Multisite and Multiplication

Todd Wilson

There are currently over 5,000 churches of varying sizes that are utilizing a multisite strategy. Yet most churches are utilizing multisite simply as a Level 3 addition growth strategy. What gets our hearts beating faster at Exponential is that we’re beginning to see some churches pushing multisite to the edges of Level 4 reproduction. In fact, nearly every church that has assessed at Level 4 on our church multiplication assessment is doing some form of multisite. (You can take your own Assessment here).

Exponential is committed to helping you move from addition (Level 3) to reproduction (Level 4) and multiplication (Level 5). We invite you to check out the newly released resources below. You can find more free multisite resources by checking out the Multisite Channel on our website.
