National Impact

Our CONVICTION is that TOGETHER we can make a significantly greater impact than alone - we're made for partnership!

CIC is ROOTED in the local church, but also has a NATIONAL vision.  In fact, every pastor - and church - should be engaged locally AND nationally.  At CIC, we have two primary ways we impact our nation for good - extending the Kingdom.  First, through the Center for National Renewal in Washington, DC; then, through, our humanitarian relief organization dedicated to our nation's first responders - THE LOCAL CHURCH.


The Center for National Renewal is a Christian, interdenominational, non-partisan organization who seeks to catalyze ideas and influencers for the work of national renewal, humanitarian initiatives, and common good.


Our Work - Renew the Nation with Us!


Prayer is the primary key for spiritual renewal in our nation. We gather locally and virtually for prayer in our nation's capital.

You can join our online National Renewal Prayer Team of more than 500,000 people.  Each week, you'll receive a unique email with specific prayer targets and information about what's happening in Washington, DC.

At CFNR, we bring people TOGETHER.  We facilitate opportunities for reconciliation and justice through conversation and strategic action.

CFNR works nationally from our headquarters just blocks from the US Capitol and locally to equip pastors and leaders in business to work for racial healing.

5 Principles of Reconciliation


Our mandate is to bring awareness to national issues that relate to Christians and answer current events from a biblical perspective.

Through student internship, DC Renewal Experience tours and civil engagement training, we hope to inspire the next generation of civic leaders.

Becoming the Leader that Changes the World


Strike the shepherd, and the sheep will be scattered...

— Dr. Mike Hayes is an organization of dozens of ministries and churches who understand the significance of getting pastors on their feet immediately following a disaster.  Our churches partner together, by pooling resources, so we are ready to provide aid to affected communities through local churches.

Churches have always been a type of ‘first responder’ to communities in crisis.

From practical needs being met through humanitarian aid to spiritual support through counseling and grief recovery, churches are anchors and touch-points in a community.  If the pastor of one of these vital outposts suffers devastation, he or she is unable to properly lead their church to respond.  If the church isn’t able to respond quickly and fully, then the community suffers.  CIC is committed to helping devastated  communities by resourcing local churches.
