Shaping a Church’s DNA through Multi-Site: An Interview with Living Hope’s John Bishop
John Bishop, pastor of the fast-growing Living Hope Church, Vancouver, WA, first started using multi-site as a vehicle to promote growth but came to realize that it had become a part of their church's DNA. Key to this process was John's role in learning to decentralize and release control so that he could focus on vision, leadership and teaching. Also interesting is the church's focus on “spontaneous baptisms” (at all their sites) as a central theme for life change.
