This year will be like no other year in the history of Hearts On Fire. You don’t want to miss the 30th year!!

November 18, 19, 2016

LeConte Center in Pigeon Forge.

Speakers for 2016: Clayton King, Tony Nolan, David Nasser and Dave Edwards

Never before have we had four speakers at one event!

Praise & Worship with our own Hearts On Fire Band,

Concerts by for KING&COUNTRY and Lauren Daigle

A few things to tell you about that are a little different than in past years:

Two different registration fees this year! If you register and we receive your money prior to the deadline of October 28, the cost will be $35 but if we receive your registration after October 28 the cost will be $45. This means that add-ons after October 28 will be $45. Remember registration is not confirmed until we have received your payment and we do not give refunds.

New this year, per your request, Hoodies! The cost of hoodies is $25 and yes they can be pre-ordered. Pictures of the 2016 T-Shirt and Hoodie are available on our website, www.heartsonfireministries.org.

We want to involve your youth group this year in our promotions. In your most upbeat and energetic way, we ask that you email a video to us at info@heartsonfireministries.org.

Using your phone, video your youth group. The video should include telling us the name of your church, where you are from and why you are coming to Hearts On Fire. At the end of your video we need you to say, “Hearts On Fire is one youth conference you don’t want to miss”.   This will be fun and you just might see yourself on our website, in a mass email, on the screen at the event or some other form of advertising.

Don’t forget to remind your youth about the Hearts On Fire Scholarship. All information is on the website.

If you have any questions about HOF Pigeon Forge 2016, visit our website, www.heartsonfireministries.org or contact me, Judy at 865-776-2629.

 

We ask that you keep the conference in your prayers in the months leading up to the event!

 

See you in November!

Hearts On Fire 2016-What’s New and What’s Not!

I am happy to say the planning for Pigeon Forge 2016 is almost complete. It has certainly been a busy winter for us in preparation for the 30th year of Hearts On Fire. This year is going to be packed with more speakers, concerts and praise & worship music than we have ever had before. Please keep an eye on our website, www.heartsonfireministries.org for the latest updates. Soon we will have the schedule and lodging details available and you can begin making your reservations. We are trying to pack as much into the schedule as possible. You will be amazed at all you will see and hear at HOF this year!

If you have a special memory or something special happened to you at Hearts On Fire please send me a quick email telling me about it. Whether you were saved at Hearts On Fire or gave your call to the ministry or your church had a special memory I would like to hear about it. We are trying to compile information that spans across all 30 years. You may be asked to submit a short 1-minute video clip later in the year. Please ask your youth group to get involved. You can email me at info@heartsonfireministries.org.

Word of mouth is still our best advertisement. I would ask you to have your youth like us on Facebook and Twitter, (Hearts On Fire Ministries). Help us get the word out to as many people as possible.

I have a few changes you should know about this year. Registration will still be $35 per person if we receive your reservation and your money by October 28. If we receive your reservation after October 28 the registration will be $45 per person. Also, new this year, per your request, we will be offering hoodies for sale in addition to the long-sleeve T-shirts. The shirts will still be offered at $15 and the hoodie will be $25.

It’s time for graduates to consider applying for the Hearts On Fire Scholarship. Visit the website for information. Applications must be received by July 1 to be considered. Send to Hearts On Fire, PO Box 4336, Sevierville, TN 37864.

HOF Promo Video & Important Reminders!

Several of you have asked for a promotional video to show at your church. Here is the link to a new video:

Also check out the video from Scott on the homepage of our website, www.heartsonfireministries.org

Reminders:

October 20th is the last day to make lodging reservations through the Pigeon Forge Housing Bureau. If you do not reserve your rooms by that date the special group rates may not apply. Go to lodging under the Pigeon Forge drop-down menu on our website for the lists of hotels and directions for making your reservation.

The deadline to pre-order your Hearts On Fire 2015 T-Shirts is October 23rd. We will have shirts available at the event; however, remember the shirts at the event will be in limited sizes and also limited numbers. Last year we sold out!

The registration deadline is October 30th. Ideally you should have your registration in by this date. I know it is difficult for some to commit with competing sports and other events. I would urge you to make your reservations by the deadline if at all possible. It really helps in our planning for the event. It is our goal never to turn anyone away after the registration deadline and if you have a student who asks to come after October 30th we will register him or her as long as seating is available.

We are very excited about this year and look forward to seeing you in Pigeon Forge on November 20 – 21, 2015.

Pigeon Forge 2015 is off to a great start!

I wanted to let you know that the brochures for Pigeon Forge are going in the mail today. This year the mailing will go to 50,608 churches. Last year we mailed out 44,000 brochures.  Registrations have already begun to arrive!  Remember word of mouth is always one of the best ways of letting others know what you think of the conference.  Please visit us on Facebook or Twitter and let others know what the conference means to you.  If you do not receive a brochure, no worries, the website has all of the same information.

Remember to tell any upcoming graduates, or anyone attending a Christian College, to apply for the Scott Carter Scholarship. The application is available online.

I encourage you to visit the website www.heartsonfireministries.org and if you have any questions feel free to email me jsteele@heartsonfireministries.org.   Chances are if you have a question someone else has the same question. I will send out emails periodically to answer frequently asked questions.

Have a great day!

Judy

Hearts On Fire Pigeon Forge 2015

Pigeon Forge 2015 is all set and we want to give you a heads up on the details before the brochure is mailed. Be looking for your brochure in the mail during the upcoming weeks.  Believe it or not we already have people registering!

We are super excited about the line up for this year. On Friday, November 20th we are happy to introduce, never before on the Hearts On Fire stage, The Skit Guys and a testimony by Inky Johnson. If you haven’t heard them please visit their websites. Inky’s, http://www.inkyjohnson.com, testimony will bless your heart and the Skit Guys, http://www.skitguys.com, will bless you with a powerful message interwoven with sidesplitting laughter. Of course our own Hearts On Fire Band and Roger Williams and the AMUQ will be providing Praise & Worship.

On Saturday, November 21st we will start off the morning with a speaker who is a great friend to Hearts On Fire, Dave Edwards, http://www.davetown.com. Dave has not been with us since 2008. Dave’s ability to communicate the gospel to teenagers is phenomenal.

Saturday afternoon never fails to raise the energy level of all who attend and this year will not disappoint. We are happy to have with us, MercyMe and Finding Favour in concert!

MercyMe has won many awards and written songs that you love to hear such as “I Can Only Imagine,” “Word of God Speak,” “Here With Me,” “Homesick,” “So Long Self” and the list and accolades goes on and on. They have sold out venues across the nation, including Radio City Music Hall, and have appeared on The Today Show, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, CNN, Fox News Channel, Fox & Friends, ABC News, CBS This Morning and in the pages of Entertainment Weekly, The New York Times, USA Today, Billboard and more. WOW, we are honored to have them join us.

Finding Favour joined us at our conference in Charleston earlier this year and we fell in love with them, and their music. Songs like, “Slip On By,” “Shake the World” and “Say Amen” are just a few of the great songs you will hear.

Please take the time to visit the Hearts On Fire website, http://www.heartsonfireministries.org . On the homepage you will see a message from Scott.

Don’t forget to remind your upcoming seniors or those attending a Christian College to apply for the HOF Scholarship. Details are on the website.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me. I am here to help you and I look forward to speaking with you.
