Results From Our Shared Ministry

The Christian Reformed Church in North America has covenanted to doing ministry together as a denomination. By pooling our resources and prayers, we have been used by God for ministry around the world in ways that no one person or congregation could do on its own.

The stories and reports included in the 2017 Annual Ministry Report are examples of how you and other members of the Christian Reformed Church are working together to be the hands and feet of Christ.
