The Center for Prophetic Thought, Voice, Art and Action

The Renewal Center is a place where hospitality is always moving and living, a place where hospitality is in action. No one is perfect, but no one, thankfully, is expecting perfection. We only want to walk beside each other in grace, and support each other as we are able along life’s journey.

I love the words of Carmelite nun Teresa of Avila: Christ has no body but yours, No hands, no feet on earth but yours, Yours are the eyes with which he looks Compassion on this world I am grateful for the reminder and the reality that we are made in God's image and likeness; we can all be image bearers of hospitality in a world that so desperately needs it.  

The Unique Experience

Renewal Center is the emphasis of sonship in Christ expressed and experienced through community and compassion.  Let’s show a glimpse of what a more beautiful world could look like-a glimpse of love in action—a glimpse of God. If you are in the Concord/Charlotte area or passing through, stop by our café and have some tea or a coffee on us; enter our thought room to read, study and contemplate; recline in the art/voice room to ignite your creative ingenuity and engage the action room to activate ideation through conversation and creative spaces.

 If you are not in the area, join us virtually in  The  New You Digital Discipleship. Please  email our Digital Renewal team at  for information.  The New You Digital Discipleship is  a virtual-hybrid “contemplative Sunday.” That basically means that instead of singing, at times we sit and meditate, which is usually accompanied by music, a reading, a silent prayer, a still moment, sharing and teaching.

To register for the New You:

We are encouraged to offer hospitality by welcoming every part of ourselves to the moment. All of our weaknesses, along with our strengths; the dark places, along with the light; our sorrows and our joys. In the midst of this welcome, we envision and engage one another as “beloved,” as “Renewers,” a reminder that we were all made in image and after the likeness of God.
