Multi-site Mania

How many times have you heard the slogan "one church, two locations" or some variant? I think some of the churches using this slogan actually think they are original and creative. This multi-site trend is concerning to me for a number of reasons but I'm trying to remaind open-minded. Some employ the multi-site model as a means for church planting. Share resources, train leaders, and eventually launch them off. Others seem to have other motives. I'm especially perplexed when a church starts a second campus in a community that already has Biblical churches instead of just sharing resources with those churches.
  • Here is a BLOG POST that questions the practicality of such giga-churches.
  • The Gospel Coalition guys have POSTED a helpful resource of links to many different perspectives on the multi-site trend.
