What is Church Renewal?
God wants every church to be a vibrant, loving, Spirit-filled, and outward-focused body of believers. Church Renewal assists Nazarenes in bringing a new sense of mission and purpose to their plateaued congregations. This is accomplished mainly by creating and distributing resources and hosting events.
InterConnect is a new USA/Canada church search tool that was created to allow pastors to connect with their peers.
Please also take a look at our newest resources, the training modules. They can be taught to small and large groups. The modules are all less than 2 hours and teach important concepts for renewing your congregations mission and purpose.
