Change in Power Structure in Chicago 
19th-Mar-2006 10:41 pm

“Times of transition are difficult. Changes in principles and styles of leadership affect all supporting members. As roles are defined and redefined, it is easy for anyone to feel unappreciated or ignored. Our church is experiencing this as we reorganize from a fellowship-oriented to a campus-oriented approach. During such times anyone can struggle with feelings of alienation which give rise to doubt…

…Jesus wants us to see that God is working according to the Scriptures. This is the best medicine to help us overcome doubt. To be quite honest, I have been troubled from time to time over the changes we are making. I don’t change easily. It took one year for me to adjust to having our main worship service at 11:00 a.m. instead of 3:00 p.m. So I kept saying, “Good afternoon” when it was really morning. Recently, I felt my head was spinning with change.”

Ok, I understand. But I would not call it "de-centralization", since all campus leaders ("coordinators") will probably still report to John Jun. In a way, UBF is even more centralized now. In the past, Korea and USA had been somewhat idependent UBFs (though Lee of course tried to control Korea as well). But now the power is much more centralized in the hands of John Jun. The only difference is that th centralization will be less direct, i.e. the already existing pyramid will get an extra layer. So overall, it is not a big change, and it seems to only effect Chicago UBF, not the rest of UBF which always had that extra layer.
