Renovaré is a community of Christians seeking continual spiritual renewal in Christ. We are convinced that all people can enjoy a closer walk with Jesus, leading to a more vibrant and fulﬁlling Christlike life. Founded by spiritual formation author Richard J. Foster, Renovaré is Christian in commitment, international in scope, and ecumenical in breadth.
What is the Renovaré Institute?
Richard J. Foster first drew up a proposal for a spiritual formation academy/institute in 1991. Since that time, there has been an explosion of interest in spiritual formation with the majority of seminaries offering “something” related to spiritual formation. However, even with the burgeoning interest, it is rare to find programs that maintain what Renovaré champions—high Christology, balanced vision, practical strategies, a breadth of historical and ecumenical engagement, and a superior quality in ideas and written materials.
