You will also work with our interns, raising up future missionaries and laborers for Christ. Your position will help us take His love to the poorest of our world today in word and deed.
"The beautiful experience that we have by serving, we must pass on to people who have not had it."
College students can be na unstoppable force. We want individuals to be awakened to the needs of those in deep poverty around the world. Then use that passion to engage others around them with what God is already doing.

Job Type: Full-time
Children's Relief International (CRI) mission of taking the light of Christ to the poor began in March of 2000. Since that time CRI has grown from one project in Mozambique to over a dozen, from one staff member (Alan, our President, and Founder) to over 60 staff members across the US and from one program that delivers aid to over 20 in multiple locations across the globe. As we answer the call to be a part of this lasting work, we seek to C.A.R.E. in everything we do. The following are our four core outcomes:
Care- The most urgent spiritual and physical needs in our world begin with children. We provide care by meeting needs such as nutrition, education, clean water, and more as we seek to share God's love and compassion for all his people.
Awaken- Our goal is to awaken God's people to compassion and generosity by sharing our experience.
Raise- As we provide care to the poor and awaken God's people, we seek to enable his people minister in both Word and Deed by sending teams to support our international partners and programs.
Enable- Our final core outcome is to enable those who are willing to answer the call by recruiting, training, sending, and supporting missionaries to serve with us, whether Nationals or Americans.
We seek to find staff that shares our convictions and motivations to care for the poor of our time in Jesus name. The work is unique and powerful but it is not without its challenges.
