About NewWay Ministries
To ignite a revolution in relationships, a new way to live that explores the real battle in our souls and frees us to value intimacy with God more than blessings from God. It’s a new way that’s as old as the Bible. It’s what following Jesus is all about.
NewWay Ministries, based in Denver, Colorado was formed in 2002 by Dr. Larry Crabb. It was birthed out of the passionate conviction that there is a new way to live made possible by the New Covenant that must become better known.
NewWay Ministries (a non-profit ministry) joins with others excited about spiritual formation and authentic community to help ignite a revolution in how Christians live, think, and relate.
That revolution requires a new paradigm for understanding and living the new way of the Spirit. We need to learn to relate intimately with each member of the Trinity and with each other in ways that stir up our Spirit-implanted appetite for God until it becomes the ruling passion of our lives.
NewWay Ministries seeks to introduce people to this new way of living, thinking, and relating that only the gospel makes possible. Our intended contribution to this revolution occurs through three distinct ministries:
- Intensive Training
Dr. Crabb’s earlier books reflected his commitment to biblical counseling, which focused on a biblical understanding of various life areas, such as marriage and manhood. Now, drawing on all that he has previously written, Larry is zeroing in on three topics:
- Encounter—what it means to experience God.
- Transformation—what it takes to become like Christ.
- Community—what real community is and what its role is in helping us experience God and be formed spiritually.
It is our prayer that NewWay Ministries (NWM) will be used by God to encourage the body of Christ to live the NewWay together, in relationships.
To equip followers of Jesus to ENTER THE BATTLE for the souls of those they love, the battle to resist the Old Way and live the New Way.
“I want you to know how much I am struggling for you…
that you may know the mystery of God, namely Christ.”

To awaken and nourish our affection for God until deep passion for Him rules our lives, freeing us to relate like God to others and to endure all hardship with hope.
“I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing
greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake
I have lost all things. I consider them rubbish that
I may gain Christ.”
