About Rich.

Rich Birch // Church Execution Guy

Rich Birch is one of the early multi-site church pioneers in North America. He led the charge in helping The Meeting House in Toronto to become the leading multi-site church in Canada with over 4,000 people in 6 locations. In addition, he served on the leadership team of Connexus Community Church in Ontario, a North Point Community Church Strategic Partner.

So this is a place to collect some thoughts about local church and doin’ stuff right in local church. I really am not a “know it all” or “expert” but really just somebody who has made a lot of mistakes in leadership and is attempting to pass along some learning so you don’t have to pay the “stooopid tax”.

    Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone! debdfaacbeae

    Rev Birch-

    I thought your post in the Lewis Center for Church Leadership was just terrific. I am just back from a trip to Bolivia, and I found your 8 reasons right on point.

    Could I ask you to consider one change? Perhaps if we stopped calling these types of trips mission trips–but called them Pilgrimages. We go to be together in places that God loves very much, and to spend time with his Children,

    I too, was an “anti-mission” trip person. But, changing the word can also alter and deepen our perspective. It allowed me to Pilgrimage to Bolivia, and it was one of the best experiences of my life.

    Thank you again for your wonderful post

    Mary
