Every Thursday afternoon we highlight the writing of J. D. Greear, Pastor of The Summit Church in Raleigh-Durham, NC. This week, we point you to the work of his pastoral associate, Chris Pappalardo, who responds to some recent critiques of the multi-site model.
Here’s an excerpt:
As with many critiques of the multi-site model, this isn’t specific to multi-site. This is a tendency for any church, a tendency that increases as the size of the church increases. One might even argue—as we have elsewhere—that having a multitude of campuses can increase leadership beyond the primary pastor, making hierarchicalism less likely.
