Register NOW for HOF Charleston 2016

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 jsteele@heartsonfireministries.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,

Judy

Only One More Day to Register Online for Charleston!

Already we are 41 days into 2015 and Hearts On Fire Charleston is here! This is going to be a great year. We have more people pre-registered, at this point, for this our third year, than any of the previous years.

On-line registration will be taken down tomorrow. If you need to make any additions please take the time to do that today. We will be taking registrations at the door but only as long as we have seating available. It is first come, first served for registration at the event.

This is going to be a great conference. I would encourage churches in the Charleston, SC area to bring your youth groups. Two powerful speakers, Darren Whitehead and Seth Buckley; worship led by Roger Williams & the AMUQ; and the WE BELIEVE GOD’S NOT DEAD TOUR with the Newboys and special guests Audio Adrenaline & Finding Favour.  All this for $40 is unheard of.  Just think of seeing this concert series in a venue that only holds 1586 people!

If you have any questions please feel free to contact us at 865-776-2629.

We are praying for and expecting great things to happen at HOF Charleston 2015!

Great HOF Conference Planned in Charleston, SC

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.

Hearts On Fire Believes GOD’S NOT DEAD….

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year are now in our past and as we look forward to future events I want to remind you of Hearts On Fire Charleston. February 13 & 14 at Charleston Southern University is going to be a conference you don’t want to miss. This is a huge event for the Lightsey Auditorium and we would like to see every seat filled. With that said, be aware, the venue only holds a maximum capacity of 1586 people. Please register soon because it is on a first come, first serve basis and I don’t like turning people away.

Darren Whitehead is not a new speaker for Hearts On Fire. He has been with us several times in the past 29 years. Darren is originally from Australia but has lived in the United States for more than 15 years. In March of 2013, Darren founded Church of the City, by planting two churches in Nashville, TN. Those two churches are the first of a network of twenty neighborhood churches planned for the Nashville metropolitan area. Darren has also recently released his first book, Rumors of God. Darren lives with his wife and three daughters in Nashville.

HOF is excited to have Seth Buckley, Minister to Students at First Baptist Spartanburg, SC, for the first time.   For those of you in South Carolina I know you have heard of Seth, and many of you have probably had him at your church before. Seth is a consultant for the SC Baptist Convention. He and his wife have 4 children so he knows a lot about youth. Check out their website, www.fbs.org/students. Their youth building is called The Hangar. “Just as the hangar is a place where planes are built, remodeled, and prepared to be sent out into a mission in wartime, The Hangar at FBS is a place for junior high, high school and college students to experience the same process of preparation for their own lives of faith.”  What a great analogy!

The concert series that we have coming to Hearts On Fire Charleston is one like we have never had before. The WE BELIEVE GOD’S NOT DEAD TOUR with Newsboys and special guest Audio Adrenaline and Finding Favour is huge! We just witnessed the Newsboys Concert at Hearts On Fire Pigeon Forge and it was one of the best concerts we have ever had. To understand that this will be three hours of music in a venue that only holds 1586 people is phenomenal. Everyone will be getting a very intimate, close up concert!

Please don’t wait to register! Register today!    www.heartsonfireministries.org

HOF Charleston 2014…Wonderful Conference!

We love having Hearts On Fire in Charleston, SC! 2014 was the second year of the conference and once again we were blessed. Decisions were made, lives were changed. I have had messages, since the conference, telling me decisions are still being made to follow Christ.

Many of you had the opportunity that most who attend Hearts On Fire have never had. You got to hear Scott Carter, founder of Hearts On Fire, bring the message. You also got to hear David Nasser, a great friend of ours speak. Lives were forever changed from the messages that these men brought from God.

Music was phenomenal this year with Zac Bennett and the Lift Live leading worship and concerts by Sanctus Real and The Rhett Walker Band. From Friday through Saturday the music was some of the best we have ever had at Hearts On Fire.

For those of you who have not attended the conference in Charleston you are missing a wonderful, weekend of worship. This has started off as a small conference with face-to-face time with speakers and musicians. Don’t miss the early years of Hearts On Fire Charleston, SC. One day it will be as large as the conference has grown in Tennessee, and we will look back and remember these very early years.

Thank you for all those who helped to make HOF Charleston a wonderful conference. Be watching the website for information about HOF Charleston 2015.

HOF Charleston in Five!!

They say as you get older time seems to pass quicker and I can testify to that. The good thing about that, it’s not so long between conferences with our friends in Charleston.

Everything is ready and we are excited about our second year in Charleston. Two great speakers, Scott Carter and David Nasser; two awesome concerts; Sanctus Real and The Rhett Walker Band; and worship led by Zac Bennett and The Lift Live. March 14 & 15 is going to be great! Please invite churches in your area to attend.

To answer a few questions, we will have shirts available for purchase at the event. The schedule for the two day event is on our website, http://www.heartsonfireministries.org. If you have additions to your registration bring them with you and you can pay at the door. Remember we take cash or checks but no credit cards.

Please keep the conference in your prayers and we will see you on Friday.

If you have any questions feel free to contact me.
