Who We Are
Renew Chicago is a gift from Park Community Church to the city of Chicago. Renew became an independent nonprofit organization in 2018. We exhort Christians and others of good will to pray for our city’s welfare, educate ourselves on issues important to Chicago, and find a way to actively play a part on seeing it flourish. We raise volunteers and financial support for many partner ministries on the front line of building the goodness and greatness of Chicago.
