The CRC IN Myanmar
CRC Churches International is affiliated with a number of home churches, a Bible College, a Bible School and an Evangelism School in Myanmar.
Sharing the gospel house to house has been a successful evangelism tool in Myanmar. There is a collective vision to reach the nations with the gospel by creating and training disciples to continue the work of God in their own communities.
In addition to this, Portlife Church in Adelaide partners with a pastor from Myanmar to assist formerly at-risk children. The Myanmar Project has been running for several years in Mandalay. For further information please visit their website.
