CRM Canada
Empowering Leaders

Values

In who we are, what we do, and how we operate, CRM Canada values character, relationships, and mission, all thoroughly invigorated by spiritual passion.

Character

Expressed through integrity … Biblical integrity should permeate every aspect of how we live, minister, and operate as an organization.

Expressed through excellence … Excellence means “doing things right the first time” for the leaders we empower, the employee we serve, and the partners who trust us…so that the name of God is renowned among the nations.”

Expressed through clear expectations … In who we are and whom we recruit, there is a mutual commitment to clearly articulated expectations, privileges, and responsibilities.

Relationships

That empower through coaching and mentoring … We pursue ministry that is profoundly relational and, where advantageous, incarnational. We are biased toward informal, life-on-life relationships in the trenches of everyday experience.

That are grace-filled and real … As wounded, broken individuals in need of grace, we are drawn to one another in relationships that are transparent and real. We are a people who desire to live as instruments of grace to each other as well as the leaders we empower.

Expressed through clear expectations … In who we are and whom we recruit, there is a mutual commitment to clearly articulated expectations, privileges, and responsibilities.

That thrive in community … As an essential component of genuine, biblical Christianity, community is expressed in several ways in CRM CANADA. First, we desire to minister in teams where harmonious and complimentary relationships can flourish. Second, we catalyze and shape communities of transformation among church planters, pastors, lay leaders, younger leaders, and among the poor.

Mission

That is apostolically driven … We are driven to multiply and reproduce who we are, our apostolic calling, and the vision we hold in common. We are committed to Christ’s purposes in a lost world and we are unequivocal in our obedience to his final command.

That is creative and effective … While truth never changes, how it is articulated and proclaimed must be adapted to the times, the settings, and the cultures in which it is engaged. Therefore, we seek new, innovative means for empowering leaders, and we value the discovery of fresh paradigms of effective ministry and mission.

That is adaptable and relevant … As we cross cultural, social, economic, or linguistic barriers to serve the Church, we are committed to ministry that is appropriately contextualized and culturally sensitive.

That is prophetic … In nominal contexts, we will be voices for evangelism, renewal, and the creation of innovative structures to sustain and reproduce spiritual vitality. Among fellow believers, we will speak prophetically and challenge the church to a missional commitment and lifestyle.

Spiritual Passion

Characterized by intimacy with Christ … We believe the living, abiding presence of Jesus is the indispensable ingredient for leadership and the sole sufficiency for who we are and what we do.

Characterized by intentional spiritual formation … We believe that effective ministry flows out of being and is useless apart from the anointing of Almighty God. We are intentional about our own spiritual formation, and foundational to all we do is imparting this commitment to the leaders we serve.

Characterized by biblical obedience … We believe such spirituality must be firmly grounded in the authority of the Bible and an unwavering willingness to obey the clarion call of Scripture.
