Are Microsites in Your Future?

April 8, 2017

A frequent question emerging from successful multisite churches is “how can we leverage our multisite model to go further, faster and cheaper?” The answer is go smaller–go microsite.

Centuries ago, wind-powered ships required months to make the journey, and then steamboats did it in weeks. Propeller planes measured their journey in days, and today, jets schedule their half-globe transit in hours.
