Well…after Bob accidentally deleted the audio they stuck with it and finally got the podcast recorded for a “Live Bootcamp” from the Missouri Baptist Annual Convention in St. Charles MO.

Joining the guys on this episode is Brandon Moore, Director of The Resound Network for the MBC. He and the boys talk about Residencies and why they are important.

Why consider a Replant Residency?

  • Applied learning in a “hands on environment.”
  • You can confirm or affirm or redirect your call to Replanting.
  • The likelihood is great that you will Pastor a church in need of revitalization or replanting-get the help you need before you pastor.
  • A residency can help you put together the principles of a revitalization plan for your initial pastorate.
  • A resident can discern the areas where they need to develop in their own leadership.
  • A residency offers you the chance to learn humility.

Here’s some good news-there is no prototypical “type” of resident. Residents can be of any age or in any stage of life.
