In The Replanted Church you’ll read the story and be given proven leadership steps
that God used in reviving a church not far from closing its doors.

In 1991, Nags Head Church [all 13 or so at the meeting] voted to call a young pastor to lead them.  Now, 27 years later Rick Lawrenson continues
leading that same church, constantly seeking the changes the Lord has for them as they reach their community and world.

If you’re wondering whether to plant, replant or you’re in a church needing a breath of fresh air,
The Replanted Church will encourage you to pursue your calling for God’s church.
