We are your partners to ensure the best days of your church are still ahead.
The Center for Progressive Renewal seeks to renew Christianity by training entrepreneurial leaders, supporting the birth of new congregations, renewing and strengthening existing churches, and growing a network of progressive ministries that support and nourish each other and bring about a more just and generous world.
We understand Progressive Christianity as a faith that believes God’s family includes all people; God’s people are responsible for caring for the environment, the poor, the sick, and the vulnerable; that education, healthcare, and civil liberties are vital to abundant life; and that truth is found more often in grappling with the questions than in absolute answers.
We believe the progressive faith described above is just what millions of Americans hunger for. In many places our methods for sharing and growing that faith have grown stagnant and decline has set in, but that’s not the end of the story. We believe the Holy Spirit is at work, renewing Christian communities and leadership, and we are eager to partner with you and with the Spirit in that movement.
