That sounds like all the work of the church is being done by some professional subset of it, rather than everyone. This is the opposite of the model the apostles taught the churches they established, where every member of the body has spiritual gifts giving them a role to play in the edification of the rest of the body (such as in 1 Corinthians 12-14). Members weren't just supposed to go to the assembly and sit there and be fed by someone else. They were all to feed and build up one another according to whatever their gifts were.
You feel that this other approach pays off 100-fold for you. But you should also ask yourself what you're doing to edify the rest of the body, not just what some subset of them are doing to edify you.
