Our Story

We are excited about what God has done and continues to do with the ministry of Renovation Church. Check out a brief overview of our story!

In April of 2009, Lead Pastor David Sorn followed his calling to start a brand-new church and moved on from his role as Pastor of High School Ministries at Constance Free Church in Andover to begin the process of starting Renovation Church in Blaine. From April to September 2009, Pastor David began preparing, planning, praying, and gathering people to help plant the church. Renovation Church officially launched on October 4, 2009, in the gym of Northpoint Elementary School. The launch of Renovation Church was quite successful, and after “Launch Sunday,” Renovation Church settled into a church of just over 100 people. The church then began to grow, and hasn’t stopped growing since. Renovation Church became a reality in Blaine due to the generosity of its two parent churches: enCompass Church in Roseville and Grace Fellowship in Brooklyn Park.

As we continued to grow, we knew we could not stay (or fit) in the gym at Northpoint Elementary School forever. In the fall of 2014, we began raising money to purchase land. In August 2017, we purchased land right next to the SE corner of Lexington Ave & 125th Ave in Blaine. We then began to raise funds so we could one day have a permanent building of our own. Construction on our brand-new building began in 2020, and we officially opened our building on September 19th, 2021!

Since opening our building in 2021, God has continued to provide amazing opportunities and growth that we could not have expected. In February 2023, we raised over $5 Million in 3-year pledges to expand our building and reach more people in our community for Christ. We are temporarily meeting at Northpoint Elementary School on Sunday mornings, as Phase 2 of our building is currently under construction. We will return to our building for services on October 1st!
