A few years ago, my good friend Jim Tomberlin, co-author of Better Together (a book about healthy church mergers, 1 in 3 of which involves a multisite), wrote 125 Tips for Multisite Churches and Those Who Want To Be. The book contains several succinct and practical tips organized around the key components of navigating the process of going Multisite.
A number of findings surfaced; highlights include:
Going Multisite is not for every church. It will not turn around a sick or dying church, but it can be an instrument to extend a healthy one.
Multisite is not a growth engine, but it can be a vehicle for a growing church.
Multisite is not a fad to jump on, but it has become a proven strategy to reproduce healthy, fruitful, growing churches.
