Online Crisis Response Training

Do you want to help others when they need it the most?

CRI training is like no other. Regardless of how often you deploy with us, our training is designed to equip you to meet the urgent physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of people affected by crisis and disaster through the power of the Holy Spirit.

For your safety and the people we serve and continuity of our mission we require all new volunteers to complete online Crisis Response Training, Course 1 and clear a background check before deployment.

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  with us on relief operations around the world!

We have trained over 10,000 people just like you who are moved with compassion to bring relief and minister God’s love when tragedy strikes.

Check out our additional online courses below to deepen your crisis response knowledge or to even become a chaplain with us.

Refer to our calendar to find our live event or you can also request a training event to be hosted at your church.

New volunteers must complete Course 1 to deploy
