Portland Seminary Establishes Partnership with


Renovare Logo


The Seminary team is excited to announce the establishment of a partnership with Renovaré Institute for Christian Spiritual Formation. Students who successfully complete the two year program of study at Renovaré will be eligible to count Renovaré credit toward Portland Seminary master's degree programs, for up to 14 credits worth of coursework.

Renovaré is a Christian nonprofit founded by Richard J. Foster, an alumnus of George Fox College. Renovaré models, resources, and advocates fullness of life with God experienced, by grace, through the spiritual practices of Jesus and of the historical Church.

Christian in commitment, ecumenical in breadth, and international in scope, Renovaré helps people in becoming more like Jesus. Renovaré publishes print and online resources, including books, articles, messages and podcasts. Retreats, spiritual formation groups, and educational initiatives like the two-year Renovaré Institute provide community and experience where that knowledge can move from head to heart.
