Developing an Associational Replanter Assessment Guide for the North American Mission Board, Alpharetta, Georgia
James Troy Stewart
The project's purpose was to develop and associational replanter assessment guide for the North American Mission Board (NAMB). The project model for this project was the ministry research model. First, the project director explored the field of church replanting to determine a list of the essential church replanter characteristics. Second, the project director researched a selection of church planter assessment processes to provide a report on best practices. Third, the project director designed a replanter pre-assessment process for online development. Fourth, the project director developed a replanter assessment guide for NAMB to provide local associations and state conventions. Finally, the project director presented the pre-assessment design and assessment guide to the NAMB Replant team for approval. The project sought to increase the NAMB Replant team's impact to equip local Southern Baptist Associations to identify, assess, and develop church replanters in an effort to replant healthier churches in the future.
