'Each Renovaré conference offers challenging content,' says Renovaré’s Executive Director Rachel Quan, 'but this year's promises to be one of the most unique.'

The Renovaré National Conference is fast approaching. On April 3-5, fascinating speakers, passionate teachers, and many other followers of Jesus will gather in Houston, Texas, at First Presbyterian Church. The event will feature large group events designed to teach on the theme of "Formation for Whole Life," as well as smaller sessions for more specific instruction and conversation.

Keynote speakers for the Renovaré National Conference include respected psychologist and Bible teacher Larry Crabb, Spiritual Formation teacher Ruth Haley Barton, and pastor and activist Eugene Cho. The list of speakers continues with theology professor and founder of Metamorpha Kyle Strobel, missional teacher Mark Scandrette, author and Professor Chris Hall, Renovaré team member and professor at Spring Arbor University Nathan Foster, pastor and arts ministry leader Juanita Rasmus, as well as Pastor Kai Nilsen, Renovaré team and board member. Richard Foster, Renovaré founder, will facilitate discussion throughout the event.

The conference will focus on "Formation for Whole Life" as viewed through the themes of Identity, Community, and Mission. How does God view us? How do we live, love, and grow with one another? And how can we live our lives as servants, after the pattern of Jesus?

"Each Renovaré conference offers challenging content," says Renovaré’s Executive Director Rachel Quan, "but this year's promises to be one of the most unique. From the speakers, to the conference focus, to the work being done by those in the Houston region, everything is coming together. Living life with God is not something we can do part time. We need to live our lives as a whole with him, and this conference will provide people with the tools to learn how to do just that."

First Presbyterian Church of Houston will host the conference from the very heart of the city. Participants will have the opportunity to experience not only the conference, but Houston's museum district as well. The METRO is nearby, as are many hotels, which will facilitate a rich experience for each attendee.
