Wanna read a book that gives an overview of what happens when churches begin operating by a man-made business model rather than an inspired Word of God? If you answered yes, then read Zondervan’s A Multi-Site Road Trip by Geoff Surratt, Greg Ligon, & Warren Bird.

This book is an excellent start for anyone considering developing a site church model. I like that it provides practical elements as well as theory. It does not cover methodologies of contextualization, though it does present multiple models.

Straight forward. Well outlined. A solid rationale for franchising the local church. Surratt and his team did a fine job of covering the basic philosophy of multi-site, and then got down to the practical stuff that we were all wondering about.

Lessons:

Take time to identify the nonnegotiable DNA
Take time to list best practices
Take time to find the best campus pastor
Launch with sufficient energy/money/people to raise the likelihood of success

I read this book because of our present situation. The book deals mostly with mega-style churches. For an average church I didn't find it that helpful. A more helpful book for me was Becoming One, Merging Churches Together

I had found it useful and rick in content and experiences. I do highly recommended for planters or churches with a heart for evangelism. The best way to reach the world is planting new and healthy churches
Derek
A good and basic book on multi-site ministry looking at many different situations and possibilities. A good starter book in helping you address the different questions and situations in this unique ministry.
Andrew
This is a great primer if your church is headed towards, or just starting, a multi-site ministry. Lots of good ideas in here.
