Acquire the Fire is a powerful youth conference that’s toured across North America for 25 years
and seen more than 3 million young people and their leaders come to receive a fresh fire from God.

The relevant, interactive communication style includes drama, new media, comedy and object lessons that have become a specialty of Acquire The Fire over the years. We’ve continued to evolve the style of delivery dealing with the most pertinent issues that young people face. After having partnered with over 100,000 youth pastors in North America, we’ve begun conducting these events worldwide as we partner with churches and national leaders in other countries.  There are 1.8 billion young people around the world who need to experience the love of a living God and we endeavor to bring the light of the Gospel to the nations through this unique and significant ministry avenue.

We think you will be encouraged, perhaps even blown-away by some of the testimonies and highlights below. These are just a few of the countless stories of how lives have been changed as a result of the ministry of Acquire The Fire and the presence of the Living God.
