The Multisite Launch Process


A healthy multisite strategy can help you leverage this momentum you’ve got—to expand into new places and reach more people with the love of Jesus the way your church has been uniquely called to do it.

The unknowns around going multisite can create anxiety.

After all, you don't know what you don't know. You’re doing due diligence. You want to avoid costly mistakes.

But maybe you’re still not confident you can do this without creating chaos in the healthy church you’re leading—and that's normal. Thankfully, there IS a way to harness that momentum and replicate for continued health and growth.

We’ve built a clear, proven process for healthy, growing churches to expand with predictable success:

Readiness Assessment

Gain knowledge. Begin with eyes wide open.

Multisite Planning

Develop a clear action plan to become a multisite church.

Staffing & Structure

Clarify how your staffing structure will change as you become a multisite church.

Campus Launch

Put the plan into action and launch your first campus, with coaching every step of the way.

  • We've seen it time and time again.

    It happens when churches launch a new campus:

    Before they're ready

    With too few people or too tight of a timeline.

  • In the wrong location

    Too close to the sending location—or too far away.

    With the wrong campus pastor.

    The wrong gifts/skills, lack of alignment or underpreparedness.

  • With unrealistic expectations.

    About the size of the launch. The timeline. The amount of work that goes into this.

    With the wrong staff.

    Too many—or too few—campus staffers at launch.

  • Without a strong financial plan.

    A realistic plan for supporting the church to self-sustainability.

    With too few volunteers.

    Underestimating the needed size of launch team, and failing to recruit to backfill positions at the sending location.

We've been where you are right now.

Our ministry consultants have served in large, growing churches as they embarked on multisite for the first time.

In the decades since, we’ve served as strategic advisors and guides for hundreds of multisite churches. We have 100+ combined years of experience leading thriving multisite churches.

Through this process you will gain…

A unified team, energized to become one church in multiple locations.
A shared, clear understanding of your church’s approach to multisite ministry.
Clear expectations for ministry metrics at the new campus, and at the original campus after launch.
Accountability and coaching for your senior leaders all the way through your campus launch.
A comprehensive, customized campus launch plan, with structure and systems to help you execute.
Clear decision rights between campus and central.

Campus Launch

In this phase you put the plan into action and launch your first campus.

The Unstuck Group helped reverse our plateau.

'We found ourselves at a place where we knew something wasn't quite right but we couldn't quite put our finger on it. We didn't want to wait until we got really stuck.'

A successful campus launch that reaches more new people with the Gospel from Day 1.

A strong campus team, with the right campus pastor and number of support staff.

A strong central team, with the right leaders in the right seats, empowered to implement the plan and evaluate future expansion opportunities.

A campus financial model to move the new location towards self-sustainability.

Six months after engaging our team for church consulting, 9 out of 10 pastors recommend us to another church-because they are seeing real results.


"The talks around communication, decision making and staff structure were so defining and helpful that we now know they may have saved our second location a painful experience or possibly even not making it. It's going really well and our processes in these areas are actually working."

Shayne O'Brien

Rockpointe Church


"Our big question was how does multisite impact the staff and how we lead together, relate to each other, and make ministry decisions going forward. Our #1 win for the strategic planning process is that we were given the right tools, to make the right decisions, at the right times!"
