Rich Birch

Multisite & Church Merger Specialist

Rich is one of the early multisite church pioneers.

He was among the first people leading multisite churches in North America. He led the charge in helping The Meeting House in Toronto to become the leading multisite church in Canada with over 4,000 people
in 6 locations. (Today they are 13 locations with somewhere over 5,000 people attending.) In addition, he served on the leadership team of
Connexus Community Church in Ontario, a North Point Community Church Strategic Partner.

Currently he serves as Operations Pastor at Liquid Church in the
Manhattan facing suburbs of New Jersey.

His dual vocational background uniquely positions him for serving churches to multiply impact. While in the marketplace, he founded a dot-com with two partners in the late 90’s that worked to increase value for media firms and internet service providers.

He blogs regularly at unSeminary.com … where he provide free training for ministry leaders … stuff you wish they taught in serminary! Rich speaks at conferences like Orange, WFX and various regional multisite church events. He’s been a featured writer on Auxano’s Vision Room, ChurchLeaders.com and MinistryBriefing.

Rich is married to Christine and lives in Scotch Plains, NJ with their two kids and one dog.
