Nashville, TN- In the midst of the darkest crises on earth, Christian believers are learning to minister good news in Jesus’ name. Crisis Response International’s (CRí) new headquarters and “Sending Center” in Nashville, TN is now open. The international relief organization this week announced the opening of The Sending Center- a crisis response training center set to host individuals from around the world and offer Chaplain Certification and training skills including:
- Grief after Loss
- Inner Healing & Identity, Crisis Ministry Tools
- Hearing God’s Voice
- Chaplain On-Call phone protocol training
- Basic Wilderness First Aid Certification Class
- Emergency Child Birthing, Refugee Triage, Mass Care
- Search & Rescue
“The vision for The Sending Center is to train and mobilize crisis response missionaries and disaster responders from a place of God's presence. This is a missions-minded community going out to crisis situations around the earth,” said Sean Malone, CRí Director.
“Crisis is the church's hour and a great opportunity to bring the hope of the Gospel to areas that are just devastated by crises," said Malone.
“I am happy to announce that this month CRí has moved into our new facility, an old hospital in East Nashville just down the street from Titan Stadium. The Sending Center will be used for various types of missionary and vocational training, staff housing, offices and prayer and worship. This new facility will help CRI to multiply workers for the harvest field of crisis,” said Malone.
The ministry has over 2,500 trained responders around the world and are right now focusing much of their relief efforts in Iraq, bringing food, shelter, medical attention and Bibles to thousands of displaced refugees fleeing the terror of ISIS.
“Due to the ISIS crisis many people groups and communities that were closed to the gospel before are now wide open. As there are many Yazidi, Shabak, Muslim, and "Christian" refugees that are desperate for help and so open to those who give it. I believe the harvest is ripe as Jesus said and the need is for laborers to come and love with His love,” stated Malone.
