Episode #2 – Advice for Replanting Residents and Rookies (with Boots on the Ground Guest Jesse Peters)
In this episode Bob and JimBo are joined by BOOTS ON THE GROUND GUEST Jesse Peters from Ebenezer Baptist Church in Henderson, NC. Jesse is helping start a replanting residency at his church and wanted to know what advice we would have for replanting residents and rookies.
Replanting is not easy work, but it also isn’t super complicated.
In this episode, Bob and JimBo discuss and define terms. This is one of the questions we get the most. What is the difference between a replant and a revitalization.
Replanting is a form of revitalization. Every replant is a revitalization, but not every revitalization is a replant.
REVITALIZATION = existing church + existing leaders + existing structure + history or legacy + renewed/new effort (over a protracted period of time)
REPLANT = new qualified/skilled leader + existing people + new structures/approaches + outside partners + new people + history
