This chapter discusses the growing diversity of the virtual ekklesia as it moved onto the World Wide Web between 1996 and 2000. As the movement adapted, the new medium exacerbated an existing tension between the need to express individual authority and the need to engage others in deliberation. As a wide range of individuals experimented with different ways to mediate this tension, Marilyn Agee's Bible Prophecy Corner website prefigured the most robust deployment of Internet media by individuals in the movement today. Even before the advent of new software that would allow the World Wide Web to easily integrate user-produced content into existing Web pages, Agee created her own sort of proto-blog using simple HTML computer coding. After 2001, the form of Marilyn's website suggested it would become the most common sort of site used for ritual deliberation in the movement.
