Unleash Debrief - Multi-Site Strategy

I've decided to share my notes on the multi-site strategy of NewSpring as is from the conference. I'll share them in two parts since it is quite lengthy. These notes create more questions than answers, but are the foundation upon which Grace will begin to pray and prepare for multi-site ministry as we move forward in our 5 year vision plan.

Multi-Site Strategy
March 12, 2009

Speaker: Tony Morgan (Chief Strategic Officer of NewSpring Church)

Not sure of launch date (still learning how best to do this with long distance campus’ like Florence and now Columbia.

Why NewSpring go the route of Multi-Site?

Acts 1:8 (A Gospel Decision)

Financially Responsible (A Stewardship Decision)

Reduces Staffing Costs/Hires

Gets a gifted communicator in front of more people

Connecting People (People were driving long distances to attend one weekend service on Anderson Campus and were not connected apart from that – thus launch of Greenville campus)
