2 Why This Conference? A Growing Interest in Multi-Site Ministry Benefit of Collaboration Among Churches Two Things We Don’t Want to Do

3 Number 1: We don’t want to push a particular Philosophy of Ministry. Multi-Site a Strategy Multi-Site can work with any model or philosophy of ministry Multi-Site is a “delivery system”

4 Number 2: We don’t want to try to convince you to adopt Harbor’s model. Tri-Perspectivalism & Ministry  Application of the Gospel (Normative)  To your specific calling (Situational)  With your unique gifts (Existential) Harbor is a unique convergence of these three perspectives. Every other church is as well.
