Launching multiple sites has been a top “go to” strategy for church expansion for three decades. Of the 70 multi-site churches that have fielded the REVEAL for Church survey, a large percentage fall into the more spiritually vibrant archetypes. But while many multi-site strategies have been great successes, there have been failures along the way. In this episode, we examine what REVEAL data show about the spiritual vibrancy of multi-site churches and talk with Jim Tomberlin about strategies for successful expansion into multiple campuses. Jim has launched many multi-site congregations and is the founder of a consulting organization called Multisite Solutions.
About 7% of the churches in the REVEAL database are multicultural churches, with at least 20% of congregants being of diverse ethnicities. These churches are among the most spiritually vibrant of the churches who have taken the survey. In this episode, we share the impressive statistics that show the vibrancy of multicultural churches and speak with Albert Tate, founding pastor of Fellowship Monrovia Church in California, which is a thriving multi-ethnic, multi-generational congregation.
