Operation: Take the Land deployment to CRI Mission Base is Open to Churches, Youth Groups and Volunteers
Crisis Response International is excited to announce the Operation: Take the Land Deployment has been opened up to churches, youth groups, and volunteers who want to help CRI prepare the new missions base in Blue Ridge, VA for thousands of missionary responders to be trained and sent to the nations of the earth.
“We’re excited about engaging with churches, youth groups, and missions committees to get people engaged in this work of reaching the harvest in crisis,” said Sean Malone, Director of CRI. “We love the local church and believe there is great synergy in serving together in fulfilling the Great Commission.”
The theme for this deployment is found in the book of Joshua,
Joshua instructed the leaders of the people: “Go through the camp and command the people, ‘Prepare your supplies, for within three days you will cross the Jordan River and begin the conquest of the land the Lord your God is ready to hand over to you.’” Joshua 1:10-11
The ministry is in process of closing on the 84-acre property with over 20 structures that need to be renovated and repurposed for student housing, prayer room, training space, and warehousing.
“We have an urgent need for people to come and be a part of this important work,” said Malone.
Work projects needing to be done on the missions base includes painting, carpentry, renovations, gardening, landscaping, and cleaning. For all details and how to sign up for the Take the Land deployment, click here.
In addition to funding, the ministry has additional needs for paint, hot water tanks, LED lighting, and flooring. Additional items the ministry needs can be found here.
CRI is getting ready for the kick off of it’s spring semester at the new missions base where it is going to be hosting key disaster relief and mercy missions trainings this spring that you don’t want to miss, including the 11 week ARC school, an opportunity for those called to full-time missions to get prepared and sent to the nations.
