Product Description

Product Description

Growing churches today are utilizing multisite and church planting strategies to reproduce themselves for greater outreach and impact. But where? That is the purpose of this book. This book is not intended to address the why of these missional approaches or even the how. This book is a tool and guide to the where. Where should we meet? What kind of facilities are usable for churches? What are the implications of the various options?

Tomberlin and Cool reveal the keys to using location as a way to reproduce and increase impact. Locality is all about the convergence of location and facility. The where of a church matters. This book explains the new rules for multisite churches and church plants. Additional contributors to this book include Ed Stetzer, Brad Leeper, and Rich Birch.

3.0 out of 5 stars "A few good ideas"--which is admittedly better than "few good ideas" 4 Aug 2014
By Jeff Hopper - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a rather disjointed collection of ideas and suggestions, some offering little more than common sense for the average church building committee member. Also, you'll recognize that the slant here is more toward second, third, etc. sites of multi-siting churches in the same locale than it is for plants far separated geographically from the planting church and intending to employ an on-site teaching pastor rather than use the video feed from the "famous pastor."

Looking at what our options are right now for our church. This book detailed what was working and what wasn't all across the country and why. Very helpful and practical information as well.

Wow. Lots of good information . Thank you for writing this timely book. I'm in the middle of searching for that "right" church locality.
5.0 out of 5 stars More than land and buildings 10 Sep 2014
By Edward Schuppe - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is a lot more than just land and buildings. So many great things to remember and to consider in launching a new church plant of revitalizing an older church that appears tired. Great read. I have notes from every single chapter.
