Community Renewal invites the whole body of Christ to take the whole gospel to the whole city in order to demonstrate "our good works and glorify our Father who is in heaven."
Community Renewal's mission is holistic and for the common good in that all needs and all people matter to God. Believers are encouraged to use their gifts and talents to serve God in our community to bring about "the shalom" of the city (Jeremiah 29:7).
Community Renewal does not exist solely for the spiritual purpose of evangelism or the building of a local church, although that may be a consequence of good Christian community development. Its motivation is to serve Christ, giving in a way that is not dependent on reciprocity from others (Luke 6:30-38) but expecting the greater reward from God Himself.
Also, our works will often be done in collaboration with people of good will who may not share a common faith but partner on a common mission.

Randy's Commentary on
to Tucson Pastors
St Andrews Presbyterian Church is committed to being a
missional church in Tucson. They are a supply church, which
means that they supply resources to others in our community. I
would say that they
are one of the most generous churches in Tucson. Since
Community Renewal started partnering with them we have seen
them actively reach out to support those on the front lines of
ministry. They have
been a great support to many para-church organizations that
minister to the “at risk” in our community. They have stepped
up to also support small churches in bad neighborhoods that
lack resources. We at Community Renewal are proud to
acknowledge and recognize the wonderful work that God is doing
through the local church of St. Andrews Presbyterian. We count
it a privilege and an honor to be ministry partners in our
community and are thankful for their leadership and
generosity. We would recommend this church if you are looking
for a suburban church that cares about our city and wants to
see the Kingdom of God manifest. Learn more about St Andrew's
