The Renewal Center vision was originally birthed in heart of our Founders Pastors Reuben and Clarita Barruel. Their call and hearts desire upon moving to the United States 44 years ago was not to start a church but to build bridges of LOVE between believers from different denominations, congregations and organizations. Christian Renewal Ministries was founded to be a place of renewal encouragement, and training in the work of the ministry. 


During 2020 pandemic there was a potential building that became available which awakened that original vision between several organizations. Although  aquiring that building did not materialize, the desire for fellowship, connection and cooperative ventures between various ministries, organizations became evident and the seed to do kingdom expansion AS ONE.  We may have different focus in our organizations but our goal is always the same, to build and expand the Kingdom of God.  


Therefore, as we begin The Renewal Center, we want to be clear that it is not just another part of The Renewal Church and its ministries, but is a fulfillment of the original vision given to create a place for authentic fellowship, connection, strategic partnerships, collaboration, supporting and championing each other in the call the Lord has given to each organization.

Renewal Sessions is a gathering of worshipers from throughout our cities and region.  Musicians, singers, artist, dancers and creatives of all types come together for one agenda, to worship Jesus.  

We believe God is gathering the creatives to birth new sounds, sights and expressions of beauty that will build the Kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven.  Zecheria 1: 20-21 tells us of the craftsman throwing down the horns that have scattered Judah (Praise). The solution are the craftsmen of God. These sessions are also places of intercession and personal ministry as the Lord moves upon the worshippers.
