Letter from the President

Dear Friends,

We are living in an urgent and unprecedented period of human history, a time in which the Spirit is moving mightily all over the earth and God’s light is penetrating the darkness. The harvest has never been riper and the need for laborers never greater. Now is the time to go, but before you go, you must be prepared and equipped. Let us help you fulfill God’s calling in this critical hour!

After more than 20 years of raising up laborers to go into all the world and preach the gospel in the power of the Spirit, we are thrilled to announce our new, intensive nine-month leadership institute. This could be the very thing you have been praying for!

For nine months you will study here at FIRE School of Ministry with me and our anointed faculty, getting grounded in the Word, grounded in intimacy with God, grounded in the power of the Spirit, grounded in practical ministry. You will also sit under the anointed teaching of an incredible line-up of guest speakers, featuring some of the leading evangelists and apologists and church planters and prayer warriors of this generation. You will never be the same!

And every week, you will worship, pray, and serve with like-minded believers, taking the gospel to the surrounding communities and growing in practical ministry tools.

Then, after nine-months here with us at FIRE, you will go into an intensive nine-month internship, serving under a handpicked leader in your area of gifting and calling, also taking additional online classes at FIRE.

Because of the urgency of the hour, we have revamped our entire program. So now is the time to get trained and equipped and sent out to shake this generation. Let us go and reap the harvest while the door is still open!

In particular, we want to help equip those of you who already have ministry experience and cannot afford to spend four years at a traditional Bible school. Our intensive, nine-month leadership institute, followed by an intensive nine-month internship will get you right onto the front lines — but you will be grounded and ready.

Our new program launches in August, so apply today and be part of the very class of Jesus-glorifying world-changers. It’s time!

In Him,



Dr. Michael L. Brown
