A Look Behind the Scenes of America’s Largest Church

September 20, 2016

By Wade Burnett Earlier this year Jim Tomberlin and I joined one of the members of our consulting team, Kevin Penry, at Life.Church, the largest church in America.

Video Sermon Delivery Over the Internet

August 23, 2016

Now nearly three decades old, the multisite church model has proven it’s not a passing fad. But it’s changed a lot in that time, and its next phase will look nothing like its first. Today’s multisite church includes hybrid variations of the traditional one-church-in-multiple-locations model, often incorporating planting as part of a church’s multiplication strategy. These new approaches call for new skill sets and structures to support rapid growth and change. But where do you go for answers to the hard questions that surface in the midst of… More

"Jim Tomberlin was a huge asset to us during our recent move to multisite. His experience and expertise helped us navigate our staff and church through a church merger and greatly assisted us in the union of two churches. I highly recommend Jim to anyone prayerfully considering either mergers or multisite churches."

"Jim came along side Celebration Church from the very beginning of our multi-site journey. His insight, strategy, and understanding of what it takes to be a healthy church was huge to us as we began this new journey. Since partnering with Jim, we’ve gone from one church meeting in a single location, to five campuses meeting throughout Wisconsin."
