Multi-Site Workshop for Sr Pastors

Learn more at

This half-day workshop will focus on Sr. Pastors and Site/Campus pastors who are discerning a call to, or in the process of, launching a second site from their first campus. 
MULTI-SITE is a nation-wide training event….and morale booster! Learn how you, the Sr. Pastor, (along with your site/campus pastor) can take the proper steps to ensure a wonderful launch celebrated by both veterans and newcomers. See the joy on the faces of those coming to the new campus, who would have never darkened the doors of the main campus and experience the satisfaction of expanding the footprint of your church beyond its current site. 
If you’re attempting this Kingdom event, you won’t want to miss this workshop! Why? Because most churches attempting to do this launch impulsively and prematurely, creating confusion within the main campus and demoralizing the second site members. The excitement of the new site wears off quickly, and if certain areas are not addressed, it stalls and begins a downward spiral. 
This workshop will frame the questions you need to ask and answer before taking those first steps. It will then give you the sequence code for launching a new site with success and celebration.
