    Is there a way to get more info. about the structure you put in place? Or even the structure you had prior.

      Dean, great question! You can see all of the posts I’ve written on multi-site here: https://dfranks.com/category/multi-site/.

      To give a very, very stripped down version of the structure, all of our campus pastors report up to our Executive Pastor over Campuses. The Campus Pastors are direct overseers of all of their campus staff. However, each campus staff member has a “dotted line” relationship to the central staff member who oversees their particular ministry. As an example, a First Impressions Director is under the authority of their Campus Pastor, but accountable to me for standards, protection of DNA, etc.

    Interesting! Is this because you couldn’t do it until they had reached 6 or if that you didn’t see it as necessary until 6?

    How soon would you recommend moving to this if possible?

      Tanys, I think if we had to do it all over again – knowing what we know now – we would have made the move earlier, perhaps even at three campuses. At the time, it was hard to forecast how rapidly we’d be adding campuses, a classic case of “You don’t know what you don’t know.”
