I know Hearts On Fire Gatlinburg is always the weekend before Thanksgiving, BUT NOT THIS YEAR!  Remember, we had to change the date to November 2 & 3. With school starting back, fall activities at church resuming, and the date change, registration has slipped up on all of us.  If you are like me, my calendar doesn’t say it’s time register. However, the date change means you should be two weeks ahead of what you normally are in getting T-Shirt orders and registration sent in. This is just a reminder that in order to get the T-Shirts ordered I must have the sizes by October 2. That is just 13 days from now. Registration needs to be sent in by October 12. I wanted you to see the T-shirt design. Isn’t it great? As always, if you want one in your size, please pre-order. There will be a limited number for sale at the event.

This year’s conference is going to be amazing!!   Derwin Gray, Clayton King, the HOF Band, Roger Williams & the All Mixed-Up Quartet, 3D and of course Josh Wilson and Casting Crowns. Where else can you attend a two-day conference with speakers and concerts like this for only $31?

Remember you can register online using a credit card through your PayPal account, you can submit the check form online and mail me a check, you can mail in the form on the brochure with your check or you can give me a call and mail in your check.

Please don’t hesitate to call me if you have any questions. Just realize time is drawing near and you need to order T-Shirts and register soon!


2012 Event T-shirt! Pre-order now! Limited number available at HOF!

Turn Your Radio on Branson….

I just wanted to let you know that we are airing a radio spot during the next two days for the conference in Branson on October 26 & 27.  We have never tried radio as a means of advertising the conference and we want to see how many people really hear about it and respond through this media.  Be listening to any of the following stations:

KSCV 90.1 FM in Springfield, MO,  92.3 Lebanon, MO,   103.3, 104.5 and 95.7 FM in and around Branson, MO, 88.9 FM out of Adrian MO,  107.3 in Monet, MO, 104.9 FM in Neosho, MO, 104.7 in Carthage, MO, and   KAYH 89.3 FM in N.W. Arkansas.

If you hear about us through the radio please add a comment to the homepage of our website,

I look forward to hearing from you!



I have had people inquire as to the availability of seats and I want to let you know that we do have seats available. You should know however, registration is up by 50% in Branson and 69% in Gatlinburg, as of this same time last year. Praise God!!! I always say at the end of each conference that it was the best one ever, but honestly this is going to be a great year. Please don’t miss out on attending either the Branson or Gatlinburg conference.

To let you know a little bit about capacity, the Welk Resort Theater in Branson will hold 2300 people and the Gatlinburg Convention Center will hold approximately 6500 people per session, totaling 13,000. It would be amazing if we could max out both conferences. You ask why do that. Well more people there will mean that more people will be filled with the gospel and hear about the love of Jesus. More people will come to know Jesus as their own personal Savior and more lives will forever be changed to lives of service for Him. Granted, not everyone who attends will make a decision at Hearts On Fire, but they will hear, and those seeds will be planted in their hearts and minds. That person who you invite might be the one who needs the message they will hear and makes that life-changing, eternity-changing decision.

I encourage each of you to invite someone to the conference this year. Tell other churches in your area about the conference. Some of them may have escaped our mailing list and didn’t receive a brochure and we don’t want any church to miss out on attending Hearts On Fire.

If you have any questions, as always, give me a call at 865-776-2629 or visit our website

This year is going to be great! We can’t wait to see you there!
