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, 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!


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 Update…

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,


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.
