Each year between 900 to 1,000 churches hold their final services and close their doors. As a part of the Send Network, Replant desires to reverse this trend. Our prayer is that communities would see the transforming work of Christ as He brings new life to these once dying churches. The Replant podcast will discuss relevant topics related to church replanting. This resource is meant to equip and encourage those who have taken on the hard task of being a church replanter.
