Renewal took off in 2008 when a group of Christian students gathered to discuss creation care. Since then, the network has grown to include various Christian colleges from across the nation including Eastern University, Moody Bible College, Asbury College, Seattle Pacific University and many more.

They say, “For the students of Renewal, caring for God’s creation isn’t just a burden and a responsibility – it’s a blessing and an invitation to live in right relationship with our Creator.”

Seeking practical ways to care for the earth, Renewal participates in planting community gardens, cleaning streams and restoring habitats and working with college administrators to decrease emissions.

From the website, it is obvious that the group is ambitious and passionate to make a positive impact. Their call for involvement is difficult to resist.
