Renovaré is hosting a four-day, three-night retreat in Colorado Springs for pastors and ministry leaders—men and women who know they can only give what they first receive from God. It will be a safe space to rest and refocus on Jesus alongside others who understand what it means to be a ministry leader. Space is limited to 45 pastors and less than five spots remain.

First Love


June 8-10, 2023

RēGathering is a three-day Renovaré gathering in Denver, Colorado—a space to recenter our scattered souls on Jesus and be refreshed and renewed. There will be good teaching, but more than that we hope those who come will “taste and see” the Kingdom of God through meals, workshops, worship, prayer, conversation, silence, and laughter. Early bird pricing is available through Friday, March 10.
