Many churches are actively evaluating the idea of microsite campuses as they grow and try to reach more neighborhoods. As Tom Rainer shared in his Ten Major Trends for Churches in 2017, churches are both renewing their emphasis on evangelism and intentionally becoming neighborhood church movements. Actively going to where people are provides more opportunities closer to home for pre-Christians to explore Christianity and be connected to followers of Jesus.
There are three main ways churches engage new communities – planting new churches, launching multisite campuses, and establishing microsites. Church in a Box and our parent company, Portable Church Industries, have 20+ years’ experience assisting churches launch church plants and multisite campuses. Now we have designed a AVL system package for the microsite campus.
A microsite is a way to bring teaching and worship services to people in neighborhoods, regionally, nationally, and even globally. Typically, microsites are missional groups and communities ranging in size from 12 to 120+ that utilizes some form of video teaching in a format that allows more interaction and discussion from the attendees. As a result, attendees that have been burned by the church or who are uncomfortable visiting a traditional church building are more likely to engage with other Jesus followers and explore Christianity in these less formal settings.
Medium to larger microsite locations need audio amplification and video projection. Church in a Box has developed a specific package for microsites. This sound and video system is designed to fit in a standard SUV or minivan and makes transport, setup, and teardown quick and easy while, at the same time, protecting the equipment.
