Chris Bower

Church Planter in Canyon City, CO

"I have been involved in church planting in some way or another for about 20 years. I'm in the first year of starting a new plant, am fully-funded for the first few years, but am considering bivocational after that because of cultural shifts and past wounds that are making current generations hesitant to give. The bivocational question is more pertinent than ever, and that makes this course a must—even if not for you personally, at least for the future of those you are mentoring."

Chris Fedorcek

Executive Pastor at City Light Church in Ocala, FL

"New Churches beautifully blends experience, research and practical application to churches looking to move toward multi-site. This module is a must watch for any pastoral, executive and leadership team looking to expand."

Tanys Mosher

Pastoral Assistant at Southgate Church, Kemptville, Ontario, Canada

"We are launching our first campus this fall, and the Moving Toward Multisite course is a goldmine of knowledge and practical teaching all in one place. It is a comprehensive resource that has helped us create a clear pathway and timeline, and it has us excited for the things to come. Thank you New Churches!"

Paul Lasso

Preaching Pastor at Brainerd Baptist Church, Chatanooga, TN

"Kingdom expansion is always exciting for a church, and multisite can be an exciting, but challenging, kingdom effort. This course is not only encouraging but exceptionally helpful. That the information is coming from practitioners and not just theorists makes it even more valuable. We are glad to highly recommend these resources."

Sean Blitzer

Lead Pastor at Monmouth Christian Church, Monmouth, OR

"You don't know what you don't know about multisite, but Geoff Surratt helped us know what we didn't know. The easily digestible modules helped us ask the right questions as we are developing our unique multisite roadmap."
