I attended the Renovaré Institute and my entire being has been forever transformed.   - Renovaré Institute graduate

Our 2017-2019 Seattle-based cohort of the Renovaré Institute is one month into their first course, and once again we are grateful for and energized by the group that God has gathered together. 

This can only mean one thing: time to start praying and preparing for our 2018-2020 Chicago Cohort! (The students who are selected for this cohort will study online all over the world, and meet together for four week-long residencies in Chicago.)

The Renovaré Institute for Christian Spiritual Formation is a two-year online and in-person school designed to plunge participants deeper into the with-God life.

Over the course of two years, students read more than 24 books and over 100 articles, participate in a variety of spiritual formation activities, develop a spiritual community with a small group of co-learners, and experience four residencies—28 days total—with teaching and formational activities built around key Renovaré concepts.

We are delighted to partner with the University of St. Mary of the Lake’s Conference Center to host our four Chicago residencies.

Might you be feeling a tug to apply to the Renovaré Institute? You can find out more here—and even sign-up to receive a program overview (at the bottom of each Institute page). Applications will be open until April 2, 2018.

Please keep the Institute, our faculty, and our students in your prayers.

Now Underway: The 2018-19 Renovaré Book Club

How do we read for transformation, not just information? First, choose books that stir the soul and have an enduring quality. Then read with God and others at an unhurried pace, attentive to what the Holy Spirit wants to teach. The Renovaré Book Club is designed for transformative reading. It runs October 2018—May 2019.
