Rich Birch is the creator of the unSeminary church resource.  Rich and I have been pioneering the multisite journey together for nearly 20 years. We have launched or coached dozens of campus launches. We will be co-teaching the Multisite Lab @ ExpoSoCal this October 4-5 in Los Angeles. Here is a summary of some of Rich’s multisite learnings…

  • The size and health of your launch core is the critical success factor.
  • Yes, you can launch too quickly.
  • Campus Pastors are hard to find … but are most likely found within.
  • It’s not about video-driven campuses.
  • Student ministry is hard in multisite.
  • It’s way more financially efficient.
  • Think Regional not National.
  • Nail it before you scale it.
  • Teaching is the biggest “non-issue” long term.
  • Don’t launch a campus but launch a system for launching campuses.
  • Small towns are the horizon for multisite.
  • There is no better way to drive engagement at your church than launching new locations.
  • Fall is the best time to launch new campuses.
  • The size and health of your launch core is the critical success factor.
