NEW!  “Mission Team Mobilizers” Wanted.

Kenya / Burundi / Congo: Are you looking for a way to “Mobilize” missions involvement and fulfill the Great Commission in a practical and powerful way?

CRI is looking for energetic and mature followers of Christ who want to use their God given skills to organize & participate in short term mission trips to Africa – You can GO one time or GO several times, it’s up to you!

CRI’s “Mission Team Mobilizers” are those people whom God is calling to form, prepare and deploy “GO Teams” with the purpose of reaching out with God’s love in times of disaster, tribal war, and famine. “GO Teams” can be formed from within your own church or by reaching out to other churches, organizations or college groups.

Mobilized Teams will be involved in one or more of the following Tribal Ministries…

Hut to Hut Evangelism / Bible Teaching in Our Schools of Ministries and Church Plants / Child Evangelism / Food Distributions / Medical Clinics / Clean Water Projects / Community Development / Building Projects / Farming / Etc.

“Contact Us” for more information about this unique opportunity to become a CRI Mission Team Mobilizer.

(If accepted, a “non-employee” travel expense package is available if needed. No other compensation is being offered. Missions experience a plus for consideration).


Join Us on an Adventure of a Lifetime – Sharing the Gospel and Saving Lives…

Every year we plan several mission trips to Africa. These trips provide a rewarding and exciting opportunity for Christians in the U.S. to fulfill the Great Commission and to reach some of the world’s most vulnerable people for Jesus. On average, each trip lasts 10-14 days but longer trips are available.

While volunteers must cover their own expenses, our services are free of charge. Neither CRI or it’s representatives receive any financial compensation. A representative from Calvary Relief International leads the team and arranges all trip details, including food, lodging transportation.

Each trip is customized to match the schedule, size, gifts and needs of each group that God forms.

There is an open invitation to pastors and teachers for evangelism, teaching in churches & leadership conferences of all sorts – as well as doctors & nurses who wish to set up small clinic outreaches.

If you or your group are interested in joining us on one of our mission  projects – please contact us at least 3-4 months before your preferred travel time. 


1). Mission Trips offered by CRI to the African Bush are not recommended for High School Youth Groups. We do not take minor children without a parent being present. Please contact us about children traveling in Africa with CRI.

2). (Optional) A CRI representative is available to come to your church for a pre-trip orientation and basic training to prepare you for your adventure. (Travel expenses from California paid for by your group).
