Many churches come to a point in their journey where they have to answer questions regarding growth and expansion. This often leads to tiresome building campaigns, heated discussion about missional versus attractional models of ministry, and the like. However, a closer look at the multi-site movement will help answer many of the questions you may have.
A multi-site ministry is one church meeting in several locations while sharing a common vision, budget, resources, leadership structure and strategy. Most importantly, the multi-site movement reminds us that we are truly better together and reaches a new generation of church-goers who desire to worship in their home communities. Its exponential growth in recent years reflects today's attempt to offer effective ministry in places our local ministries previously lacked the ability to reach.
There are several reasons to consider an expedition into multi-site ministry. In Multi-Site Ministry: Expanding the Reach, Ken Nash explores the primary reasons why multi-site is both biblical and preferable.
