Beyond Denominations,The networked Church

Many people see an episcopal structure in Scripture of deacons, elders, pastors and bishops governed by apostles in a strict hierarchy. There is a lot wrong with this view as I will show and I think that it may have arisen in part because up until now we have lacked the terminology to describe or model networks. To describe an apostle as a “hub” and a local church as a “node” would have made little sense until the Information technology revolution made networking terms common parlance. We simply haven’t has the mental models to fit these terms into a non-hierarchical structure. Our only main alternative has been “democracy” and congregational government which is still denominational and hierarchical and to my mind just as bad as an episcopal structure.
