JOIN US FOR AN EXTRAORDINARY EXPERIENCE
Refuge Builders Intensive is a transformative journey where you'll discover a blueprint for places of refuge, cultivate profound presence, and become a source of healing and rest. As a community, we will actively learn, build, and become a place of provision and safety for others.
This is more than a program; it's an immersive experience where we construct and, more importantly, transform into ARCs of safety and refuge for others.

Refuge Builders Intensive Leadership
Drawing from a background in the motion picture industry, Sean Malone returned to New York just days before the 9/11 attacks, where he played a crucial role in providing emergency lighting for search and rescue operations. His journey continued as Paramount Pictures sent him to New Orleans shortly before Hurricane Katrina struck, immersing him in extensive disaster relief efforts.
In 2007, Sean, alongside his wife Laura, founded Crisis Response International (CRI), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Since its inception, CRI has trained over fifteen thousand volunteer responders and full-time crisis response missionaries, deploying them to some of the world's most challenging crises and disasters. They persist in being at the right place and time with a worldwide community of CRI Responders who long to bring God’s love and care when people need it most. CRI remains at the forefront of training volunteers and mobilizing resources to bring relief where it's needed most worldwide.

In the late '90s, I encountered the love of God, sparking a transformative journey that led me to a profound calling. Fueled by a hunger for corporate intimacy and a desire to see the Lord's anointing unleashed, my ministry spans 27 years and 27 countries.
Recently, I returned to my beloved Hawaii with a specific mandate: to establish a retreat home for ministers, a place where we seek His face collectively for times of refreshing. The call is clear—to move from being productive to being present in His Presence, a longing of God's heart for His Bride. As a pastor, prophet, counselor, and advocate, my diverse roles converge in worship. I lead missions and anti-trafficking efforts and support leadership teams in pursuing God and community.
I have been on several deployments with CRI and recently led the deployment in my home state during the Maui fires.
Ultimately, my heartbeat is worship, declaring Jesus worthy of all I am and aspire to be.
