Discern your call

Replanting and Revitalization is difficult. In order to persevere and be successful as a replanting pastor, it will require a clear call from God for both the pastor and his spouse.

To help you discern your call, we recommend two books:

  • Am I A Replanter? by Bob Bickford and Mark Hallock
  • Church Planting is for Wimps by Mike McKinley

Additionally, we encourage you to do an in-depth study of the book of Acts to see how the early church spread and how God used ordinary men and women to accomplish His purposes.
