If your church is considering launching a multisite campus, this pre-seminar workshop is for you! Led by Rich Birch, an early multisite church pioneer who’s been in the driver’s seat for 13 launches, will share best practices for readying your church for launch. During this session, we’ll cover critical questions every church needs to wrestle before launching your first (or next) campus, including:
- What factors need to be present to move forward with a launch?
- How are prevailing multisite churches structuring for multiplication?
- Discover the key success for healthy launches.
- Why do some churches get stuck at 3 locations but others move to 5+?
This pre-seminar workshop is ideal for the Executive Pastor of a church looking to start their multisite journey. If you’ve already launched a campus or two, this workshop will help you as you prepare to launch your future locations.
Rich has served on the senior leadership teams of three innovative and fast-growing churches. He brings his signature “uber practical” style to this workshop. Also, he has interviewed over 200 church leaders through his podcast, unSeminary, which gives him a unique vantage point when offering help to Executive Pastors.
Rich has been involved in church leadership for over 20 years. He led in one of the first multisite churches in North America, The Meeting House in Toronto, which became the leading multisite church in Canada with over 4,500 people in six locations (today they are seventeen locations with somewhere over 6,000 people attending). In addition, he served on the leadership team of Connexus Community Church in Ontario, a North Point Community Church Strategic Partner.
For seven years he served as a part of the four member Lead Team at Liquid Church in the Manhattan-facing communities of New Jersey. In his time with the church, it grew from one campus to six and attendance grew to over 3,500 people.
He has a dual vocational background that uniquely positions him for serving churches to multiply impact. While in the marketplace, Rich founded a dot-com with two partners in the late 90’s that worked to increase value for media firms and internet service providers. He speaks at conferences like Orange, WFX and various regional multisite church events—and is a featured writer on Auxano’s Vision Room, ChurchLeaders.com and MinistryBriefing.
Rich’s first book, Unreasonable Churches: 10 Churches Who Zagged When Others Zigged and Saw More Impact Because of It, is an Amazon bestseller in the Church Leadership category. It’s designed to help church leaders think a new thought and take new risks in impacting their community. His second book is Church Growth Flywheel, where he pulled together his own hard-fought experience leading within one of the fastest growing churches in the country, as well as over 200 interviews with church leaders from prevailing churches.
