Here's a Flashback Friday! Check out our Facebook for the full video (link in bio). On November 12, 2017, a group of people gathered for prayer and worship in a room above an ice cream shop in Apopka, Florida. They were people from all walks of life and several nations, though some had never met each other until that day. The common ground was that there was a stirring in their hearts, a passion to seek God with all of their being.
In the weeks that followed, the group meeting for prayer and worship grew in numbers. There was no doubt that God was doing a mighty thing. They felt led of God to form a new kind of church, one that would focus on those who needed to be rescued, redeemed, and restored. God placed a dream in their hearts to have a church where all people can find grace, mercy, forgiveness, and healing.
On November 26, 2017, the group of believers, led by seven men and their wives, asked Jason Henderson to lead them as Pastor. The vote of confidence by 130 people present that day was unanimous in favor.
On December 3, 2017, this eclectic group of people voted to call themselves “Renewal Church”. God was doing a new thing!
On Palm Sunday, March 25, 2018, it was announced that land was secured, and on Easter Sunday, April 1, 2018, a vote was held to begin the building process. 200 people voted in favor, affirming the vision and leadership of Renewal Church to build at 2335 Appy Lane, Apopka.
Renewal Church cultivates an environment and community for all to engage with the Spirit of God in a real and intimate way, and to connect to the Power of God through His Word and His Wisdom.
Renewal Church is currently still meeting above Rita's Ice Cream at 515 North Park Avenue, Apopka (Sundays at 10 am), and is grateful and amazed by all that God continues to do. We’d love for you to join us on this journey!
