Multisite Next Decade – Mergers

August 15, 2012

Next up in recapping our “cafe sessions,” we have the opportunity to listen to Jim Tomberlin.  Jim is the co-author of “Better Together:  Making Church Mergers Work” and a leader in the multisite movement.  Although mergers have long been thought of as counter-productive, Jim offers up new data that suggests it is the greatest asset to growing churches looking to expand their reach into the community.  Join me as we hear from Jim…

1.  80% of all churches are at a plateau, dead or dying.  20% need more space.

2.  Mergers are a great option for growing churches to fast track their multisite initiatives.
