CRM offers online prayer support. Let your ministry partners 

pray for you. 

 

A
Plea se interact with God about these important issues

Praise
-Easter reports were amazing!  Almost 30,000 people attended CRM churches. Almost 300 first time decisions and 300 baptisms.  Praise the Lord! Thanks for all the hard work that went into inviting people to celebrate our risen King!

-Summer mission team trips are ramping up.  Its so exciting that CRM partners can make such a big difference around the globe.

-The Floyd Hill property has sold. Funds are now available to start and strengthen churches through CRM ministries.

-LEAD teams are meeting in the next couple of weeks.  Regional clusters of pastors gathering to Learn, Encourage, Achieve and Dream.

-Crow Hill Bible Church, Bailey CO, is offering a Timothy Initiative training center for their attendees. The focus is on training disciples to make disciples. Current attendees of the class have already led people to the Lord and one couple is starting a micro church in early June.

Petition
- Pray that God will bring peace to Sandy Hays, Rock Creek, as she grieves the loss of her grandfather.

-Pray for the sale of the Gering Baptist property. Proceeds will enable our movement to continue to push ahead with our vision to start 100 churches in 10 years. 

-Pray for ministry families that are facing health issues. Ask the Great Physician to bring miraculous healing according to His will, 

-Pray for Bethel University as they search for a new president. President Jay Barnes has served the university well. These are challenging days for Christian higher education. Ask the Lord to bring the right person to boldly lead Bethel into the future.

-Please pray for Church Start director Marlan Mincks and his wife Terry.  They would love to relocate to Denver, but will need to find ministry employment to supplement their part time salary with Converge Rocky Mountain.  Marlan has made a huge difference in our church planting efforts. His impact would grow if we can get him into our district full time.

CRM PRAYS OPPORTUNITY...
SEPTEMBER 13-14, 2019 | 1ST BANK CENTER , DENVER
An opportunity for Colorado churches to transform their neighborhoods with prayer. (Coming soon to other states near you!)


What if every person in your neighborhood encountered Jesus' love?
We Love: Colorado  is all about helping your church connect with more people face-to-face...not with an agenda, but by listening, offering a prayer, or initiating a spiritual conversation-so that more people have the opportunity to encounter Jesus' love.  The goal is for your church to bring a team of 5 people to the training event September 13 and 14. Every church is asked to then "own" the neighborhood around their church and intentionally connect with homes on a regular basis.  If 500 churches attend, we will be able to pray for every neighborhood in Colorado.  Future training events are in the works for surrounding states. Paul is trying to get the national organizers to open the CO event up to all CRM churches. Imagine a prayer force moving out from our churches to reach the Rockies. 
An informational ZOOM conference for CRM pastors is being set up with Pastor David Beidel from New York City. When a day/time is confirmed we will let you know. David's church began to pray for every neighborhood on Staten Island and God's love transformed the island. The same thing can happen in the Rockies.  Our local point person is Pastor Robin Holland at Living Hope Bible Church. He can be reached at:
pastorlhbc@livinghopebaptist.net

There is an early bird rate and a church rate if you register as a group. Enter code: DAVE20 for 20% off event cost.  Click the link below get the full picture.  This will be a great opportunity to unleash the power of prayer in your congregation and in your community!

Crow Hill Bible Church Hosts Leadership Conference
Organic to Organized -Elevating Church Culture Through Leadership
JUNE 8, 2019 Crow Hill Bible Church

Every growing church hits a tipping point: what do you do when
y ou've outgrown your structure? Your staff and volunteers can no longer keep up. Your church is stuck in a rut and growth has hit a plateau. Or maybe growth is out-pacing your capacity. There's not enough time in the day to check all the boxes on your to-do list.
Where do you go from here? O

Organic to Organized is all about elevating your church culture through leadership no matter where it is now. Organic culture is a great way to start, but it can only take your church so far. We want to empower your church staff and lay leaders to understand your past and see your future. We'll share our tools with you so you can break through the barriers in front of you.
Come learn from the experience of a church that has grown over 400% in the last 3 years as we made the shift from Organic to Organized!
