Designing a microsite Strategy

A six-session online lab on leveraging what you already have to reach more people
(with Andy Martin)

Leverage What You Already Have to Reach More People

An exciting trend, that is relatively new to both the “Church Growth” and “Church planting” worlds is: Church planting within a Multisite church.
 
Two viable and proven courses for churches have been to either “plant” a new church that becomes it’s own entity or decide to become a Multisite church and “launch” a new location. Multisite churches historically “launch” new locations on the Macro scale, rather than “plant” on the Micro scale. Microsites are giving single location churches the opportunity to step into the Multisite world, as well as giving Multisite churches the opportunity to utilize church planting techniques to reach new areas. This allows both single site and multisite churches to leverage much of what they already have created.
 
Our 6- week Microsite Strategy Lab is crafted to help your church explore and work through critical factors of designing a Microsite/Multisite model that fits your vision and culture.
 
Here’s what you can expect:  
  • Six live online meet-ups with a small cohort of other church leaders
  • Offline learning opportunities and exercises to push your team forward
  • Virtual office hours to dig into your unique challenges
  • Private Basecamp Portal for ongoing communication and collaboration

Your Lab Facilitator

andy martin

With a personal vision statement to “see churches be laser focused on the unique vision God has given them and unencumbered to pursue it,” Andy Martin has served on staff at churches with an attendance from 150 to 17,000, from single site to a 15 location multi site, and has a passion for the different challenges that churches have at various phases in their journey.  

It’s obvious that growth for a church means changes in facilities, but equally important are the organizational structure changes of the church. Andy holds a unique perspective having been a part of staff teams ranging from 2 people to 225, and has walked through multiple leadership structure models to acquire the expertise he holds. When it comes to the facility side of growth, Andy has been intimately involved in multiple building and capital campaigns as well as the building of various auditoriums and supporting spaces with seating capacities ranging from 80-200, 500-600, 1200, and 2300 seat auditoriums.

Andy grew up in Texas and spent time serving at multiple churches there until moving to Pennsylvania with his wife Terry and two children Ethan and Avry in 2000 to be a part of LCBC Church in Central Pennsylvania, where he currently serves as the Pastor of Church Relations on the Expansion Team.
