Ablaze Youth Ministries

We aim to set ablaze a decaying generation with God’s Word, Jesus’ Love, and the Holy Spirit’s Fire.
Ablaze Youth Ministries exists to lead this generation into a new era of God’s Kingdom here on Earth. By exemplifying Jesus’ character, the Holy Spirit’s influence in our lives, and the impact of intentional prayer.
