FIRE FALL

Tonight is the last night of this three day spiritual conference at Southeastern University called Fire Fall. This conference’s speakers were Goodie Goodloe from Mosaic Church in Los Angeles, Calif. and Jeff Countryman Youth Pastor at Victory Church in Lakeland, Fla. Goodie Goodloe was the morning speaker and Jeff Countryman was the evening speaker. Both of these men brought forth powerful messages. From inspiring messages such as, “Your test can become your testimony” to “Do you spend as much time with God as you do in the mirror.”

My favorite part about Fire Fall was the baptisms. If you have never been baptized you should really consider it because all baptism is is an expression of surrender and acknowledging Jesus’ death on the cross, being raised from the dead and making you new again. As the worship band was playing the song that said, “You make beautiful things, you make beautiful things out of dust. You make beautiful things, you make beautiful things out of us” the screens would show live footage of students being baptized in the Sportsplex’s pool.  It was such an amazing experience as you could hear the crowd cheer for the people being baptized. To top it off, Jeff Countryman did a human video to the music artist Carmen’s song “Champion” at the end of Fire Fall.

This year was the first year I was able to attend Fire Fall and really enjoyed the conference. It is such a great opportunity to not only earn the prized chapel credits that students need, but to glean wisdom and knowledge from the speakers and your peers. The department DSF (Discipleship and Spiritual Formation) put together great stations at the beginning of each service from hand washing, to seed planting of dreams, to live artist painting, to journal writings and many more stations and displays.
