Renovo Network

Almost a year ago I posted an intro to the Renovo Network concept, entitled: Transforming Cities – The Church beyond the Spiritual Box.   Since this post we've incorporated the Renovo Group, the Tentmaker Group and Imagine City Group.  We continue to work on the the organization but first we realized it needed a funding mechanism up and running, which we launched as the Tentmaker Group.  To date we've trained over 40 people on Tentmaker Group roles and I believe by the end of this year we will have established a sustainable mechanism to help missional leaders and churches seek city renewal.  If this is the case, our prayer is that through external funding we can roll this into 25 cities by next year.  Here is a little bit about Renovo:
