FIRE Core Team

FIRE has completely blown up in the past year. Averaging around 75 teens every time we get together, Middle school ministry is somewhat like herding cats and we need your help to wrangle these hooligans for Jesus.

High school students are welcome to serve on our FIRE Core Team.

The secret sauce of middle school ministry is being able to capture, channel, and redirect the students’ massive amounts of energy toward an encounter with the living God, Jesus Christ.

This takes serious manpower, and we need your help to draw our middle school students deeper still into the Father’s heart.
