CFTROU 0185: How Family Church Does Multisite

In this episode, we discuss a trend among churches – moving from a megachurch model to a multisite model. We delve into why, at Family Church, we are committed to the multisite strategy. Our guests include Todd Gaston, Campus Pastor of Family Church North Stuart, Scott Crawford, Family Church Business Administrator and CFO, and Todd Thomas, Campus Pastor of Family Church Sherbrooke. Our Lead Pastor, Jimmy Scroggins, casts vision and discusses our multisite strategy, reasons for departure from this strategy, insights from our campus pastors, and what makes us a unified organization. We explore the benefits and challenges. Tune in now.
