Fueled by a desire to reach people for Christ, a revolution is underway. Churches are growing beyond the limitations of a single service in one building. Expanding the traditional model, they are embracing the concept of one church with more than one site: multiple congregations sharing a common vision, budget, leadership, and board. Drawing from the examples of churches nationwide, The Multi-Site Church Revolution shows what healthy multi-site churches look like and what motivates congregations to make the change. Discover how your church can: • cast a vision for change • ensure a successful DNA transfer (vision and core values) to its new site • develop new leaders • fund new sites • adapt to structure and staffing change • use technology to support your worship services
you’ll identify the reasons churches succeed and how they overcome common snags. The Multi-Site Church Revolution offers guidance, insights, and specific action steps as well as appendixes with practical leadership resources and self-diagnostic tools.

"The Multi-Site Church Revolution: Being One Church in Many Locations" is a very valuable book for churches that want to expand beyond their own location, are growing out of their building, or want to reach a new population of people. "A multi-site church is one church meeting in multiple locations... [it] shares a common vision, budget, leadership, and board."
One the main reasons to consider opening a multi-site church is from research that shows that the people willing to drive thirty plus minutes to a worship service rarely invite their friends and neighbors to church, participate in midweek activities and small group ministry, volunteer to serve, nor involve their children in church. A multi-site church brings the resources of a larger church closer to where people live and serve, often with an attractive smaller church atmosphere.
For churches considering opening a new campus, the authors of "Multi-site" give a history of the development of the multi-site...
Overall I think this was a very good presentation of the multi site church concept. However, it did seem largely one sided in that it primarily focused on the benefits of the multi site concept while largely ignoring the drawbacks. The author clearly is a proponent of the concept, seemingly to the degree of believing that most churches should be doing this. I would have preferred a more balanced approach. Overall, a good, informational book but not great.
Interesting read on the multi-site perspective as a sort of reference guide to the basics of it. Insiteful, but revolutionairy is too much honor. The tips and tricks and pittfalls mentioned are useful, but with a little bit of logical thinking you could get pretty much in the same direction.
