Microprogramming: Yoido Church is not
a program base design church.
The entire church participates in the fourfold ministry pattern of worship,
prayer meeting, ministry visitation and cell on weekdays; other ministries are
large in number by Western standards but are a minuscule fraction of the total
membership at Yoido Church. For example, fifteen hundred persons participate in
twelve adult choirs; each sings in one service a week, but this number is
statistically insignificant compared to the 12,000 present in the main
sanctuary at worship.
For the original description of the Program Base Design paradigm for the traditional church, see Neighbour, Where Do We Go, 38-92.
