Multi-site churches

“Setting up movie theaters to project the graven image of rock-star celebrity pastors across the United States has some long-term implications.”

Ed Stetzer, on video, this week in Florida. Great quote. I tend to agree with Ed. I was at this conference in Florida 2 years ago and had the same concerns.


Andrew Jones has been blogging since 1997. He is based in San Francisco with his two daughters but also travels the globe to find compelling stories of early stage entrepreneurs changing their world. Sometimes he talks in the third person. Sometimes he even talks to himself and has been heard uttering the name "Precious" :-)


  • great quote but it an unfair summary of what he says. that is the provocative hook to a longer thoughtful reflection on how multi-site is a tool which needs to be understood in order to be used in a healthy way.

  • I appreciate somebody (mr. Ed) in the middle of the ‘multi-site’ revolution thinking about its implications. I have a gut level reaction to video preaching and some of the other things that come along with the ‘revolution’ and I have been a little shocked that I haven’t yet heard many people questioning it or working out its implications. Stetzer seems to have thought about it and decried certain versions of it. His recognition of the idolatrous tendencies of the movement is refreshing.
