Proclaiming Jesus
through Catholic Renewal
and Evangelization

Renewal Ministries fosters renewal and evangelization in the Catholic Church by helping people both know the personal love of God in Jesus and grow in holiness. We seek to proclaim Christ through our weekly television program, The Choices We Face; our daily radio programs, Food for the Journey and Fire on the Earth; our i.d.9:16 young adult outreach; parish missions; seminars and conferences; mission work in more than 25 countries; and books, CDs, and DVDs. Our aim is to strengthen and equip Catholics for evangelization and ministry in the power of the Holy Spirit. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

Our Story

Renewal Ministries has striven since 1980 to proclaim the message: “God Is.” This video captures the core of our mission to set the hearts of both God’s faithful and those who do not yet know Him on fire with the Holy Spirit. From Ralph’s moving meeting with Pope John Paul II, to our first open door for mission work in Lithuania, this story is a clarion call to the great need to proclaim Jesus in today’s world.
