Going multisite can expand your ministry, reach new people, and have a positive impact on multiple communities. It can also wreck your church.
Just a few years ago, multisite was one strategy churches considered for reaching more people. Now it seems thestandard strategy for every church. It’s rare anymore that I come into contact with a pastor of 800+ who isn’t already thinking about new campuses.
It’s great to dream about taking the gospel into new communities. In fact, at The Unstuck Group we often encourage churches to consider multisite as a next step. At the same time, we’ve also seen many churches become stuck as a result of going multisite. It wasn’t that the strategy was wrong for their church. They just didn’t take the right steps to prepare ahead of time.
I think you should think twice before launching another campus.
