Feel your parish
come alive.

Training and leadership coaching to help Catholic churches escape maintenance-mode and become missional movements.

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

To the world, hope seems in short supply.

But inside our churches, we know otherwise: Hope is abundant, because Jesus is with us. The trouble is (and this is hard to hear), the Church has lost its enthusiasm for sharing that Truth.

And so parishes are aging.

Congregations are shrinking. 

Priests are discouraged and disengaging.

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

Together, through the power of the Holy Spirit, we can bring life back to parishes and people to Jesus.

Imagine a faith community where...

Unlock radical change in your parish.

Although every parish is unique, three keys have transformed hundreds of them.

The Power of the Holy Spirit

By creating a culture of prayer, we tap into the power of the Holy Spirit—
and our parishes come to life.

The Primacy of Evangelization

By prioritizing evangelization, more people get to encounter Jesus—
and our parishes grow.

The Best of Leadership

By honing our talents and gifts, we share responsibility for leadership—
and our 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."

Church renewal isn't easy.

You don't have to go it alone.

The Divine Renovation team includes congregants, lay leaders, pastors, and priests who’ve been right where you are: longing for more for the Church but unsure how to get there.

Following Fr. James Mallon’s groundbreaking model established in his book, Divine Renovation, we’ve come to understand what’s necessary to turn parishes around. And since 2016, we’ve shared our experience with church leaders all over the world so they can bring their parish from maintenance to mission.

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

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.

Your Church needs your voice.

Our events equip and empower you to share it.
