Backpacks, Basketball, And Changed Lives In The Philippines

A team of CRM leaders from Colorado, and Prairie Hills Church-Lusk, WY just returned from an amazing mission trip to the Philippines. CRM believes local churches, no matter their size, can make a global impact. We also believe that participation in an international mission experience is transformational in a believer's faith development. We are also committed to making long-term commitments to countries and their national church leaders. Over the last decade, CRM churches have invested in unreached parts of the Philippines and gifted Filipino leaders. We have carried out multiple trips that provided support, training, and encouragement for villagers and ministry leaders in Mindanao, Manila, Cebu, Bohol, and beyond.

On our recent visit, we took outrigger canoes to visit outer island tribes around Bohol. We interacted with children through VBS activities and passed out backpacks and school supplies. We used basketball as a bridge to connect with guys in the community, draw a large crowd, and then share the Gospel at halftime. Many team members also preached and shared our faith stories in local churches. Paul and Jan led a seminar on spiritual warfare at their regional pastor’s conference. One of our young team members also spent the day helping at a local medical clinic.

The team was amazed at the contentment and joy we found in the villages we visited. It was a life-changing trip for everyone. We want to thank all of you who supported this mission team and provided funding for the backpacks and basketballs we distributed.

CRM churches provide a variety of mission trip experiences to help believers grow. “Send believers across the street and around the world to proclaim the Gospel,” is part of our overall S3 strategy. You are encouraged to make it a personal goal to participate in a cross-cultural, overseas mission experience in the next five years. God will use it to build your faith and build your compassion for lost people around the globe.

CRM is excited to partner with...

Moms, we see you. You are on the front lines of parenting every single day. Whether you're up nursing your baby at night, driving the drop-off lanes in the morning, processing through their college applications, or helping them navigate adulthood, motherhood is a full-time, lifetime calling. 

What if you had just one day for you? A day to gather with other amazing women and remember all that is true:  That God sees you right where you are. That you are not alone in your motherhood journey. That you have incredible value and worth. And your story, no matter what it is, absolutely matters for yourself and the next generation. The Madness of Motherhood conference is for you.

We invite you to join us for this powerful one-day event for moms of all ages and stages of parenting. We will have encouraging and equipping general sessions led by local and national speakers, incredible worship, wonderful food, gifts, giveaways, and so much more.

We can't wait to see you there!

Harvest Baptist Welcomes New Pastor

The congregation of Harvest Baptist, Boulder, CO is excited to announce the arrival of their new pastor, Kyle Bendorf. Kyle has served at several churches, including Conference Baptist in Evergreen, CO. Kyle is also part of the faculty at Flatirons Academy. Please pray for Kyle, his wife Sherry, and their daughter Anna as they begin a new ministry with the Harvest family.

Student-faculty duo research the virtual workplace

Using an Edgren Scholarship, Triston Thomas ’23, a communication studies major, and Professor of Communication Studies Peggy Kendall teamed up this past summer to research how remote workers really feel in the virtual workplace and what assumptions their managers can’t make anymore. Their research provided insightful findings—and leaves opportunities for further study—but the two say working together as a student-professor team is equally as beneficial.

“Just the constant guidance and connections she has provided for me has been a blessing,” Thomas says of Kendall. “Also, the conversations we have had just about life itself have been fun as we become closer to each other.” Having him as a student, Kendall appreciated Thomas’ ability to think deeply, ask good questions, and see things from different perspectives. Those skills really came to light during their research. “Triston saw patterns I totally missed. He used phrases and titles to describe themes that suddenly brought everything together,” Kendall says. “It was fun to have a thought partner as we analyzed our data.” Click link to read more....
