings?

When asked recently about his nickname, Whitehurst said:  “I don’t necessarily endorse that, I certainly don’t like the clipboard part. The Jesus part, I don’t know if I can live up to that, either. Can any of us? It’s something I heard a few years ago. I’ve tried my best not to perpetuate the thing down the road at all. But I guess there are worse things that can be said about you.”

We want Jesus off the sidelines and running the meeting at The Salvation Army Berry Street Worship Center, where regular people show and tell what God has done, as led by the living Jesus:  Sundays at 10:45 am., 225 Berry St., Nashville, 37207.

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 @
