A.J. Tomlinson’s political savvy and charisma helped him strengthen his hold on the Church of God, and pursue his dream of gathering his own particular “Israel”, God’s pentecostal people. Tomlinson sought to let worship flow freely while regulating structure (the systems of management and delivery). To do so, he would need to overcome the misgivings of his followers and associates, most of whom feared centralization and defended congregational sovereignty.
