Replants sometimes struggle with their internal identity. Today we look at the inner workings of a replant and how to use your unique position for Kingdom impact.

Episode Highlights:

  • Not only do you need spousal cooperation in replanting, you need spousal perseverance as well.
  • “Just running the denominational programs” rarely draws people to a church anymore.
  • Gathered worship has to start where the people in the church are and needs to engage them authentically.
  • Praying for other churches models selflessness.

The five observations we discuss are:

  1. The replanter’s family
  2. The extinction of growth by low hanging fruit
  3. Worship in a replant
  4. Replants shouldn’t try to be a smaller version of a larger church
  5. Church replant facility uses

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.
