I had found it useful and rich 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. As I moved into the first spanish translation under license with Harper Collins publisghing, Id found it as practical and sound as when it was published for the first time 10 years ago. Excellent tool to understand the change in contemporary churches. ...more

The book has four parts in total. Part three is worth the price of the book for church practitioners looking to explore and experiment the multi-site model for planting.

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 recollection of a cross-country trip to fifteen different multi-site churches across America, including Hawaii, is so full of the folly of man’s knowledge that there is, as expected, little room for Godly knowledge. Sure, there ...more

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.

Pragmatic, nuts and bolts book about the strategic planning necessary to use the the multi-site approach effectively.

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

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.

This is a great primer if your church is headed towards, or just starting, a multi-site ministry. Lots of good ideas in here.
