Episode 8: Being Banished to the Kids Table

Have you ever been banished to the kids table? Campuses can sometimes feel this way.

In Episode 8 of the New Churches Q&A Podcast, we discuss the major tensions that multisite churches feel. Here is Courtney Lyon’s question.

How do you balance resourcing the campuses in a way that’s helpful, while giving them enough flexibility and freedom so they’re not bogged down?

In this episode, you’ll discover:

  • The importance of language in multisite ministry
  • Why every campus should know what’s happening at the other campuses
  • Why big tent-pole events are important for multisite churches
  • Different thoughts around resources for multisite ministry

Shareable Quotes (#NewChurchesQA):

  • “Words build worlds.”
  • “Your campus won’t reach your community, unless it reflects your community.”
  • “Language matters.”
  • “Go to a neutral place for your big tent-pole events.”
