Multisite

One church in multiple locations

How can a Multisite approach help you?

A multisite church is one church in multiple locations. Each location shares a common vision and mission. This is different than church planting, in that a church plant is a brand new, autonomous church with its own vision and mission. The leadership gifts needed for each expression are very different and we’ve designed our process to help identify and support potential campus pastors and churches.

What We Offer

Free Multisite Pre and Post Launch Coaching
Meet regularly with a coach throughout the discernment, planning, execution, and evaluation of the process. During these meetings, your coach will spell out the tensions and roadblocks you may face as you launch your site, as well as provide resources to assist you along the way.

Free Care and Coaching for Campus Pastors
Being a campus pastor comes with it’s own sets of difficulties that can often be overcome with encouragement and accountability from an outside source. Our Multisite Team offers pastoral care and coaching specific to the concerns of a campus pastor.

Free On-site Visits
Our Multisite Team is available for on-site visits before, during, or after the launch of your new site. Having an experienced leader attend your first launch service can be very helpful. Our team can often identify potential problems and suggest solutions on the spot during launch weekends.
