What Home Missions Does (and Doesn’t Do)

| |

Home Missions serves Christian Reformed churches so that they can do the job of bringing the transforming message of salvation to North America.

Home Missions’ rightful place is “in the wings”—not center stage. Our job is to provide the resources and training and encouragement so that you, your small group, your church, and your classis will step out in faith to fulfill Christ’s mission.

It’s a partnership, ministry we do together, with the church getting top billing. Or as our new tagline says, we are “Following Christ. In Mission Together.”
