How we accomplish our mission

Online Mentoring

Church Renewal offers 4 mentoring tracks: Pastors, Marketplace Leaders, Pastors’ Wives, and General Discipleship. Small groups meet online for 1 hour per week to discuss and put into practice an assigned lesson. The mentoring season runs 32 weeks each year. This approach is conducive for absorbing information, ensuring implementation, and preventing drift.


Participants in the Pastors mentoring track receive 6 Implementation Manuals, to disciple them in personal renewal, and to mentor them to renew their churches. Participants in the other 3 tracks are discipled through 6 modules of TheWay Discipleship Pathway, to renew them personally, and to equip them to disciple others.


The materials may be studied either in a printed version or on TheWay app.

To promote the spirit of generosity, the Lord directed Church Renewal not to charge for resources or for mentoring. Rather, we trust Him to provide through those He prompts to financially support this ministry. The only condition to receiving these resources is active participation in the mentoring track for which the materials are given. The resources are not for sale to non-participants.


"I started applying what I learned and began to see changes in my life. People began to notice as well the change in my passion for God. Church Renewal is slowly taking its roots in our church DNA as I begin to apply what I've learned and continue to take part in the weekly pastors mentoring. I could not thank God enough for bringing Church Renewal into my life and our church."

Pastor Jun Torres

"This isn’t a program for church growth; it’s a movement of God to grow our relationship with God, our character, and our leadership. I highly recommend Church Renewal to all churches and church leaders, though it must start with lead pastors."

Rev. Brian Magnus, Bishop

Connecting with like-minded people from across Canada and learning and growing together has encouraged me to stay in the journey. And all the while I am learning to tune my ear to the voice of God. God is faithful!
