Church replanting is becoming more frequent in churches and denominations. Today, Mark Clifton explains five reasons why.
Today’s Listener Question:
My husband listens to Rainer on Leadership all the time when we’re in the car. He absolutely loved the episode with Mark Clifton about replanting as well as this podcast. He explained that the concept of replanting is a newer one. Why is that?
- In North America, we’ve lost the “local” in our local churches.”
- Our communities should be noticeably better because of their local church.
- Your church should be an integral part of its community and neighborhood.
- We live in a DIY world. Remodeling and reclaiming old church buildings fits in that.
The 5 reasons we cover in this episode are:
- The rise of home grown and local
- The rise of thrift and vintage
- Commuter fatigue
- The DIY trend
- Closing churches give new people new opportunities
Resources mentioned in this episode include:
