Lead an Effective Multisite Church 

We believe a healthy multisite strategy can help you lead more people in your region to Christ.

Multisite works best when healthy, growing churches expand into new locations to reach more people and have a greater Kingdom impact.

You replicate who you already are. 

Without a clear strategy in four key areas, going multisite can get a church multistuck.

  1. Ministry Strategy: How do we disciple people?

  2. Multisite Strategy: How do we operate as one church in different communities?

  3. Expansion Strategy: How do we optimally launch a new campus?

  4. Execution Strategy: How do we put this plan into place?

Our team has 100+ years of combined experience leading in effective multisite churches. We can guide you through the process of clarifying your organization-wide ministry strategy, and how it can be replicated effectively across campuses. We do that in four phases.

What You Can Expect

During the planning process, we specifically focus on guiding you through these aspects of multisite strategy:

Confirming the discipleship path that you intend to replicate

Establishing a ministry model for each location

Determining the teaching model (video vs. live teachers)

Clarifying decision rights (campus vs. central)

Planning central support resources

Identifying future locations

Developing a launch plan for future campuses

Setting an optimal schedule for launching new campuses

Developing a candidate profile for the campus pastor role

Defining success for new campuses

Outlining initial staff and volunteer leadership teams

Establishing financial targets for new campuses

Building an action plan for next steps

Here’s how some of the churches we’ve served describe the experience.

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.

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!

Our lack of a clearly defined system of operating for our campuses was causing frustration at both the central and campus level. Now people don’t just see a dream—they see a path to achieving those dreams with God’s help.

We’re passionate about helping churches lead more people in more places to a relationship with Jesus.

We’d love to start a conversation. We have experience serving multisite churches across the country: helping many clarify and structure a current multisite strategy, as well as launch for the first time or effectively navigate a church merger.
