In recent years, the multi-site church model has become increasingly popular. Most churches open a new campus when they approach 1,000 members, but about 50% of those churches say that they could have opened a satellite campus even sooner, at around 850 members.

If your ministry is thinking about opening an additional location, that means you’re reaching a growing number of engaged members and people are excited about joining your community. This can only happen when a church truly connects with its members to deliver a message they want and need, so congratulations!

One of the biggest decisions to make when opening new campuses is determining how to share your main sermon with separate locations. BoxCast’s Multi-Site Video Player is the solution to enabling remote campuses to watch your live broadcasts seamlessly.
