About

This site is dedicated to issues related to ecclesiology for multi-site churches and house church networks.  The impetus for this site came from research that was conducted on house church networks and a large multi-site church in 2008.  The argument of this blog is that many U.S. multi-site churches and house church networks have pioneered new innovations on free-church ideas that have led to an emerging multi-site ecclesiology.

The author (Todd Hobart) successfully defended his dissertation based on this research in March 2009 and received a Ph.D. degree in Congregational Mission and Leadership from Luther Seminary in St. Paul, MN.  He currently works with youth at St. Matthew Lutheran Church in Renton, WA.
