What is Light the Fire?

Light the Fire (LTF) is an evangelization tool that invites people to come into a church and have a moment to encounter Jesus. It involves an open church with Eucharistic adoration, music ministry, and volunteers ready to welcome people off the street, pray with them, and preach the kerygma. The key invitation is for people to come into the church to light a candle.

Why this event?

Most people in the post-Christendom world have rarely set foot in a church, let alone have positive experiences with church-going people. The purpose of Light the Fire is to have an engagement with people so that they are enticed to return to the Church or even to explore faith in God or relationship with Jesus. Post-modern man does not understand the invitation to come in and pray, to spend time in silence, to encounter Jesus, to go to adoration, etc. The way to get people in is to do something tangible that anyone can do. Everyone can light a candle. With volunteers responding to the promptings of the Holy Spirit, Light the Fire is an avenue for people to move outside of an institutional understanding of the faith to an intentional response to the invitation of Jesus presented by the experience.

What makes Light the Fire successful?

An understanding of all the pieces that come together for a Light the Fire event will help make it successful. Success is not recorded in the numbers of people who cross the threshold of the church, although that is a good indicator. Success is determined by the readiness of the volunteers and the responses of the people who encounter Light the Fire volunteers. Some of the characteristics of a successful Light the Fire include plenty of intercessory prayer, a good location for the event, and a sufficient number of volunteers to minister to visitors. See the LTF Booklet for more information.
