FREE One-Day Disaster Response  Seminars – For Your Church!

Is your church ready to respond to a disaster or crisis in your city?
Do you want your congregation to be better prepared to meet the spiritual, physical, and emotional needs of people in times of crisis and disaster?  Do you want additional tools and confidence to know what to do when disaster strikes close to home?
If so, now is your opportunity to bring CRI disaster response training to your organization! For a limited time, your church can host a free one-day Disaster Response Seminar to introduce your congregation to the ministry of a Christ-centered response to crisis.

Here’s are just a few of the benefits you and your congregation will get out of hosting a seminar at your church:

  • Introduce your church to meet the urgent spiritual, emotional, and physical needs of people in crisis in disaster in the power of the Holy Spirit.
  • Give your church ministry skills to assist victims who are suffering from grief, loss, trauma, and PTSD.
  • Help your congregation to prepare their homes and develop a response plan for your church facility.
  • Learn how to integrate with local emergency management, work with city officials and first-responders.
  • Learn how to become a part of a team responding to natural disasters, mass shootings, terrorism, or crisis in faith and not fear.
If this describes the type of ministry you want to be a part of, this free one-day seminar will introduce your church missions program to this unique ministry opportunity! This seminar is a catalyst for your church to expand your outreach capabilities as your congregation is introduced to disaster response ministry. By partnering with CRI’s 12+ years of on the ground experience in mobilizing responders into the harvest field of crisis. Partner with a Christian organization that is bringing good news even in the midst of some of the Earth’s darkest hours.
Plus, your congregation will be engaged in practical ways, learning how they can be a part of a team of responders meeting urgent needs in ministry at home or around the world.  Discover tools that can serve your congregation, community, and region in crisis.  Introduce your church to the opportunity to minister to those hurting in disaster and crisis.

Crisis Response International has trained and mobilized thousands of people just like you. Crisis Response International is a non-profit disaster relief organization that has been training the church to reach the harvest in the midst of crisis since 2007.
