Therefore encourage one another and build up each other, as indeed you are doing.
—1 Thessalonians 5:11
What can I do, right now, to start being more intentional about my life with God?
How can I encourage genuine discipleship within my church community?
These are two of the burning questions that most often bring people to Renovaré.
One of the strategies we can recommend without reservation is the creation of Spiritual Formation Groups.
All over the world, in living rooms, café’s, church basements, and back porches, small groups of ordinary people are meeting together to spur each other on in their lives with God. These Spiritual Formation Groups harness the power of and with often life-changing results for their participants.
Spiritual Formation Groups are small (typically 2-7 members), and they meet together regularly (often weekly). They form for the express purpose of encouraging each member to become increasingly more like Jesus.
Thousands of people have found Renovaré’s Spiritual Formation Workbook invaluable in starting and sustaining these Spiritual Formation Groups within their church or personal context. The Workbook features practical guidelines for starting a group, study plans for the first eight sessions, and a questionnaire that helps map the way ahead
Renovaré Spiritual Formation Groups members foster spiritual balance by learning together about the Six Traditions of the Church. They practice the related spiritual disciplines throughout the week and then share their experiences. They pray together, laugh together, hold one another accountable, and cheer each other on.
