Annual Report and Budget
Christian Reformed World Missions
For over 100 years Christian Reformed World Missions (CRWM) has been helping Christian Reformed Churches fulfill the Great Commission. CRWM partners with people, churches, and organizations to extend Christ's reign among the nations.
Christian Reformed World Missions has more than 200 missionaries serving in over 20 countries, and through partnerships, our work extends to more than 40 countries. We focus our efforts around the world on four areas:
Multiplying Believers and Churches
Small house churches are developing across Guadalajara, Mexico as people share the Gospel with their family, friends, and neighbors. Christian Reformed World Missions missionaries support this movement through direct evangelism and training and mentoring church planters. Over the last seven years, almost 150 people are believed to have become new believers through house groups connected to World Missions.
Equipping and Connecting Leaders
The Cambodian church, while growing, is still small and young. Strong leaders are needed to nurture and urge the church to fuller, deeper growth. Through leadership programs like Timothy Leadership Training, Cambodian church leaders are being built up to guide believers to following Christ.
Reaching Teachers and Students with a Biblical Worldview
Interest in Christian education has risen in Africa, Asia, and Latin America alongside interest in Christianity. But in many areas, Christian teachers and administrators have had little training on what it means to practice their faith in the classroom. A new CRWM-developed teacher-training curriculum, Educational Care, is helping these teachers discover and apply Christ-centered educational principles.
Strengthening Churches and Organizations
Christian Reformed World Missions missionaries work in and with schools, seminaries, and churches across the world. At Sárospatak Reformed Theological Academy in Hungary, CRWM missionaries help train leaders for the Hungarian Reformed Church (HFC). After the fall of communism 20 years ago, most HFC pastors were middle-aged or elderly. Today, the church has a healthy combination of pastors and other leaders of all ages.
