traditional vs organic structure

Can it be this easy? What keeps the bottom chart from morphing/defaulting/shapeshifting into the top?

Is there any validity to the top diagram? If so, can the charts be combined?

What is the role of a pastor or 5fold leader?

The zillion dollar question: "Can organic church work with a paid pastor?"

(chart from Simple Church)

  1. Hey Dave,

    Appreciate the interaction you're doing with church structure . . . keep it up!

    I do have one request: I'm not sure if you're aware of this or not, but taking the code from my blog page for the graphic displayed here is hotlinking . . . thus, I'm getting robbed out of some of my bandwidth . . . .

    What would be better is if you saved the image to your desktop and then inserted the image by uploading through Blogger . . . they have plenty of space and bandwidth to spare! :)

    Thanks for your attention to this . . . and thanks for the referring to my site!

  2. Cool . . . peace bro and Godspeed in the ministry down there!

  3. Glenn, way your stuff


Hey, thanks for engaging the conversation!
