ARC School – Durango, CO
March 1st – April 22nd

Do you want to deepen your relationship with God, grow in prayer and clarify your calling?

Come set aside seven weeks at the 2018 ARC School, hosted by the Durango House of Prayer in Durango, Colorado. This is CRI’s first ARC School in six years! Do not miss this unique opportunity to receive biblical teaching and practical ministry skills in the context of a praying, missional community. Very limited space so apply soon!

Durango is a beautiful western town, nestled in the San Juan National Mountains. It is an ideal place to pull away and get trained as a  crisis response missionary, leader, intercessor, and worshipper.

“Crisis” is a mission field and laborers are needed! Whether it’s a hurricane-affected city or a faraway country rocked by earthquake or war, having the tools to minister in these environments is essential to reach the harvest in the midst of crisis. However, an “Apostolic Response to Crisis” is needed to see transformation come to cities and nations.

At the ARC School, you will receive biblical teaching and crisis response ministry skills in the context of worship and prayer in a missional community setting. You will develop a stronger prayer life as you get classroom teaching and lots of hands-on training.

Whether you go back to your community or become a full-time crisis response missionary or intercessor, we are certain that this school will prepare you to be fruitful in the days ahead.

Here is what to expect:

Day 1– Arrive by noon at DHOP on March 1st for orientation and room assignment at the Wapiti Lodge.

Days 1-3– Attend a Disaster Relief Seminar – CRI’s basic training which certifies you as a CRI responder. (If you have already completed CRI basic training before to your arrival – either online or at a live event – you will be part of the event team, as this will be open to the public.)

Pagosa Hot Springs


The entire ARC School and staff (while in Pagosa Springs) will have the opportunity to soak in the world famous hot springs, get to know one another and have some fun.

ARC SCHOOL TRAINING will begin the following week and will include Crisis Intercession & Worship Teaching, House of Prayer Model, Prophetic Ministry Training, Knowing God’s Will for Your Life, Deliverance Ministry Training, Basic and Advanced Chaplaincy Training, Crisis Ministry Skills, Developing a Kingdom Mindset, Crisis Evangelism, Making Disciples, Missions, Israel, Cultural Sensitivity, Conflict Resolution, Leadership Training, Servanthood, Deployment Leadership, CRI’s Basic and Advanced Crisis Response Training.

Sleeping Ute mountain

You will likely participate in outreaches to local bars, do dream interpretations and even hike into homeless camps to love on the lost and forgotten. You will go on day trips and overnights to the Ute Mountain Reservation in Towaoc, Colorado to minister and meet needs of the Ute People as this will be a main outreach focus for the school.

During the school, transportation will be available for all school activities. You will be staying at the Wapiti Lodge which is within easy walking distance to the Durango  House of Prayer, town, and shopping. In your downtime, you can stroll downtown, visit one of the great coffee shops, take a hike or even go skiing.

The ARC School will culminate at the end of week seven with your participation in the Advanced Training Summit (ATS) in in the remote Colorado location of Three Trails Ranch.
