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.
Currently Rich serves as Operations Pastor at Liquid Church in the Manhattan facing suburbs of New Jersey.
Rich has a dual vocational background that uniquely prepares him for serving churches to multiply impact. While in the marketplace, Rich founded a dot-com with two partners in the late 90’s that worked to increase value for media firms and internet service providers.
He and his wife Christine live in Scotch Plains, NJ with their two children and two dogs.
Rich doesn’t like writing in the third person.
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”.
