Prepare. Train. Deploy. Reach the harvest in crisis. 

Get certified to deploy in times of crisis and disaster.


Millions are affected every day by crisis and disaster worldwide. People need help, whether from natural disasters, systemic poverty or crisis created by war or terrorism. Have you ever watched the news and said to yourself, “I wish I could help!”?

You can! Our internationally certified and recognized training will equip you with the knowledge, courage, and understanding you need to bring hope to the hopeless and help to the broken and hurting. Stop disqualifying yourself and join forces with us at strategic training and deployment opportunities across the United States and internationally.

We’d love for you to link arms with us!

CRí training can equip you with skills like:

  • Disaster First Aid
  • Spiritual and Emotional First Aid
  • Light Search and Rescue
  • Disaster Chaplaincy
  • Crisis Ministry
  • Crisis Evangelism
  • Prophecy, Healing, and Deliverance (PHD)
  • Personal and Community Preparedness
  • Deployment Operations and Protocol

As a Certified CRí Responder you are eligible to deploy to disasters and crisis situations around the world, and unite with others who share the vision to reach the harvest in crisis. Our organization is recognized by local, state, federal and international governing bodies. The training offers a broad skill set to meet the various physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of people in crisis and disaster, and includes a background check, CRí badge, basic responder gear and certificate of completion. When you are deployed by CRí you are covered under our general liability insurance as a volunteer.

Being a Certified CRí Responder is a prerequisite to becoming a CRí Chaplain. Find out more about becoming a CRí Chaplain here.

Training Options

To achieve status as a Level 1 Responder an individual must complete one of the following:

  • CRí Rapid Training (2-3 day live seminar style training)
  • CRí Basic Training (4-5 day live camp/retreat style event)
  • Course 1 – Rapid Responder training of CRí Online Academy

*Live CRí trainings are listed on this page as they are scheduled.

CRí Academy is the online extension of CRí’s training program. We presently are offering Course 1 – Rapid Responder and the Disaster Chaplaincy Track. Course 1 qualifies you to become a CRí Responder and is a great refresher course! It includes topics such as basic disaster chaplaincy skills, crisis ministry, disaster first-aid, personal preparedness, deployment protocol and much more. Most of all, you will learn how to meet the urgent practical needs through the power of the Holy Spirit. The Disaster Chaplaincy Track, which is open to everyone, has Basic and Advanced sections, each of which meets different requirements for CRí Chaplains. You have to be a CRí Responder before becoming a CRí Chaplain but not before taking this Track.

When you become a CRí Responder, you will be asked to fill out a brief form in order to create your own personal responder profile in our Responder Level System (RLS). This will keep track of your online and live training events as well as deployments and other achievements so that you are adequately credentialed and receive all CRí Responder benefits, deployment notifications, and updated badges. (See more about the Responder Level System here.)
