It is with great joy and excitement that I bring news to you regarding a recent development at the school. Through a divine appointment, we came in contact with a young lady a couple of years ago from Orlando, FL named Tammy Shay. We knew immediately that the Lord had brought us together and that He had divine purposes in store because of this connection. Over the next couple of years we went into prayer as to the timing and purpose of meeting Tammy and praying as to how she could become a part of our staff here at the school. I am blessed to say that this has happened! As of this month, Tammy has officially joined us here in North Carolina and she is overseeing our Worship/Creative Arts division of the school. As leadership we have strongly desired to see this dynamic strengthened and increased in our midst and with what Tammy brings, as well as what her burdens and passions are, she is a perfect fit! It is already great to see her beginning to mentor, develop and coordinate multiple students as she is pouring into their lives on a very regular basis.
Please read Tammy’s bio and vision for the school and if you have any questions regarding the Worship/Creative Arts department of FIRE School of Ministry then please feel free to contact us.

FIRE Worship Department Mission Statement:
FIRE Worship exists to raise up radical lovers of God who don’t just talk about Jesus but walk like Jesus. There is a quality of heart that far surpasses the greatest gifting that should be cultivated in every worship leader and musician. A worshiper who knows God is a walking revelation to those who don’t. Leading worship is a lifestyle and it doesn’t turn off when the sound does.
The world is influencing all arenas of life with music. It’s time for worshipers to arise and declare the beauty of Jesus and usher in a revival of hearts like the world has never seen. When a worshiper who is abandoned to Jesus opens their mouth, hell shakes and heaven opens. God is looking…He is searching for those who aren’t trying to sound like everyone else and be like everyone else by singing the “same song,” but who, confident of who they are before Him, are willing to give themselves to Him daily and wait on Him to release the new song!
As a worshiper you can change the atmosphere of every place that you go. You are more than just a vocalist or musician; you are a voice coming from the throne of God that carries the very weight and glory of the Holy Spirit. Jesus told His disciples to heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers and cast out demons. There is a high calling for each of us. He is calling. He is inviting.
FIRE Worship focuses on intimacy with Jesus, fellowship with the Holy Spirit and the passion of the Father. Some of what you should expect includes: worship leading experience, band leading, songwriting, growing spiritually, ministry trips, guest speakers, vocal and instrumental classes, developing other forms of creative worship, and more.
If you are reading this I believe that God is calling you for such a time as this to express His heart to the earth. He has given us great gifts and one day soon, He will return and ask us what we did with our talents (Matthew 25:14-30). Oh…that we would all say to Him…we gave everything for Your glory!
