MAKE NEW: The Expanding Gospel Movement Among Youth in Cambodia

CRM / Novo is a band of creative missionaries; determined, innovative, and responsive to the Spirit. We are sent to multiply movements of the gospel and to mobilize the church for mission. In everything we do, our hearts look forward to the day when all will be made new. Novo, it means ‘to make new.’

One of the stories that exemplifies this vision to multiply movements in creative ways, featured in CRM / Novo’s introduction video (see below), is a gospel movement in Asia: In Cambodia, when our staff saw that children living on the street loved to worship, they started a worship school. Now these youth have become musicians and leaders, bringing hope to the places they call home.

CRM / Novo shared a special video about this worship movement on the streets of Cambodia in 2017, but the movement didn’t stop there. It has expanded to other cities and flowed into a new youth church plant, where some of these youth are leaders.

Big News: We're Changing Our Name!

In the summer of 1980, our founders wrote these words about the name of their new organization: 

“We decided to settle on [the name] Church Resource Ministries … We felt we could always change somewhere in the future if necessary.”

When the CRM Communications team discovered this early document while in the beginning stages of our organizational rebrand project, we knew we were on the right track. We knew that it was time to make a change. Today, 38 years after that originating document, we are beyond excited to share with you that as of January 2019, we will have a new name.

Now, if you're a "just the facts" type, or if you're in a big hurry, feel free to zoom down to the bottom of this letter to get the specifics. But if you've got a minute or two, we'd like to share with you a little bit about how we got here...
