The Multi-Site Debate

A few weeks ago we talked about the beauty of multi-site churches and the unique role of campus pastor. I’m still wanting to keep this discussion alive on this blog and will eventually build up to a new series of posts on this theme.

The Gospel Coalition recently released this fascinating conversation with Mark Dever, Mark Driscoll, and James MacDonald regarding multi-site church. Both Driscoll and MacDonald are proponents of multi-site churches utilizing video preaching. Dever is not.

Check out the video and share your thoughts.

  1. Greg, thanks for posting this. Some great points are brought up. As part of a great Global Multi-site church (Celebration Church of Jacksonville)…I'm definitely for multi-sites. However, I can see that these questions are valid and need to be addressed in order for the church to move forward in a healthy manner. The role of a campus pastor is absolutely different when it comes to speaking roles and probably takes a certain "type" of person to pull it off for a long period of time. However, I feel that multi-sites give a great opportunity for leaders of various skill sets (as mentioned in the video). The bottom line is it all falls on the shoulders of the "lead pastor" and their vision. I think it's okay for multi-sites to look different and it's okay for people to not agree with them! Appreciate you man!!!
