Launching Your First Multisite Campus? Don’t Crash and Burn

July 19, 2016

You’ve seen the photos and videos. For years a team has designed a new rocket and rolls it out there to the launch pad. After careful planning, flawless engineering and good weather, the countdown begins.

The launch controller counts it down to lift off and with a loud roar and brilliant flames up goes the rocket.

Seconds or even minutes later, right when the rocket is almost out of camera sight either the ship explodes or is detonated by the controller because something had gone wrong. It is a spectacular, but very costly fireworks display.

At least it was an unmanned rocket and no one was killed.

But the cost in terms of time, effort, and capital resources lost is astronomical.

In the short history of the multisite movement we have seen our fair share of spectacular failures. Sites have been selected, leaders chosen, teams formed. Then advertising and marketing makes a big effort to get new people committed to the new effort.

Months later, the doors quietly close to no fanfare. It may not be as spectacular as a rocket explosion, but the damage to leaders, congregants, not to mention the financial costs linger. This makes it harder to try again.

But here’s some good news for you. Leadership Network is launching a group that will help your first campus soar!  Over the last 15 years, Leadership Network has helped hundreds of churches launch their first campus or strengthen their existing multisite campuses.
