Congregational Resource Guide
Finding the right resources for your congregation
Dying congregations can foster new life through the North American Mission Board (NAMB) Replant ministry. Replant works by utilizing the assets of a declining congregation to begin a new church. Participating congregations undergo a Missions Site evaluation to determine the feasibility of replant. If accepted, the congregation agrees to change their leadership and decision-making structure, and deeds the property and other assets to a parent organization. The resulting church will fit one of three models: Replant, Multi-Campus, or Merger. In a replant, the at-risk congregation closes and a new church is launched in its place. In the multi-campus model, the at-risk church closes and becomes a new campus for an existing congregation. With a merger, the at-risk church joins an existing church plant. NAMB’s Replant ministry serves primarily Southern Baptist congregations, but others are welcome to consider the Replant process.
