Jesus showed us what it means to be fully alive, living in intimate connection with the Father, ministering in the power of the Holy Spirit. We're invited into that kind of life—life in the Kingdom of the heavens—right here and now.

The Renovaré Institute for Christian Spiritual Formation is a two-year online and in-person school designed to plunge you into that life.

Over the course of two years, students are guided in daily online studies, practice a variety of spiritual disciplines, develop a spiritual community with a small group of co-learners, and experience four week-long learning residencies in a retreat setting.

Like all things Renovaré, the program is a blend of intellect and experience, of individual and community, of theory and practice, of charismatic and contemplative. It is deeply and unapologetically centered on Christ and rooted in the gospel of the Kingdom.

The Renovaré Institute is designed to put its participants in position to live fully in the Kingdom of God, whatever their real life circumstances may be, increasingly manifesting the character and power of that Kingdom throughout the contemporary world. —Dallas Willard
