Why are churches Centralized?
To understand this we have to understand what is Centralization?
A centralized organization can be defined as a hierarchy decision-making structure where most if not all decisions and processes are handled strictly at the top or the executive level. Managers and employees lower in the chain of command are limited in the decision-making processes and can rarely implement new processes that veer “off course” without approval.
But, another side of the organizational spectrum you will find an organization that is operated based on a decentralization processes or rather a group that is operated on delegation of decision-making powers and flexible processes. In simple terms, all can have assigned tasks to manage and all are required to have open communication.
The question “Why are churches Centralized” although is the most pertinent, it really is not the most relevant. The main question rather should be this: Can we in this day and time run a decentralized church as they did in the book of Acts?
This website is a part of a growing group of Christians, who believe that a decentralized church can function and heartily flourish in this day.
