“As I view the landscape of church planting in urban areas, I sense the need for careful recruiting, helpful training and solid resourcing. In South Florida, RENEW is the only one who provides all of this – bringing experienced and creative leadership to the long table that stretches from South Dade to North Palm Beach.”
We believe that the gospel is not only the entry point of the Christian faith, but also the way by which we express that faith and grow daily.
RENEW churches challenge Christians to live out the radically counter-cultural lifestyle to which Christ calls us, to engage and welcome skeptics, to graciously present the truth of Christ and to relevantly challenge existing cultural misconceptions about Christianity.
We love South Florida for its diversity, its vitality, and its desire for redemption. God created cities and intended them to be places of refuge, creativity and beauty, but the reality of sin has caused conflict, disorder and inequity.
So RENEW churches view their cities as both beautiful and broken, working to see them flourish, and partnering with existing institutions to create a culture of mercy and justice.
We know that a church-planting movement isn’t simply about one new church. RENEW churches are wired to consistently raise up leaders and send teams to plant more new churches.
In essence, these gospel-driven churches plant churches who plant churches who plant churches, fueling a gospel-centered movement that leads to the spiritual renewal of cities and communities all over South Florida and the world.
“Planting effectively in Miami requires mutuality among leaders across the cultural spectrum. As a Latino, I’m grateful to be able to share my experiences and lean on the wisdom of others through the RENEW network.”
“It’s always been my dream to work with friends. Church planting often attracts those who work well on their own, but soon realize that kind of life is unsustainable. RENEW is a network of friends, working together for the Kingdom.”
“With RENEW I find myself dreaming, learning and praying with pastors from a lot of different denominations and traditions here in South Florida. The partnership opportunities that come from being in the network are so important to us.”
“Being part of the RENEW network is the primary way I surround myself with the expertise of others. It is such a gift to be able to share resources and ideas as we work together to reach our different communities with the Gospel.”
