What is a Renovaré “Life in the Kingdom” conference or retreat?

Renovaré partners with local churches and organizations to offer “Life in the Kingdom” gatherings. Participants learn essential elements of living as Christ’s apprentices in the kingdom of God. We integrate teaching, conversation, small-group interaction, and worship. By God’s grace, what emerges is a time of insight and encouragement for those who desire to see their faith refreshed, their awareness awakened, and their spiritual formation deepened.

Renovaré gatherings are also the perfect launching pad for starting small groups (we call them spiritual formation groups) that will support people in vibrant kingdom living.

What are the formats?

Renovaré Conferences are typically held at a church, often for a Friday night and all day Saturday. The schedule is usually quite full with instructional sessions, worship, and attendee interactions. Conference events are particularly effective when the host site forms a co-sponsoring group with other neighboring churches and organizations. Not only does a collaborative effort help ensure the success of the event, it often unites and even transforms the local faith community in the process.

Renovaré Retreats are often held “away” somewhere (although they can take place at a church). Gatherings vary in duration and may take place over a weekend or during the week. Renovaré retreats are thematically similar to conferences, but with more time built in for small groups, as well as more space created for individual silence, solitude, and prayer.
