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 launched his first internet space in 1997 and has been teaching on related issues for the past 20 years. He travels all the time but lives between Wellington, San Francisco and a hobbit home in Prague.

    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.

  • Luke says:

    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.
