On Super Bowl Sunday Christ Church Oak Brook in the western suburbs of Chicago, launched their first multisite “branch” in Downers Grove, IL, about twenty minutes from their Oak Brook location. Founded in 1965, Christ Church is a highly respected church known for its strong teaching ministry under senior pastor Dan Meyer, its quality ministries and a strikingly beautiful sanctuary.

Christ Church Esplanade launched with core team of 200 people. Nearly 600 people gathered for their first multisite service in Downers Grove and have settled in with weekly attendance under 300. They utilized social media, direct mail, and yard signage as part of the roll out. 

Here is a video Christ Church ran for three months in local theaters leading up to the grand opening.
