Most Beautiful Body

Who has the most beautiful body?

Some of those from... 

..The local work out facilities?
..Beauty pageants?
..Movies, magazines and videos???

NONE OF THE's not even close...
The Most beautiful BODY is in the church...
The BODY OF CHRIST is best described as believers with a variety of different backgrounds, personalities, appearances and GIFTS ...functioning together and building one another up in their faith in Jesus making the GOOD NEWS KNOWN to everyone

HERE'S how the Bible describes THE BODY of CHRIST:
"For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you. For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully."
Romans 12:3‭-‬8
THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT WB is trying to do, so on 1/31/18 we started Witness Breakthrough (WB) training at our chruch... and thereafter every Wednesday night from 4-5:45 pm
We have formed the following BODY OF CHRIST WB committees in our pursuit of positively encouraging attendees to become John 3:16 witnesses...compelled by love, where they live, move and have their being

- PRAYER COMMITTEE...prior to the WB sessions
-5 TABLE FACILITATORS (each TABLE 6-8)....capturing the input from many of the 36 people in attendance
-3 MAP FACILITATORS...modeling where they go each day...neighborhood, shopping, work, exercise. bank, restaurants...all locations captured on a local geographic map...learning to listen...Pro. 18:13...moving into sharing the GOSPEL
4-SCRIBE RECAP of our Wednesday meetings
...Here's a recap of our first meeting from our SCRIBE:
Summary of Witness Breakthrough Session #1-
1/31/2018 Big Canoe Chapel

At last… af ter much praying and planning the long-awaited Witness Breakthrough Training got underway with 36 enthusiastic participants meeting in McCormick Hall.
Wyatt Wood opened our time together with a prayer of thanksgiving , which also acknowledged the many ways God has prepared us for this study; individually and as members of the Body of Christ at Big Canoe. 
Ted welcomed everyone and lost no time in getting right into the study. We viewed a powerful video overview filmed at Church of the Apostles, a sister church in Atlanta which has a long-standing partnership with Witness Breakthrough. Their excitement in sharing the many ways this study has changed their lives and their ch urch was bothinspiring and challenging. 
Ted then shared his “One Minute Testimony” showing us how we can concisely present an overview of our relationship with God in Christ in a compelling way by focusing on:

·  What our life was like before we met Christ
·  How we met Christ
·  How our life has been different in our relationship with Christ

We then reviewed the Witness Breakthrough goals , listed in the introduction pages of the book, “If We Are the Light, Why is America so Dark?” Please read this section carefully and prayerfully a few more times this week to have a solid understanding of where we are going together and what your personal expectations are for this study. 
Ted emphasized the central themes of Witness Breakthrough:

  • Sharing the gospel without love (agape) can potentially make us just a noisy gong or clanging cymbal
  • We are learning to frame meaningful questions and LISTEN to people carefully and intentionally
  • If we are compelled by love, and not duty, to share our faith we will experience God’s power
  • As we seek to be intentional about sharing our faith we become part of God’s team and part of His plan and process to draw all men unto Himself (John 12:32)
  • The simple, but powerful; truth of John 3:16 brings clarity and focus to our interactions with others. That’s the message of the wristband too: “I am a sinner…Jesus Christ is my Savior”...

I have been able to structure the WB equipping based upon my full time ministry experiences for the past 15 years working with a wide variety of churches and sizes in many parts of America

the involvement of many members of the BODY OF CHRIST in the WITNESS TRAINING process as noted


By God's grace and His mercy I have had the privilege and experience of speaking and testifying of my faith in Jesus Christ in 44 states and more than 230 cities throughout America for the past 45 years... since WB was formed as a 501C3 non profit...I have been called full time to not only proclaim the Gospel but also train believers how to more effectively be John 3:16 witnesses where they live, move and have their being...compelled by love not duty.

ONE OF THE MAJOR KEYS to training success is to involve
THE BODY OF CHRIST you will see by all our weekly updates, lectures are only a part of the WB is my joy unspeakable to watch the Body of Christ also lived out in the equipping process... and achieve
