Renovaré Institute Pastoral Reference


About the Renovaré Institute

The Renovaré Institute for Christian Spiritual Formation is an ecumenical program offering rigorous learning, prayerful praxis, and intentional community to fulfill its mission of training disciples of Jesus Christ to more fully experience the Trinitarian life, love, and transformation he offers. Should this applicant be admitted, he or she will be a member of a 45-student cohort who will study together for two years. The program includes an online reading/study load that takes most students 8-12 hours/week to complete, and then the cohort also meets together for four week-long residencies over the two years.

At the end of the program, the hope is that students have not only experienced personal transformation, but that they are also equipped to pass on some of what they have learned to others in their own contexts.

Your candid and confidential evaluation of the applicant's suitability for this program will be of great assistance to our discernment process. Thank you so much for your time!
