CRI Founder & Director
While involved in the motion pictures industry in New York, CRI Founder and Director, Sean Malone found a front row seat at Ground Zero after the 9/11 attacks where he provided lighting for the search and rescue operations. This is where the seeds for being involved in crisis response work were planted. In 2007 he officially launched Crisis Response International, and since then have trained thousands of Responders to reach the Harvest in the midst of crisis. Crisis Response International (CRI) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that resources, trains and mobilizes volunteers, churches and other organizations to respond to disasters and compassion initiatives around the world.
Today, Crisis Response International has trained and mobilized over 3,500 Crisis Responders into the harvest field of crisis, but the work is far from over. More people need to be trained. More missionaries need to be supported. The unfinished task of the Gospel in all nations is before us. Crisis and disasters are shaking cities and nations and our belief is it won’t stop until the return of Christ. Yet at the same time we believe this is the church’s greatest hour. We have the Answer and Hope the rest of the world is looking for, yet our voice has not been heard as clear as it needs to and should be. But there’s hope.
CRI exists to provide a model and framework for effective ministry in the midst of state, national and international disaster.
