Community Renewal believes that societies continue to collapse because we neglect the very foundation upon which those societies stand. This foundation is composed of persons connected together in many ways—it is a foundation of relationships.

When relationships are ignored or taken for granted, they diminish. As history has shown, this can and does happen to whole societies. Disintegrating relationships bring about collapse on a massive scale. It has happened time and again and is the primary reason for the decline cycle of past civilizations.

We believe the answer lies in a simple rule of life: give positive, committed and intentional attention to a relationship and it will grow stronger and stronger.

Community Renewal’s unique breakthrough is the development of a measurable and transformative model which applies this rule of life to whole cities. This model reconstructs the relational foundation and reverses disintegration. This results in powerfully renewed communities.
