No one needs to go through life along. AFIRE provides a family environment where college students learn about life together. Our peer mentoring initiatives is an intimate community of peers that provide friendship, support, accountability and love.
There is nothing like expressing your love for God through praise and worship. We kick-off fall and spring semester with an explosive evening of praise and worship that leaves you wanting more of God. The service is a fellowship with other campus and young adult ministries from local churches, and features a variety of performances including spoken word, mime, praise dance, hip-hop dance, rap, comedy, and singing.
Hearts Afire Mission
Our students whole heartily embrace the commandment of “love thy neighbor” and “wash the feet of Jesus” by reaching and meeting the needs of people who are less fortunate than themselves. Via our annual Alternative Spring Break Mission Trip, students establish lasting ties with the destination communities through a variety of service activities, college tours, museum tours, sightseeing, social outings, and more.
