CFTROU 0087: Multisite Church for the Rest of Us – The Jimmy Scroggins Story

This season we are diving into the world of multisite churches. Our Lead Pastor, Jimmy Scroggins, is a pioneer and well-versed in the multisite movement. He shares the lessons he has learned along the way to building the Family Church Network. He explains the framework and the Biblical foundation involved with developing a “network of neighborhood churches.” He credits God for putting important people in his life that mentored him and equipped him with a robust knowledge base. We also listen to him as explains having to “build the plane as we fly it” at times; in the spirit of resourcefulness and having faith that God will move through the efforts that Pastor Jimmy and his leaders put forth.

Key Points:

  • Pastor Jimmy’s early experiences of multisite ideas and planting churches.
  • The people who were integral in his life as he learned how to do multisite; and the lessons he had to figure out on his own.
  • Why Pastor Jimmy chose to do multisite and chose live preaching as his model.
  • The importance of finding a capable and willing leader to lead the new site.
  • Why Pastor Jimmy made the choice to move to West Palm Beach.
  • What’s coming up in our next episode and the rest of this season!
