Chris Mavity joined the North Coast Church leadership team in 1997. His first assignment was to “create an overflow room that was a reward, not a punishment.” Instead of an overflow room, Chris developed the first “Video Worship Venue,” a preferred worship environment that spawned the modern day multi-site ministry movement that has spread throughout the country and beyond. Chris has also been instrumental in the continued development of North Coast's Sermon-Based Small Group ministry, serving for five years as the lead pastor of that ministry. He consults and coaches professional ministry teams from around the country in the areas of small group development, multi-site and multi-venue ministry and team leadership. Chris is now the Executive Director of the North Coast Training, a ministry that provides pastors & church leaders with focused training and resources to further expand their ministry & His Kingdom. He also is the author of Your Volunteers.
