An Organizational Vision for the Church of Tomorrow
The visionary content of The Net invites Christians to consider radical transformation in church organization. Ms. Wimmer asserts that the present institutional model of church organization does not reflect the teachings of Jesus. Through a collection of biblical evidence, she encourages God’s people to capture the organizational image Jesus desired for his bride—the image of a net. Beginning with the miraculous feeding of two multitudes, the reader is taken back to the time of the Exodus, then forward to the vision of the church triumphant, as described in Revelation. Through the breaking of twelve loaves of bread, organizational issues are examined from a tribal perspective, as well as the first believer’s perspective. Projections are then made about the church at the end of the age. What organizational aspects did Jesus want to retain from his Jewish heritage? What changes did Jesus want his disciples to embrace as a result of his teachings? What caused the early church to adopt a hierarchical structure and lose sight of Jesus’ egalitarian teachings after his death? Is the Church of Today ready for an extreme makeover? If so, what organizational ‘dress’ will the Church of Tomorrow choose to wear?
