Feel your parish
come alive.

Coaching and tools to help your church escape maintenance mode, reclaim its purpose, and get back on track for mission.

At a Divine Renovation event for parish renewal, a woman is deep in prayer.

Your parish was made for mission.

After all, Jesus didn’t give the Church a mission — He gave his mission a Church. The trouble is (and this is hard to hear), most parishes are living through an identity crisis: they’ve forgotten their purpose.

And so congregations are shrinking.

Parishes are aging.

Priests are discouraged and disengaging.

But that’s not the end of the story. Resurrection is.

Through the power of the Holy Spirit, you can bring life back to your parish and people to Jesus.

Imagine a parish where...

Unlock radical change in your parish.

Although every parish is unique, these Three Keys to Parish Renewal have transformed hundreds of them.

The Best of Leadership

When parish leaders serve out of the best leadership principles, parishes thrive.

"We were struggling with moving the church forward. The leadership coaching sessions have been immensely useful. We see people all of a sudden coming to us, and they want to contribute."

Parish renewal isn't easy.

But you don't have to do it alone.

We accompany priests and lay leaders who desire to see their parish come alive by providing them with the tools and coaching they need to bring renewal.

Inspired by Fr. James Mallon’s book Divine Renovation and following the example of missional parishes, we’ve come to understand what’s necessary to turn parishes around. And since 2016, we’ve shared our experience with parish leaders around the world so they can bring their parish from maintenance to mission.

We can’t wait to see what God does through your church.

Transformation is happening now.

Divine Renovation is a donor-funded ministry.

Money should never be a barrier to the pursuit of renewal. Thanks to our generous supporters, we’re able to come alongside priests and parishes at no charge.

Together, we can create a tipping point of change in the Church.

Our events help you make that happen.

Will my parish still be here in 10 years? If it were to close, would the community even notice?

In the face of such sobering thought, the good news is that parishes can come to new life if they live their missionary identity and make new disciples. Think it's time to take a more serious look into the problem of church decline? Join Bishop David Oakley and Fr. James Mallon on Tuesday, 7th December in our online event, Thriving or Closing: Where is your parish going?
