Multiplying Apostolic Orgs

Conext 06

“It is astonishing that most Protestant missionaries … have been blind to the significance of the very structure within which they have worked. In this blindness, they have merely planted churches and have not effectively concerned themselves to make sure that the kind of mission structure within which they operate also be set up on the field.” – Missiologist Ralph Winter in “The Two Structures of God’s Redemptive Mission”

I just returned from London where I met with those who lead CRM’s ministry in eight nations where nationals are the leaders and nationals are in one stage or another in being sent as missionaries.

Rather than be a multi-national corporation, we have deliberately determined that CRM will evolve as an international partnership of apostolic entities which are the mission structures Winter describes.

We believe the the results will be exponentially powerful in the multiplication of new kinds of leaders for new kinds of churches all over the globe.

Pictured above are leaders from Venezuela, Hungary, U.K., Africa, the Middle East, Korea, the U.S. and Australia.
