Such usage implied that the founders of the COGIC and other denominations initially envisioned a church organized in parallel structures of both male and female overseers. (18) The adoption of the terminology associated with episcopally governed churches reflected both the Baptist roots of their leadership and a Presbyterian tendency toward "more or less sharing power between the laity and the clergy." (19) Gilkes has determined that these black church women transformed their autonomy into a form of power best described as "influence," and "created a pluralist political structure in an episcopally governed church where pluralism was never intended." (20) This autonomous, parallel structure more closely resembled the dual sex political systems characteristic of some West African societies than the patriarchal episcopal polities or European origin.

Charismatic congregations are about the same size as those of non-charismatic Protestant churches. In addition to the ministers who received their Pentecostal experience at Azusa Street, there were thousands of others who were indirectly influenced by the revival in Los Angeles. Reports were coming in from Topeka, Houston, and the Welsh Revivals. For this reason, the laity are obliged to examine this primarily lay movement of Catholic Pentecostalism with great care. In 1865, an independent Methodist minister William Booth (1829-1912), founded the Salvation Army, which to this day carries out evangelistic and social work across the globe.

People often come from a variety of churches where they are active in the more traditional forms of worship and service. In Chuck Smith's words, the disagreement was an amicable one and the two "agreed to disagree" and, in 1982, Wimber removed himself and his Yorba Linda congregation from the Calvary Chapel fold. Whichever form suits you best, you should notice almost immediately that your awareness expands.

It is therefore safe to conclude that the vast majority of the 13.7 million Evangelicals in Ethiopia – that is 18.6% of the population – are part of a Pentecostal/Charismatic network. Consequently, between the years 1890 and 1900, twenty-three holiness denominations were founded.
