Be trained and ready to respond with hope and healing when people need it the most. Learn how you can bring relief and release God’s love when tragedy strikes. Here are the ways to receive Crisis Response Training:


Held 2-3 times a year at our mission base in Virginia, Crisis Response Boot Camp will train and equip you to deploy in God’s love and power in times of disaster.

You will acquire hands-on disaster relief skills and discover how to weave your passions, knowledge, and callings into the context of crisis response ministry. Boot Camp certifies you as an official CRI Responder (Disaster Relief Volunteer) and makes you eligible for our relief deployments.

Boot Camp is a transformational experience that will cause you to grow deeper in your walk with God and connect you with a global tribe of passionate believers who want to help others when needed most.


Host us in your city for our signature One-Day Disaster Response Training! Whether you’re a pastor and want your congregation to be ready for crisis or have a large group interested in becoming CRI Responders, we would love to serve you in this way.

If you are tired of watching tragic events unfold and wish you knew what to do and how to really help, this training is designed to equip participants to meet the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of people in crisis in the power of the Holy Spirit.


We understand that attending Boot Camp is a valuable investment of time and resources that not everyone can make. Our online training, Course 1 delivers the core teaching and essential fundamentals of crisis response.

Once you pass Course 1 and clear a background check, you will become a credentialed CRI Responder and Disaster Relief Volunteer. You will then be eligible to sign-up for deployment.

Our online training academy has several course offerings, including chaplaincy training, and serves as an excellent refresher course.
