Centralized vs. De-Centralized Multisite Models: Which is Best?

Centralized vs. De-Centralized Multisite Models: Which is Best?

When churches experience growth, the multisite conversation often comes up. But that doesn’t mean the next step is always obvious. There are several different strategies for launching campuses.

As I mentioned in an Unstuck Church podcast episode, I still believe multisite is a great way to help churches reach more people and help them take their next steps towards Christ. In one of my recent multisite coaching networks, I asked Chris Surratt, who has served in two different multisite churches with very different strategies, to share some of his experience with centralized vs. de-centralized multisite models.

Check out the interview and a few highlights below.

In this conversation, we touch on:

  • Advantages/disadvantages of centralized vs. de-centralized multisite models

  • How the role of the campus pastor—and the type of leader needed to fill that role—changes depending on the model

We want to hear your thoughts on this topic. Join the conversation on social media by using the hashtag #unstuckchurch.
