F.I.R.E. was started by a group of men in 2014 who were craving more Faith formation in their own lives. We had each experienced a recent Parish retreat that had literally ignited raging fires within our hearts. But once the retreat was over, we began to wonder "what now?" As the days turned into weeks, we all agreed that; although our lives will certainly ebb and flow with highs and lows, we had to do something to keep that FIRE stoked. We knew that, since men seem to be at their best when placed into a challenging environments filled with activities that overpower the senses, what would happen if we combined a true outdoor masculine experience with a rich program that encouraged a stronger walk in their relationship with Jesus Christ?
We began meeting and continuing asking more questions that began with "what if?". Before long we started referring to ourselves as a Council. A FIRE Council that is. FIRE Council members are simply laymen from all walks of life who have a passion for sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ in a very creative and masculine way, who love the outdoors and are willing to donate around 100 hours of time per year to the design of our events.
For those seriously interested in joining our Council, begin by attending a FIRE retreat. Then Pray. A lot. The Holy Spirit will take care of the rest.
