The 2017 ALIGNMENT CONFERENCE is for senior pastors and executive pastors who are currently leading a multisite church or considering an expansion strategy, as well as elders and ministry leaders of churches exploring potential growth models. It’s for church leaders wrestling with the big questions about multiplying ministry impact.
How do we avoid competition for resources and attention between our campuses?
Will going multisite help us reach more people for Christ, or simply multiply our problems?
Am I the right kind of senior pastor to oversee multiple locations and cultivate campus pastors?
What systems and processes will we need to develop to launch and operate multiple locations?
What can I learn from other pastors and leaders who are multiplying effectively?
How do we find new facilities and the necessary funding to launch multiple sites?
How can we create a pipeline of new leaders in order to multiply effectively?
Do multisite churches feel too much like a franchise, especially to Millennials?
What if I don’t want to multiply? Are there still valuable lessons from this movement that I can apply to my one church in one location?
Will we be spreading our staff and resources too thin if we try to multiply?
