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 @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP

When Christianity’s no fun, an hour a week is enough; when it is fun, 24/7/365 isn’t!

People don’t need more explanation of Christianity, but more demonstration of it. Christians need supernatural encounters with the risen Jesus, more than logical answers to theological questions. You have to wait till Sunday morning to hear your preacher live and … Continue reading
