Episode 270: Dynamics of Starting a Fourth Site

When starting your fourth campus, your strategy may change, but your vision and values should stay the same. 

In Episode 270 of the NewChurches Q&A Podcast, Daniel and Todd discuss things to consider when planting your fourth site. Here’s Howard with today’s question: 

We are a three-site church and are considering a fourth campus. How do we keep the cost down and the focus on mission? 

In this episode, you’ll discover:

  • The massive shift that happens when going from three campuses to four or five campuses. 
  • How reducing the scope of ministry automatically reduces financial cost.
