We’d Like Your Opinion on Mergers

October 14, 2019

Guest Post, by Tony Morgan

What are your thoughts on church mergers? 

If you have been involved in a Protestant church merger—or if you think you might be—would you be willing to share?

My team at The Unstuck Group is partnering with Jim Tomberlin (our new team member), Warren Bird and Leadership Network to host a survey to learn more about your perspective on this ministry strategy. 

Already, more than 500 churches have participated. We’re hoping to get to 1,000 and make this the most comprehensive research project on church mergers that we know of.

By participating, you’ll be among the first to receive a free executive summary of our findings. And after you complete the survey, we will sent you two really great resources.

We’re excited about what we’re going to find out. The survey is closing October 31st. It takes just about 12 minutes to complete.  

We’d love for you to be a part of it.

"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."

Senior Pastor, Cornerstone Church

"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."


"Not only did he bring a depth of knowledge, insight and wisdom but he also helped to bring clarity to our strategy which will keep us healthy and growing well into the future. Jim brought to our team a pastor’s heart with a strategist’s mind for how to understand church growth through multisites."


"Jim is one of the country’s leading thinkers on the multi-site movement."

Craig Groeschel – Lead Pastor

"If you’re planning to go multisite and want someone to walk you through implementing your strategy successfully you’ll want to connect with Jim…you won’t be disappointed."
