In the Q3 2018 edition of The Unstuck Church Report, we reported that close to one in five churches has gone multisite.
When you launch a campus, you replicate what you already are. While it can help you lead more people in your region to Christ, launching campuses must be done with an effective strategy and strong execution for it to really work.
Being a growing church is not enough. Multisite can become multistuck very quickly.
For a healthy foundation for launching campuses, you need to need to have good answers to these questions:
1. Is your team really ready to launch a campus?
As mentioned before, growth doesn’t necessarily mean you’re ready to launch another campus. It requires a strong group of staff and volunteer leaders, ready to implement well-thought out systems and strategies.
2. How will you build a thriving launch team?
Though there are many different ways to design a multisite model, not all are equally effective. We’ve found adhering to certain principles helps most churches launch strong.
