Dr. Brenda Salter-McNeil
President, Salter-McNeil and Associates
“ReNew Partnerships provides outstanding opportunities for people to learn from top multi-ethnic experts and practitioners in personal, practical, and interactive ways.”
Dr. Michael Emerson
Co-Director, Kinder Institute for Urban Research “Racial issues are complex, and essential to address. ReNew Partnerships is a treasure chest of knowledge, tools, and expertise to help us move into a multiethnic/multiracial future. I refer pastors and ministry leaders to their training resources almost daily.”
Dr. David Anderson
Senior Pastor of Bridgeway Community Church
“I’m excited and encouraged by the great work that ReNew Partnerships is doing to equip Christian leaders with the on-going coaching and resourcing they need to be successful in building multi-ethnic organizations.”
Director of Multi-ethnic Programs at Biola University
“Renew Partnerships has provided workshops on our campus with solid biblical foundations and practical applications. They have been invaluable for our students.”
Director of Program & Staff Development with City on a Hill
“ReNew Partnerships has given us effective and affordable training tools for our Board of Directors and staff. We have used multiple resources from ReNew, all of which have proven to help generate conversation and thought on issues of diversity.”
Dr. Michelle Loyd-Paige
Dean for Multicultural Affairs at Calvin College
“We have used ReNew Partnerships’ e-learning for class assignments and faculty/staff professional development. I highly recommend the training. It is not only cost effective, but it is also a valuable tool for starting (and energizing) needed conversations about diversity, inclusion, and reconciliation.”
Dean of Students, North Central University
“ReNew Partnerships created a safe environment for our students to relate and discuss often-intimidating issues. I especially appreciated the variety in the content (Bible, personal stories, facts and figures, etc), as it connected with a diverse group of people.”
Coord. of Multicultural Student Advancement, The Master’s College
“Renew Partnerships has greatly assisted The Master’s College in developing cultural and ethnic unity on our campus. The workshops have given us the necessary resources we need for effective training, and provided a healthy gauge for the breadth of our institution’s diversity initiatives.”
