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.

Every Day of My Life [Video]

I started riding motorcycles as a young guy, and I was good at it. The first time I threw a leg over a motorcycle, I was in love. “Oh my gosh, this is it!” It was a long time from that moment until I got saved. I started riding when I was about 12, and I got saved when I was 28. During those years I was having a lot of fun and being coached by some really good people. I had the opportunity to train and gain a lot of experience in being highly mobile over all kinds of terrain: race tracks, desert racing, cross-country. I didn’t realize God was equipping me with what I now call the spiritual gift of mobility. It was exactly what I would need to be able to navigate Cambodia.

Taking Your Thoughts to God: The Power of an Evening Examen

Why is it that the minute we lay down, everything unresolved in our lives comes to the surface? Every mistake we made that day, the reliving of that argument and what we wish we had said, the regret with how we should have parented that child differently but now it’s too late, the running of numbers to see how the bills will get paid, and on and on.

Called to Listen: Engaging the God Who Speaks [Resource]

If you go back through the Gospels and study all the different ways Jesus instructed his followers, surprisingly you won’t find a single passage outlining the best Bible reading plan. Though Jesus often quoted scripture and clearly emphasized its importance and authority, he never held it up as the primary way his disciples should hear and receive God’s truth.

What he did instead is simply remarkable—he gave them his Spirit.

"The Energy Has Changed": A Movemental Difference Through Prayer in L.A.

Last year I stepped into a new role as CRM’s Prime Intercession team leader. CRM has identified prayer as “critical in laying the foundation and creating the conditions for a movement to launch and thrive”; the name Prime conveys this unique and essential role of preparation.

Leading the Prime Intercession Team has helped me to see obstacles as opportunities to storm heaven for Kingdom breakthrough. In the past months, my team has seen some exciting breakthroughs in response to our prayers. Here's one remarkable example.

Blessed Are You [Video]

During World Wide Conference, Mark Thrash led us in a time of blessing one another. But first he spoke words of blessing over us, blessings modeled after the Beatitudes. The Beatitudes, he told us, were not conditions for who could be blessed, but claims that even people in the most unfortunate situations were truly blessed because of God's presence and the nearness of his Kingdom.

A Time to Speak Blessings

There is something different about intercession and speaking blessings. It’s a different position. It’s a different authority. It’s a different posture. And I think it’s something that God is restoring for this time...

Truth in the Inward Parts: What Happens in Inner Healing Prayer

Do you ever do anything or think anything, and wonder, “Why did I do that?” And it kind of hounds you—this way of thinking or way of acting. Sometimes we need to be set free. Healing prayer can set people free from unwanted thoughts, emotions, and actions.

Join Us for a Day of Prayer, October 17


Our Father in heaven,

hallowed be your name.
Your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
–Matthew 6:9-10–

When Jesus was teaching his disciples to pray, he started with something that he often talked about. He said, "Your kingdom come." But what does that mean for us today? At CRM, we believe that it means asking God to be King over our "patch," which is the bit of earth we inhabit, our homes, neighborhoods, and the people we work with. In prayer, we get to partner with God as he enters our time and space now to free the captives, heal the sick, bring freedom to the oppressed and hopeless, and transform hearts in Jesus's name.

When God Answers Prayer: A Miracle in the Refugee Camps of Lebanon

Aminah* fled to Lebanon with her family (her husband Kamal* and their five children) about eight months ago to escape the events of the war in Syria. I visited them and attended to their need of food by providing food parcels for the family over the coming visits. Through NEO and a partner church, we were able to provide help in paying rent and other necessities for them. I started building a relationship with them by visiting them on a monthly basis. I would speak to them about Jesus and his love during these visits. I introduced Christ as a personal savior and what he had done in my life as I followed him.
