Randy shard that his church has stopped using a multi-campus model because they realized the community impact was stronger when local churches worked together. Steve said that in his church’s desire to reclaim kingdom resources, they have walked away from more deals that are not worth the time and money. Consider their words and if there is something at your church that might need to be reevaluated.
