Countless midsized churches experienced a rapid increase in numbers in the late '90s. In their excitement, they built big buildings taking on large mortgages. While charitable giving has increased over the last twenty years, religious giving to churches has decreased by fifty percent, leaving many churches struggling to maintain their buildings. In many cases, church mortgages have become an albatross strangling the church’s missional efforts and hearts. This struggle has left the church impotent to fulfill the call of the Great Commission to “go and make disciples of nations” (Matthew 28:19 NIV). The Cooperative Multi-Denominational (Mosaic) Church Campus is a unique church development plan that crosses multi-denominational lines allowing for creativity in making disciples while better allocating monies and buildings. It is not a renter-landlord approach. It is a method of sharing ministries and buildings like that of a cooperative business plan that allows churches to provide quality programming and Bible Studies beyond the limits of their individual budget.
