Church Resource Ministries (CRM) is the parent organization of VitalChurch. The organization’s mission is to create movements of committed followers of Jesus by pioneering new ground among the unreached and unchurched, bringing lasting transformation among the poor, and mobilizing the Church for mission.
CRM is an international mission agency that starts and strengthens churches around the world. They accomplish this in the following three ways:
- Empowering leaders and making disciples that revitalize and extend the impact of the church
- Taking new ground beyond the reach of the church by making disciples in hard to reach places
- Bringing hope of change to the poor and marginalized so that communities are transformed and disciples are made among the nations.
CRM envisions movements of fresh, authentic expressions of the Church, pioneered by godly leaders, fired by a passion for their world, compelled to multiply their lives and ministry, so that the name of Jesus is renowned among the nations.
Today, more than 500 CRM missionaries live and serve in more than 80 countries around the world. They have launched ten global affiliate organizations in different nations and cultural contexts.
