While sitting at my desk watching the snow come down I am reminded of how much I love snow! I know many of you do not share in my love of snow but it has always filled me with a sense of slowing down, refreshing and cleansing. For those who are receiving snow, stay in, stay safe and enjoy time with your family.
I have a few messages for you:
First, it is time for you to register! Believe it or not the conference is only 23 days away. Please register soon!
T-Shirts have to be ordered next week. You will love the color and design celebrating the 30th year of Hearts On Fire. If you haven’t visited the website recently you will see a new promo video uploaded on the Charleston page as well as the T-Shirt design.
Ken Freeman and Scott Carter are very excited about sharing God’s word with you. In saying that, if any of you would like for Ken Freeman to speak at your church on Sunday he is willing to stay over to join you. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. for more information. What a great opportunity to have such a wonderful speaker in your pulpit.
Check out the websites of the AFTERS, MIKESCHAIR and the JJ Weeks Band. They are very excited and planning a great afternoon of concerts.
If you attended two years ago you enjoyed the worship music of Zac Bennett and the Lift Live. They are ready to bless your hearts again and send your youth group home with a renewed love for great music and songs you can sing in your own group.
Please contact us with any questions you have (865-776-2629) or visit our website, www.heartsonfireministries.org.
See you soon in Charleston,
The Christmas Holidays are now over and tonight will bring in a new year. Time certainly does go quickly! 2016 will bring in a year of new beginnings and a fresh start for everyone. Let’s make this a year like no other. Let’s give Christ first priority in our hearts and lives this year.
One of the first priorities for all youth leaders within 300 miles of Charleston, SC should be to register your youth for Hearts On Fire. This year marks the 30th year since Scott Carter answered God’s call in his life to begin a youth conference. It has grown tremendously during that time but the mission has stayed the same, to reach middle school and high school students with the gospel of Christ and to encourage believers to walk in the truth and integrity of Christ. Those who attend the Charleston conference will be blessed by having Scott Carter as one of their speakers this year.
Ken Freeman will be speaking at the conference on Friday evening. Ken is a very exciting speaker with a passion to tell others about Jesus. Following Ken on Twitter will make you wonder if he ever slows down. His tweet today said that last night he saw over 300 saved. God has blessed Ken with the ability to connect to people of any age group, culture, or background. Ken Freeman lives with a passion to bring people to know Christ and to make a deeper, more intimate, commitment to Him. Your youth group will go home with a desire to serve God that will certainly spill over into the entire church body.
Zac Bennett the worship leader at The Lift, First Baptist Indian Trail, NC, will lead Hearts On Fire Charleston worship services. Zac Bennett & the Lift Live joined us a few years ago and they were amazing. Their music will certainly prepare your heart for worship.
On Saturday afternoon, February 13 we will have three groups in concert, the AFTERS, MIKESCHAIR and the JJ Weeks Band. What a great way to start off 2016 with your youth group, two days, two speakers, praise and worship and three concerts, all for only $40. Make your plans now to attend. Register online at www.heartsonfireministries.org or call 865-776-2629 to answer any questions you might have regarding the conference at Charleston Southern University, Lightsey Auditorium.
We wish each of you and your youth groups a Happy New Year and we look forward to seeing you in Charleston.
Hearts On Fire
Where has the time gone? The appointed deadline for the Charleston Conference is tomorrow. This year’s conference is going to be amazing! In case you haven’t heard our speakers will be Darren Whitehead and Seth Buckley. The concert is going to be 3 hours long with NEWSBOYS and the WE BELIEVE GOD’S NOT DEAD TOUR with special guests Audio Adrenaline and Finding Favour. That is huge!!! Leading worship is one of your favorite groups, Roger Williams & the AMUQ.
Believe it or not we still have seats available. Please tell all your friends and churches in your community that registration has been extended and they can still register online until the seats are filled. You don’t want to miss out on attending what could be a life changing conference for you or your youth group.
Spread the word, we hope to see you there.
We are closing in on the largest Hearts On Fire Conference, ever!!!!
Our first year at the LeConte Center in Pigeon Forge is going to be one you will not forget. We currently have 444 churches represented. Registration is very close to 9000. We have 12 states represented from as far north as Ohio and Indiana, as far west as Mississippi and as far south as Florida.
I have been getting many phone calls wanting to know if we still have seats available. Yes, we still have seats available. Additional wristbands can be purchased at Registration. Remember, we do not take credit or debit cards at the event. You can however pay with cash or check. Also, no worries about when you arrive, there will be someone at the Registration desk both Friday and Saturday throughout the event. When you arrive just follow the signs to Registration, pick up your wristbands and take a place in line.
We are very excited and look forward to seeing you on Friday, November 21. It is going to be awesome!
Hearts On Fire, Pigeon Forge 2014, is going to be AWESOME!!!
For those of you who haven’t registered yet, no worries, we still have space available. Although the numbers are up from 2013 the LeConte Center will hold more people and we are still fine. You can register online either by the Check Payment Form or by using your credit card and going through PayPal (you can register as a guest if you don’t have a PayPal account).
You may ask why we have a deadline? If we didn’t have a deadline and you waited until the last minute and we were full, you would be very upset. One year that very thing happened. So many people waited until the last minute to register that we were full and many were told they couldn’t come. That was very difficult for us to turn people away and hard for those churches to break the news to their youth. That is why we have a deadline.
We are very excited about the new venue and the lineup we have for this year. Please keep the conference in your prayers. As Scott says, “the conference will never be any better than the prayers we put in to it.” Pray that many lives will be changed and that souls will be saved.
Only 20 more days!!!
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions, email@example.com
Where has the time gone? Do you believe it is only 5 weeks until Heart On Fire Pigeon Forge?
I wanted to take this time to remind you that next Friday, October 24 is the deadline for T-Shirt orders. As always, we will have some shirts for sale at the event however, there will be a limited number and sizes available. The deadline to register is set for two weeks from today on Friday, October 31. Now is the time to really get those youth to commit and send in your registrations.
This year Hearts On Fire is going to be amazing! I know, I know, I say that every year. Two of our favorite speakers will be with us this year, Clayton King and Tony Nolan. They are both very respected and great men of God who always pour into you the words that God lays on their hearts. We have had them many times before and we know them. They are just what you see. We love them and we know you do too! Just an FYI, because I know many of you stay over and attend church on Sunday in Sevierville, Tony will be speaking in the 8am and 11am services at FBC Sevierville. I know he would love to see you there. The concerts this year are going to be awesome! The NEWSBOYS and The CITY HARMONIC are going to present concerts like you have never seen before at Hearts On Fire. Believe me when I say that, you will see a concert like you have never seen before at Hearts On Fire!
The Hearts On Fire Band will be leading worship and we know they will be singing songs that your youth group sings at home. They will certainly prepare your hearts for worship. We know from your response, that our friends Roger Williams & the AMUQ and 3D are favorites of your group and they will be joining again as well.
Our first year in Pigeon Forge at the beautiful LeConte Center is going to be one you will never forget.
