Moves, Mergers, and Multi-Sites

In this 20-minute conversation from the 2014 Leadership Network Conversations Conference, Doug Schmidt, Senior Pastor at Woodside Bible Church in Troy, Michigan shares his insights on how to faithfully approach church growth. With the responsibility of overseeing 12 campuses, most of which came through mergers with other churches, Doug reflects on what God has taught him throughout his time in a multi-site setting.

Doug said, "We always want to be ready to do what God wants us to do." While mergers were not their original strategy, God used them to provide opportunities for growth. As you consider ways to steward church growth, trust God to provide you with the resources you need, even when they differ from your plans.
