What is it all about?
The multi-site church movement is all about reaching more people with the gospel – and this new strategy has already been blessed with success in WELS congregations. Having one church in several locations allows congregations to reach different communities while enjoying practical benefits such as shared resources, efficient organization, and cost-effective programs. The greatest blessing possible is that God would use multi-site ministry to reach more people with the gospel. Whether you are already part of a multi-site ministry or just considering new opportunities for outreach, you can learn from speakers about the challenges and blessings of multi-site ministry.
Why should you join us for this conference?
Some congregations are already multi-site churches. Others could benefit from considering multi-site ministry or learning from those who have multi-site church experience. For these reasons, the national multi-site conference for WELS churches has been organized and attendance is open to everyone. There will be beneficial information for churches that are already doing multi-site ministry, those considering merging with other churches, as well as churches that are considering multi-site ministry to reach more people with the gospel.
