7 Characteristics of a Pastoral Team

This past week was a super exciting week for us at My Victory. We released the book My Victory Starts Here along with the series on the same topic. We celebrated 8 baptisms in our site in Okotoks and we successfully launched our campus in Lloydminster with 190 people in attendance! I am so proud of our team there and all of the work they put in to make the church launch such a success. It is no small feat to gather a crowd of this magnitude when opening a brand new church in a community. I am so impressed.

Now the work begins to turn that crowd into a congregation, to turn our new converts into disciples. This is a big job, and it takes a highly qualified and passionate team to do this. This is much more than just a job that one pastor can do. Remember, John Maxwell once said that “one is too small a number to achieve greatness.”

I often get asked the question, “why do you choose to do multisite church plants instead of just planting an independent church. Here are 10 reasons why we decided to plant a multisite churches:

  1. _____________________.
