Church Revitalization and Strengthening

Renovate SEMO Team Leader: Mike Parry

Like all living organisms, every church is either growing or dying.  The demands of weekly ministry often leaves little to no time to engage in assessing and developing new strategies and plans to ensure continued growth. This is why we believe that it is helpful to invite other leaders to assist in this process.  We currently have people trained in a variety of  assessment tools which can give you a good snapshot of where the church is at, identify areas that would benefit from focused attention, and even develop plans for bringing about desired change in some of those areas. Our team is a part of the Resound Network of the Missouri Baptist Convention. Additionally, several leaders in our association have been trained to lead the Bible Training Center for Pastors/Leaders.

The Malphurs Group has a new podcast for revitalization:  Church Revitalization Podcast


Bob Bickford, Associate Director, Replant of North American Mission Board, and Jimbo Stewart, Replant Pastor in Jacksonville FL, have a weekly podcast called Replant bootcamp.  They are specifically addressing the on the ground challenges faced by those who are Replanting churches in years 1-5.  It features episodes built around questions submitted by Replanters as well as features some special guests along the way who join them to answer those questions.  They have also included a regular episode featuring “stupid stuff we did and survived.” 

They are working hard to focus on the boots on the ground nitty gritty grind of Replanting normative sized congregations. The podcast can be found at:
