is an initiative to educate people about the intersection of race and the Gospel and mobilize them to cultivate racial justice and equity in their communities.
We are driven by the doctrine of “Imago Dei,” that all human beings are created in the image and likeness of God. In the face of racial unrest and division, we seek to remind our city and our world of this beautiful truth surrounding our Black brothers and sisters.
Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.Gen 1:26-27

Since 1908, an organization of Christian business executives and civic leaders have sought to examine and promote the moral and religious welfare of the city. Our key values are Freedom to live out our faith fully in all areas of our life, Civility in respecting and collaborating with those whose views differ from our own, and Action that we will constructively bring out the flourishing of Chicago and beyond.
Renew Chicago exists to inspire, educate, and mobilize our community to build the goodness and greatness of the city. We believe God compels us to raise both volunteers and funding for our on-the-ground partner ministries, and to elevate the Gospel into the conversation of critical issues important to Chicago.
