Guest post by Jim Tomberlin for Outreach Magazine Emerging trends from a dynamic movement in its third decade. When I started down the multisite path as a senior pastor in Colorado in the 1990s, multisite was a radical idea.

These mergers are more mission-driven and future-focused as opposed to the failed mergers of the past that were more survival-driven and focused on preserving the past.  Mergers that have a multisite outcome report a higher success rate and satisfaction factor than mergers that unite into one location. Every merger involves a lead church and a joining church. The merging of churches is a delicate dance where… More
