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.

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 $250 for RV parking, $350 for dorms and $450 for a shared bedroom. This includes housing, 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!



We have created a new support structure for CRI Missionary Staff that includes new support raising tools, training and emotional/ spiritual support. There will be a quarterly class offered (for a fee) to CRí staff who live on or near the base wanting to learn more about support raising and how approach others about partnering with God’s plans for their mission within CRí.

The full-time CRI missionary staff fundraising tool is fully customizable and easy to use and share via email, text message, and social media. Learning how to fundraise is an essential skill that every missionary needs. We encourage you to invite your friends, family, and your church to help support you in your step of faith. We will help you along the way!

Simply click the link, enter your information, and you will be sent to a custom link to set up your fundraising page. It is very easy to track donations and you will be notified automatically when donations come in on your behalf. Your “Base Living Fees” will be deducted monthly and everything else will be deposited into your bank account for your personal expenses and use.
