The present organizational structure of CRM is aimed at creating space for CRM staff to live out the unique call of God on their lives to empower leaders and make disciples among the nations.
Our primary building block is a “team” where individuals live and minister in community and with mutual commitment. These teams are grouped into “collectives” where like vision and function encourage shared learning and collaboration. A variety of support functions and ministry initiatives intersect with these collectives to create an environment in which creativity and disciplined collaboration can thrive.
As a result of this structure:
- Artificial limitations to ministry are minimized and apostolic freedom is fueled.
- Energy is focused outwardly because of greater internal clarity.
- People can vigorously pursue individual calling, while being fully committed to something larger than themselves.
Collectives are organized around four primary ministry functions that are supported by cross-organizational initiatives. Read below for descriptions of each.
Teams that fuel missional momentum in churches and their leaders through specialized skills and training.
Teams that are called to a particular people group or place, usually cross-culturally, to make disciples and develop indigenous leaders to guide them.
Teams that pursue a clear missional vision within a specific neighborhood from the unique posture of shared life and community.
Teams that sacrificially minister together among the poor and marginalized through shared commitments and rhythms that follow the tradition of historic church orders.
CRM's cross-organizational initiatives include such things as:
- Staff Development and Care
- Prayer Training
- Disciple Making Movements
- Women of Influence
- Administrative Support
- And more...
