Reality Church

Reality church!  Forget about reality TV: Experience reality church, where everyday people show and tell what God has done.

“Why watch reality TV when I can just open my blinds and look out my window to all the reality I can handle?”  –Jarod Kintz.  And why watch reality TV when we can meet with brothers and sisters in Christ and share our hearts and our lives with one another in real, unscripted testimonies and sharing, and genuine caring, sparked by the Holy Spirit

Reality TV is a show.  Reality church is a showcase for the living, resurrected Jesus Christ.

Reality TV is produced for an audience of human TV viewers.  In reality church, the audience is God.

Reality TV is edited.  Reality church is unedited.

Reality TV is planned, written, and programmed by human writers.  Reality church is unprogrammed and surrounds you in the direct actions and promptings of the Holy Spirit.

Some people say that reality TV stops people from thinking.  (“I think that reality TV is so bad. It is a tool by the media to not make people think.”  –Naveen Andrews)  However, reality church releases creativity, wonder, awe, and deep thinking.

Reality church meets in order to encounter the living, resurrected Jesus Christ working in and through our spiritual brothers & sisters.  Beyond gathering to look at & listen to one man on a stage, reality church comes together to look at & listen to the world’s greatest sage–the living, resurrected Jesus Christ.   (“Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith” –New Testament)

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 @
