In 1985, after thirty-six years of pastoral ministry, most of which would have to be described as mediocre, I sensed an urgent direction from the Holy Spirit to curtail much of my professional routine and simply spend time with the Lord. I soon realized this hunger for God was of God Himself and not just religious fantasy. During the first few weeks of attempted obedience to this new call I was awarded more than once with unusual manifestations of Christ?s Presence. Every special visit deepened the conviction that He was making me a promise: “If you will major in just walking with Me, I will do three things for you: first, I will fill you anew with the Holy Spirit; second, I will teach you to pray; and finally, I will give you a vision of My church in these last days as I plan to revive it.”
Who We Are
Christian Renewal Ministries, Inc. is a donor-supported, evangelical, interdenominational, non-profit ministry committed to proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Our mission is to call believers back to divine conditions for revival: humility, prayer, intimacy, repentance, holiness, obedience and faith.
We work with Christian churches and organizations throughout the world to call people to faith in Christ, and to summon believers back to the Upper Room (Acts 2:1-4) for preparation for the desperately needed revival in our day.
Our ministries are presented in the following forms: The School of Prayer seminar, revival meetings, pastoral institutes, camp meetings; publication and distribution of books, tapes, CDs, and the quarterly Christian Renewal Journal; a daily radio broadcast called A Word On Revival; and a web site. Also, the Big Sky House of Prayer, in its infancy, operates in Bozeman, Montana one night each week in worship and intercession, concentrating on revival and other needs.
