Our Approach to the New Evangelization
Evangelization matters! It is the Church’s mission, and it represents a special responsibility for leaders. How can leaders help baptized Catholics embrace their role in passing on the flame of faith and bringing Christ’s warmth and light to all?
RENEW International presents Be My Witness, a Christ-centered, Spirit-led approach to transforming parishes and forming disciples for the New Evangelization. Be My Witness draws its inspiration from The Joy of the Gospel, Pope Francis’ landmark document on evangelization.
Be My Witness gets the conversation started in the parish about the single most important topic facing our Church today--evangelization.
It gives parish leaders the process and tools to build an ever-widening circle of conversion and commitment in two integrated phases.
- Phase 1 equips parish staff, leaders, and pastoral councils to lead mission-focused change.
- Phase 2 engages and forms parishioners as missionary disciples, ready to become partners in the New Evangelization.
The results are the pastoral plans and motivation needed to transform the parish into a “center of constant missionary outreach.”

I invite everyone to be bold and creative in this task of rethinking the goals, structures, style, and methods of evangelization in their respective communities.
