- Model it.
- Seek to lead explicitly evangelistically.
- Give examples of other churches.
- Combine prayer and outreach.
- Seek accountability.

Revitalize & Replant is sponsored by the North American Mission Board and ChurchReplanters.com. More than 10% of churches in North America are at risk of closing and the North American Mission Board is committed to reversing this trend by decreasing the death rate of existing churches while simultaneously increasing the birth rate of new churches.
