Multisite Next Decade – Big Idea #1

July 11, 2012

As we continue to review the learnings of the Multisite Next Decade gathering, we turn to the first of a series of big ideas that surfaced as pioneering multisite churches gathered to explore what's next for the movement.  

To help frame the ideas for the gathered churches, each team was given this assignment – “There is a philanthropic venture capital company who is fascinated with the multisite church model and they want to invest $1M with a church who is really thinking differently about the future.  They are taking one minute videos as proposals for this grant.”

The first of the big ideas we will take a look at is centered around the concept of the potential for global impact.  In the following videos from New Life Community Church, Chicago and Christ Fellowship Church, Palm Beach Gardens, take a look at the beginnings of ideas that combine the multisite strategy with an understanding of the local church culture and a vision for reaching the world through cities and ethnic groups.  



New Life Community Church, Chicago

Key Concept – Take what is working in Chicago and transport it to major cities around the world.


Key Concept – Work through the diverse people groups of South Florida to establish campuses and campus leaders that can be sent around the world to impact their country of origin.
