One Assembly: Rethinking the Multisite and Multiservice Church Models

Book Overview
Leeman's work was influential in our church's decision to move from multiservice to a single service. -- Ryan Kelly , Pastor of Preaching, Desert Springs Church, Albuquerque, New Mexico Maybe you have been there: you're running late to church, and you know it will be hard to find an empty seat. This is an all-too-frequent experience in a growing church. For churches experiencing this dilemma, a common solution is to add another service or location. This seems like a cost-effective fix. Besides, no one wants to turn away non-Christians. But is it the best option? Jonathan Leeman presents a series of biblical, theological, and pastoral arguments to help reorient our minds to a scriptural definition of church. He makes the case that maintaining a single assembly best follows the Bible, fulfills the Great Commission, and furthers our partnership with other churches.
