is the missionary sending arm of FIRE Church and FIRE School of Ministry (FSM) and is located in Concord, North Carolina. (See links for further information) At this time we have missionaries who are serving in full time service to their field of choice. We are also establishing bases in various countries of the world in conjunction with veteran missionaries currently on the field. These bases will be used not only for full time missionaries, but also for extended cross-cultural training for missionary interns. These bases are used as launching points for future church planting as the new missionaries and interns mature. We are continually involved in evangelism, discipleship, orphanages and feeding programs, as well as church planting.
