The multisite movement has progressed through some very identifiable seasons. When I started down the multisite path as a senior pastor in Colorado in the 1990s, multisite was a radical idea. In the first decade of the 21st century, multisite then became a cool idea among large, cutting-edge churches. Now, in the second decade of this century, multisite has become the mainstream idea among healthy, growing churches of all sizes.
What began as a radical idea has spawned a movement of more than five million people attending one of the 5,000-plus multisite churches across North America. More importantly, the multisite movement is not slowing down. This movement is comprised of non-denominational and denominational churches that gather in urban, suburban and rural communities.
