¡@¡@Back in 1983, Hong Kong was shaken by the 1997 handover. Amid the turmoil,
local church leaders came and prayed together for the unity of the church. As a
result, the Hong Kong Church Renewal Movement (HKCRM) was born in 1985.
¡@¡@In 1988, we launched Mission Hong Kong 2000, providing direction,
strategy and models for churches to prepare for the future change.
¡@¡@In 1994, we merged with Hong Kong Evangelism 2000 to serve in spiritual renewal and pastoral renewal. Starting from 1994, we conducted the Hong Kong Church Survey every five years.
¡@¡@In 1996, we promoted and empowered a prayer ministry for the city, Reaching the city for Christ. Since 1996, we invited Ed Silvoso, Eddie & Alice Smith separately to lead local conferences and workshops.
Mission HK ¢w 2000
¡@¡@In 1997, we hosted the Marching in Unity Conference, helping local churches work with the realities of pre- and post-handover situations. We also hosted seminars on church planting and leadership development by inviting Dr. Robert E. Logan and David Chiu to speak to local pastors.
|¡@¡@HKCRM also provides supportive services for local pastors
and their families. We organized retreats to pastors, pastors¡¦ wives, and
Pastors' Retreat (Sept., 2003)
