Raymond and Christa love to be active, travel and be involved in anything creative. The thing they love most about Renovate is the compelling vision and sense of community. They believe the Gospel is at the very heart of the vision of Renovate Church. They believe the Gospel is the center of purpose for the Church, which can be found in Isaiah 61:1-4. They seek to see individuals and families rebuilt, restored and reestablished. They love how intentional Renovate Church is about building community and supporting one another. To them, it’s very clear the church is focused on loving God and loving people!
