MultiChurch: Exploring the Future of Multisite

August 22, 2017

Now in its third decade, the multisite movement began as a radical idea to solve church facility restrictions and has now become a mainstream outreach strategy for all kinds of churches. Like any movement there have been various expressions, leaders and criticisms. The newest book on the multisite church movement comes out this fall and I highly recommend it. The authors of MultiChurch: Exploring the Future of Multisite have served this movement well by describing its evolution, naming its distinct expressions, addressing its criticisms and charting a course forward for a movement that is not slowing down but is continually morphing. Written by a seasoned multisite practitioner and a hands-on theologian, Brad House and Gregg Allison address the multiple… More

Is Your Next Multisite Campus Online?

August 8, 2017

Church Mergers Update

June 27, 2017

My first merger experience occurred when I was leading the multisite strategy at Willow Creek Community Church in the Chicago area. I was looking for a facility to launch our third multisite campus in the North Shore region of Chicago.  A church was meeting in a school that we had investigated as a potential site. The congregation was without a pastor and proposed merging as a solution to both our needs.  They needed a pastor and we needed a facility. I had never done a church merger. I did not know how to proceed. The few resources that talked about church mergers were not encouraging. Nevertheless, we pressed forward and had a successful merger that resulted in… More
