Statement of Purpose
Caribbean Resource Ministries is an interdenominational support organization whose purpose is to enhance the ministries of pastors, Sunday school teachers and other Christian leaders by providing enriching learning experiences, educational material and encouragement. Especially targeted are lay ministers in missions areas whose circumstances have prevented preparation in a Bible school or seminary.
Statement of Faith
We believe in God, the Creator and Sustainer of the universe, who is the Father of all who have through faith been spiritually reborn into his family; and in Jesus Christ, the Father's Son, by whose sacrificial death at Calvary complete salvation from all of sin's destruction was accomplished; and in the Holy Spirit who indwells believers giving spiritual life, knowledge, guidance, peace and joy.
We believe the Holy Bible, both Old and New Testaments, to be God's revelation to humanity of Himself: His Divine Nature, His demands upon all people, and His great love for them.
We believe the Church to be the members of the Body of Christ, spiritually alive and experiencing the benefits and trials of the Christian life.
And, we believe that God has commissioned the Church to communicate his love to all peoples of the world baptizing and discipling those who acknowledge faith in him.
Early and Continuing Ministries
Ministry Enhancement Seminars
CRM began to provide ministry training through intensive seminars in 1987. All
courses are taught by people well qualified in their respective fields. These
seminars are often presented as a cooperative effort with a seminary. Most
participants are bi-vocational pastors, Sunday school teachers and others filling
various roles in the church. The sessions not only better prepare the
participants for ministry, but result in renewed enthusiasm for their work.
Caribbean Resource Ministries has been "ministering to those who minister"
Since 1996, CRM has helped churches in the remote areas of Belize to establish Sunday schools where none had existed before. Prospective teachers from these congregations were recruited and trained in intensive workshops to prepare and teach lessons. CRM staff teachers modeled the concepts taught in the workshops by bringing the children of the village together for several days of "Everyday Sunday School". After the workshops, the teachers returned to their churches to begin their teaching ministry. The success of this approach has been phenomenal.
In conjunction with the Sunday school workshops, the CRM ministry teams
distributed Bibles door-to-door to every home in the villages where Sunday
schools are established. Having a Bible in the home enabled Sunday school
students to have personal devotions and prepare for upcoming lessons. Most
of these families had never before owned a Bible.
