Applications now being accepted.

We are calling forth pioneers to help us establish the new CRI Blue Ridge Base. Come and be part of our staff and help with year-round training events, missions schools, conferences, and deployments! We are looking for those who want to be part of a presence-based, missional community as we build a farm, prayer room and a fully functioning mission base, training camp and conference center. Enjoy the benefits of living on base, being part of a team and deploying to and from the CRI Base.

The Lord is moving in a new way in this season for Crisis Response International, which is requiring us to grow our teams of volunteers and staff for a variety of different positions. If you have been feeling the tug on your heart and asking yourself how you can be more involved with CRI, this is your opportunity. (We have some off-base roles)

As a full-time missionary staff, you can make use of our special personal fundraising platform to invite friends, family, and your church to help support you as a CRI Missionary and you will receive special training and leadership support.


PLEASE NOTE: All staff are required to be CRI trained and to have deployed with CRí references or must have graduated from the ARC School. No positions are paid and all positions are responsible to raise their own support and may do so through CRí. Most positions require residency on or near the Mission Base just north of Roanoke, Virginia. Please send all questions to

Here Are The Details

Those that are living on-base are expected to work full-time in the agreed upon capacity supporting one of the many departments (see below). The cost of living on the camp per month is $199.00 for RV parking, $299.00 for dorms and $399.00 for a shared bedroom. This includes three meals per day, WiFi in designated areas, electric, water, etc.

It is our heart that we would be a blessing to the greater Roanoke area. That said, each missionary should know they are led to the surrounding area and expect to have community involvement outside of the base. Finding a local church body of some kind, making friends and enjoying the city and surrounding mountains are examples of this. CRí is an incredible family, but we greatly encourage our family members to be involved with relationships outside of CRí when pursuing a move to this area.

We believe that every person is gifted with unique talents and abilities that line up with the passions that God has given them. With that in mind, we believe that there is a place for everyone to be involved!

Are you interested in coming to serve on the base but this isn’t the right season for you to come on as staff? Or maybe would you like to just hang out on the Mission Base to see if CRí culture is a fit for you? Then check out our Mission Allies Program which plugs you into projects and areas of service on the base. You are welcome to visit for a couple of days or even a couple of weeks to spend time praying, worshiping, working and fellowshipping alongside the CRí family. Let us know what skills you have along with what areas you are interested in and you can help pioneer this new season with us!
