As an ordained minister for 18+ years, I have transitioned from pastoring a “church”, to pastoring a community. My role in this community is to help people access a long forgotten truth about their own identity. As accessible as this truth is to everyone, it takes some brave work to get there, and no one gets there by themselves. It takes community, and a willingness to take a good honest look at the ways we’ve sabotaged ourselves.
My heart is to walk people through this process in both individual and group settings. This can look like leading 12 step groups and enneagram workshops, one on one pastoral counseling, walking people through their grief work, encouraging people who have become disillusioned by their faith and belief structures, and living in my calling to follow Christ by telling the good news to the poor and participating in setting captives free.

Hi! I am Kelly Stewart Hall. I joined TRC’s Board of Directors in 2013, and grew from a full-time volunteer in October of 2015 to a co-Director position early in 2016 where I worked co-creatively to envision the community center, Steampunk Juice, and Re:Bar Cafe.
As an ordained Chaplain and Spiritual Director, I work closely with individuals and groups on their spiritual journey to know themselves and know themselves in relation to God and their place in the world. Spiritual Direction (as a title) can sound like you are going in to a spiritual advisor who is going to give you some answers, however in reality it is sitting with someone who is committed to hearing the still small voice within you.
As a creative writer and artist, I love to incorporate artistic expression along with other spiritual practices. We all have ways of expressing our joy and pain, our love and grief, and finding a modality that inspires the individual.

Hi everyone, I am Anita, the General Manager of Re:Bar Cafe, the love project of The Renewal Center, that has turned into a fully operational cafe serving Tomball and anyone who comes to visit.
My involvement with The Renewal Center began in 2015, when we were given the gift of a non-profit entity and the seed of a vision for its future. I was honored to be a part of the exciting times that followed with a group of people who were ready to let God’s dream unfold.
In 2018, after 18 years as an Early Childhood Educator, I started managing Re:Bar Cafe, when it became apparent that we needed someone to take that role as our little cafe became more popular.
I love every aspect of my role here. I particularly love getting to know our regular customers, meeting new people every day, and seeing our staff work together so seamlessly.
Re:Bar and The Renewal Center have brought me so much fulfillment and purpose and there is never a doubt that I am where I belong.
