Latest estimates from Leadership Network suggest that over 8,000 churches in America have adopted a multisite approach. Yet based on our experience, we expect very few churches would say they have perfected it. Instead, many are faced with a set of challenges they never anticipated. The common problem is this:
When a church goes multisite, small cracks in its strategy become large gaps in its ministry.
If a church is a little fuzzy on its discipleship pathway, going multisite will turn it into a maze. Eventually, people aren’t sure what’s important or how to get involved.
If a staff structure is a little unclear, going multisite will make reporting structures completely confused. It’s only a matter of time before tension and conflict ruin a healthy culture.
If a team occasionally struggles to communicate, going multisite will lead to constant breakdowns. Before long, everyone feels uninformed and uninspired.
If the culture of the church isn’t defined, going multisite will only water it down further. After a while, each campus might as well be its own church.
You might know this because you’ve experienced it first hand. Or maybe you’ve heard stories from other church leaders. In either case, we want to help your church avoid these challenges and reach more people through more locations.
