ACQUIRETHEFIRE October 29-30

Acquire The Fire The ONE event we actually cancel Redefined for. It’s that good.
Acquire the Fire is a weekend event that hits dozens of cities all over the country every year. It’s a production of Teen Mania Ministries, whom we love and adore. Their mission statement: “To provoke a young generation to passionately pursue Jesus Christ and to take His life-giving message to the ends of the earth!” Teen Mania also operates The Honor Academy (a one-year program for students between high school and college), and Global Expeditions (a global missions organizations for teenagers). Their passion for young people is unmatched, and their ministry is never anything less than excellent. The Acquire the Fire (ATF) weekend events are lifechanging. Most of the event is planned, produced, and executed by interns from The Honor Academy (read: teenagers). And every year they exceed expectations. (Last year, they spent most of the Friday night session on one huge drama that blew our minds. I would have paid twice the ticket fee just to see that production.) ATF achieves what every youth ministry dreams of: they’re fun and exciting, but also deeply spiritual. Pre-Christians will like the event because it’s fun and wildly energetic (and there is always an altar call). Bored or lukewarm Christian students will get set on fire again, and already-burning Christian teenagers will be refreshed and encouraged. We have 15 tickets for the lower bowl, right side, for $40 each. They’re on a first come (where “come” = deliver a signed permission slip and $40) first served basis, so please don’t ask if we can hold one for your student. If we have more than 15 who want to go, we can get more. They might be more than $40, and they might be in a different section (but still with a leader) but it’s worth it. Details about specific schedules and speakers and bands are not yet available, but we’ll keep everyone posted. Bullet-point form: - October 29-30. We’ll spend the night at CITW on Friday. - $40 plus two meals (packed or paid for) Permission slips on reverse side.
