Emerging trends for the multisite church movement, which now includes at least 8,000 sites throughout the U.S., include the findings that churches with multiple locations grow faster, have more lay-person participation, and reach more new believers than single-site churches, according to a study by the Leadership Network.

"More churches will continue to explore multisites, not as a tool for growth but as a means of taking the church to more people and taking a healthy church and reproducing it in other places," said Warren Bird, Director of Research and Intellectual Capital Development for Leadership Network, during a web seminar Wednesday.

Got to love feel-good, self-contradictory statements.

It would seem that Christ's Pattern for His Church is not the multisite one. Lady and gentlemen, I like the way you covered the topic.

Earlier in this thread I described a church where their additional site was in my opinion a positive, but all too often it might be as you say: a brand with different flavors or even franchise to share that 'healthy'ness. My main concern is Christian accountability with members bouncing around site to site seduced by which location tickles their ears

Interesting.....seems like I've seen this model before. Oh yeah, in the Bible! Jesus is the head of the church and we just meet in different geographical locations while we are here on Earth.

Though Im sure in many cases there will be room for critique for this model, I find this an interesting subject. I personally know of one multi site church that I agree with. Its a church in an affluent part of town that has set up a satellite location in an underserved community. It offers the main location ministry, evangelical and charitable opportunities while improving a nearby community.
