    I don’t like that they are dying. But I sure hope none of those fits our Church.

    Denominations are “changing”. Into what is yet unknown. Networking continues to fracture doctrinal and hierarchical unity. But denominations still serve certain purposes, some good… some bad.

    Of course networking cultivates unity. But it cultivates unity across and outside of denominational lines which fractures the narrow minded focus that by nature exists in any denomination.

    That in turn weakens or changes the denomination like the tv or cell phone social media is changing the world.

      Simple English. Pastors are not primarily networking with their denomination. This results in outside forces having greater and/or primary influence doctrinally and practically. Thus, denominations are changing.

      I disagree In AG we require our pastors to network with churches within the denomination, report to headquarters and submit to leadership network guidelines like Resolution 16 AG started mainly as a network for pastors to freely fellowship within the denomination

      Troy Day Perhaps in your “network” it is required but if you would open your eyes you would see a whole lot of “outside the denomination” networking going on.

      And the AG did not start as a network. It started as a fellowship of ministers who committed to a simple doctrinal statement.

    Why Multisite Churches Get Stuck?

    by ChurchInfluence.Com on June 22, 2015 in churchinfluence.com
    Most of the 8,000-plus multisite churches in the United States are stuck at one or two additional campuses because they don’t know how (or aren’t willing) to make the organizational changes necessary to fully deliver their church to multiple locations. The majority of multisite churches are still functioning like a mono-site church with campuses instead of as a church of campuses. Very few multisite churches get beyond three campuses. Those that do figure out how to reproduce their ministry best practices and restructure organizationally.

    Here are some characteristics of churches that are delivering their church well across multiple campuses:

    Four or more geographical campuses
    A multisite director on the senior leadership team
    At least 50 percent of total church attendance beyond the original campus
    Designated central staff that supports all the campuses
    A designated campus pastor at the original campus who is not the senior pastor
    Multisite campuses launching campuses
    Empowered local campus pastors who are unquestionably committed to the mission, vision, values and strategy of the sending church
    Multisiting is all about figuring out how to deliver your church to the peopl
