Leadership Institute

America is in a serious crisis, the Church of America is greatly compromised, and the needs of the world continue to be staggering. There is a critical need today for fully-equipped, solidly-grounded, specially-trained, radically-committed leaders to arise – and the FIRE Leadership Institute is the ideal place to be trained.

Now is the time to give your life to be a world changer, whether you are called to be a church planter, a college professor, or a cultural prophet; whether your field is missions, music, or the marketplace; whether your burden is for the salvation of the lost, the healing of the sick, or the reformation of society – the FIRE Leadership Institute is uniquely suited to equip you for effective kingdom service.

The FIRE Leadership Institute builds on the foundations of FIRE’s one-year Immersion School, offering a two-year program with emphases in:

  • Biblical Studies
  • Cultural Engagement
  • Youth and Children’s Ministry
  • Missions
  • Prayer, Revival and Evangelism
  • Pastoral
  • Worship

Areas of emphasis are subject to change, based on enrollment.
