Posi­tion Description

At Ren­o­varé, we believe that peo­ple real­ly can expe­ri­ence a deep­er, more trans­for­ma­tive life with God. Our edu­ca­tion­al offer­ings are some of the key ways we help guide peo­ple on that journey.

  • The Ren­o­varé Insti­tute for Chris­t­ian Spir­i­tu­al For­ma­tion helps cohorts of 45 stu­dents go deep­er with God and with each oth­er through an inten­sive, 2‑year hybrid (remote and in-per­son) program.

  • The Ren­o­varé Book Club guides over 2000 peo­ple through four soul-shap­ing, Christ-cen­tered books each year. 

  • We con­tin­u­al­ly explore oth­er ways to engage and train spir­i­tu­al­ly hun­gry peo­ple who seek to become more like Jesus.

As the Edu­ca­tion­al Pro­gram Coor­di­na­tor, you will work with the Direc­tor of Edu­ca­tion to facil­i­tate all aspects of the Ren­o­varé Insti­tute. Addi­tion­al­ly, you’ll help to admin­is­trate the Ren­o­varé Book Club and oth­er ini­tia­tives as needed.

  • A 3‑day staff retreat

  • A nation­al retreat, con­nect­ed with a min­istry team retreat (7 days)

  • An RI alum­ni retreat week­end every 18 months (34 days)



Posi­tion Goals

  • Exe­cute logis­tics on oth­er edu­ca­tion­al ini­tia­tives, includ­ing the Book Club, with a vision in each con­text of set­ting the table” for encounter with God.
