Episode 371: Rural Matters

In Episode 371 of the NewChurches Q&A Podcast, Daniel and Ed do a live podcast recording at Exponential 2019 in Orlando. On this episode, Daniel and Ed discuss rural multi-site ideas. Here is today’s question:

“In what ways has it been problematic that modern models for multiplication and multisite have ossified around mega churches and not the 90+ percent of churches that need to be learning how to structure for multiplication. ” 

In This Episode, You’ll Discover:

  • The need to focus on rural multi-site when structuring for multiplication 
  • The reason why rural multi-site is not discussed as often as it should be
