This might be an "in-house" article... I'm not sure. Whatever the case, I offer it because it really intrigues me and so I figure at least 1 or 2% of the readers of this blog may be interested as well. (One of my purposes for writing this blog is to invite people into the conversations and ideas I'm interacting with, hoping that it benefits you.)
The article is a report from Leadership Network's most recent survey of multi-site churches in the U.S. It highlights and explains trends of churches like New Life (over 1,500) that function as "a church distributed". Some of the results of the 2007 survey are also contrasted with the results from 2003 which is very helpful in seeing trends.
So for all you other church leadership nerds out there, enjoy the read and feel free to comment.
