Synod 2015 approved joining Christian Reformed Home Missions (CRHM) and Christian Reformed World Missions (CRWM) with a unified, global mandate. Since then, the agencies have worked toward forming a unified global mission agency. We look forward to returning to Synod 2017 to celebrate the beginning of the New Mission Agency, but above all, we praise God for the opportunities ahead and we look to Him for wisdom in the challenges to come with this transition process. Thank you for allowing us to serve as partners with you and the denomination to bring the Gospel holistically to the people of North America and the world, and drawing them into fellowship with Christ and His church. Thank you for continuing to support our work together in missions with prayer and financial support.
Home Missions and World Missions will be completing this fiscal year (ending in June 2017) as two separate agencies with two separate budgets. Both agencies still have financial and ministry commitments this year, and Synod 2017 is expected to give a final endorsement of the transition to a new mission agency. Behind-the-scenes work to bring the two agencies together is continuing, but a lot of important steps need to be completed before making the “official” transition.
We see this joining as a time to work together in new ways and identify new ministry opportunities that may not have been possible before. We hope to continue current î ministry and grow new ministry, and we pray that churches and individuals will join us in supporting that growth.
We will continue to update this page with news and announcements throughout the process of joining these two agencies.
