There are many churches in need of adoption. For the adopting church there is much to think about and consider when looking at this new opportunity. Once the decision is made to adopt, how can the church best serve this new opportunity? In this week’s episode of Revitalize and Replant, Thom and Mark discuss four major attitudes which are necessary when adopting another church.
Four Major Attitudes You Need:
- Compassion for those hurting
- Hope in the possibilities
- Determination for the effort
- Patience for the merger of two churches
Resources mentioned in today’s podcast:
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.
