As a dynamic community of both scholars and learners, Calvin Seminary serves as an incubator for growth in churches locally, nationally and globally. Through the work of the Calvin Institute of Christian Worship, we are leaders in the worship renewal movement around the U.S. and Canada.

Calvin Seminary is also leading a renewal effort focused on congregations which are seeing their memberships plateau or decline over time through the Institute for Global Church Planting and Renewal.

Worship Renewal Grants

For over ten years, the Calvin Institute of Christian Worship has offered grants to foster renewal around topics related to worship in the church. Hundreds of congregations in the U.S. and Canada have completed worship renewal projects that range from intergenerational Scripture memorization to incorporating hip-hop music into urban church ministries.

Renewal Labs

Set your church on a path to revitalization through a Renewal Lab offered by the Institute for Global Church Planting and Renewal. This two-year program for pastors and their leadership teams includes quarterly four-day intensive learning sessions on Calvin Seminary’s campus. During the course of the journey, your team will develop a plan to grow missionally-focused church communities that are epicenters of God’s redemptive love. Learn more
