At the core of Ren­o­varé is the Min­istry Team. Com­prised of peo­ple from var­i­ous denom­i­na­tions, ages, edu­ca­tion­al and cul­tur­al back­grounds, this group meets once a year to retreat togeth­er. Same time, same place. It has for decades. And God will­ing, it will for decades to come. This gath­er­ing is a safe place for these lead­ers and pas­tors to be known. Fel­low­ship of the Burn­ing Heart was inspired by this fruit­ful model. 

What is the Fel­low­ship of the Burn­ing Heart?

The Fel­low­ship of the Burn­ing Heart is a dis­persed com­mu­ni­ty of Jesus’ friends who long for deep­er inti­ma­cy with the Tri­une God.

We are com­mit­ted to Jesus, to one anoth­er, to our shared val­ues and beliefs, and to the Ren­o­varé covenant as a gen­er­al rule of life. We share brief month­ly con­nec­tions, and an annu­al local gath­er­ing retreat.

We strive to be a lis­ten­ing com­mu­ni­ty of diverse denom­i­na­tion­al expres­sions marked by love, avail­abil­i­ty and vul­ner­a­bil­i­ty to God and one anoth­er in friend­ship, mutu­al sup­port, and encour­age­ment in the with-God life.

Our pri­ma­ry pur­pose is to grow as dis­ci­ples of Jesus — for our trans­for­ma­tion, for the good of oth­ers, and for God’s ever­last­ing glory.

One-Year Pilot Groups

Health and longevi­ty are goals for Fel­low­ship of the Burn­ing Heart. Start small and, as the Spir­it leads, grow slowly. 

To that end, three one-year pilots are being con­duct­ed for the pur­pose of care­ful eval­u­a­tion. The pilots, each around 20 peo­ple, are cur­rent­ly full. Our inten­tion is to build a sol­id frame­work and devel­op broad­en­ing local capac­i­ty over time. 

Are you inter­est­ed in learn­ing more about join­ing a local chap­ter when the pilots con­clude? Sign up below and we’ll keep you posted.

In the fel­low­ship of the burn­ing heart, 

Nathan Fos­ter Direc­tor of Com­mu­ni­ty Life, Renovaré
