What qualities are you looking for in a Replanted leader?

Replanted leaders love Jesus, have a heart for foster care and adoption, enjoy leading, feel comfortable navigating the dynamics of a small group, have a deep sense of empathy and compassion, lead from grace, and have the bandwidth to meet monthly and receive ongoing coaching. If that’s you, apply!

I’ve never fostered or adopted, but I have a heart for that community. Can I still apply to be a leader?

It’s helpful when group leaders have firsthand experience with foster care or adoption, but it’s not a requirement for leadership. We appreciate our leaders who champion the cause of the fatherless by volunteering to lead a group!

How big of a time commitment is leadership?

Leaders can expect to spend about 3-5 hours per month supporting their group, networking with local churches and agencies, recruiting volunteers, and overseeing general group logistics.

Leaders will also meet with the National Replanted Team approximately 4 times per year virtually. Replanted leaders are strongly encouraged to attend a day long meeting of equipping and training at the Replanted Conference each October.

I’m interested in serving but would like to work directly with kids. How can I get involved?

Mentors are valued, crucial members of the Replanted team. While the parents meet, kids complete an age-appropriate curriculum and fun activities. Our background-checked, highly trained mentors create a safe space for kids to process their trauma and connect with other kids who relate to their experiences. If you’re interested in volunteering as a mentor, contact us to learn more.

Many foster and adoptive families at my church would love to be in a group. Can I launch several groups at once?

We ask churches and ministries to launch one group at a time before starting additional groups.

I’m not affiliated with an organization. Can I launch a group on my own?

Yes! We love helping groups launch out of organizations and churches to make sure you have community support around you, but don’t require it.
