We imag­ine a world in which people’s lives flour­ish as they increas­ing­ly become like Jesus. 


Ren­o­varé USA is a Chris­t­ian non­prof­it that mod­els, resources, and advo­cates full­ness of life with God expe­ri­enced, by grace, through the spir­i­tu­al prac­tices of Jesus and of the his­tor­i­cal Church. 

Chris­t­ian in com­mit­ment, ecu­meni­cal in breadth, and inter­na­tion­al in scope, Ren­o­varé helps peo­ple in becom­ing more like Jesus. 

What We Do

Ren­o­varé pub­lish­es print and online resources, includ­ing books, arti­cles, mes­sages and pod­casts. Retreats, spir­i­tu­al for­ma­tion groups, and edu­ca­tion­al ini­tia­tives like the two-year Ren­o­varé Insti­tute pro­vide com­mu­ni­ty and expe­ri­ence where that knowl­edge can move from head to heart.


In utter depen­dence upon Jesus Christ as my ever-liv­ing Sav­ior, Teacher, Lord, and Friend, I will seek con­tin­u­al renew­al through spir­i­tu­al exer­cis­es, spir­i­tu­al gifts, and acts of service.
