Unit 2.18 Microinnovation


(paste here)

Microinnovation:  Emergent church theory advises continual innovation and reinvention.[1] Diffusion of innovation theory suggests this would exclude 84% of a given population. The focus of Yoido Church is not on continual innovation but faithful implementation of the Great Commission of Jesus Christ through the most effective discipleship system in the world.


Every member at Yoido participates in a fourfold ministry of worship, prayer meeting, ministry visitation (as a visitor or a recipient) and cell. Even the smallest American churches can provide this fourfold ministry pattern.
