When it’s time for your church to start considering big decisions, whether launching a new ministry, expanding leadership, or going multisite, it is imperative that God take the lead. What does that look like in practice? Church administrators, this one’s for you.
Justin Steinhart, Pastor of Administration at Mill City Church, has been there for many changes, including the move to multisite. On a recent ECFA podcast, Justin shared with us a few takeaways for churches on the cusp of this decision.
- Going multisite will expose your weaknesses as a church. It will push staff, team, and leaders beyond their comfort zones, and will require more work and responsibility.
- Foster a pipeline of skilled and capable leaders. People must be continually trained and developed. Growth tracks and programs will help individuals in your ministry become talented, homegrown leaders ready to take the next step.
- Investigate your church culture. How would you define the culture of your church? Ask yourself: is this something that is being continually cultivated and producing fruit?
