Evangelist John & Rev Bobette Hampton, Founders
Matthew 28:19-20 (MSG): Jesus, undeterred, went right ahead and gave his charge: “God authorized and commanded me to commission you: Go out and train everyone you meet, far and near, in this way of life, marking them by baptism in the threefold name: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Then instruct them in the practice of all I have commanded you. I’ll be with you as you do this, day after day after day, right up to the end of the age.”

Emerging Praise In Christ (E.P.I.C.) Sign Language Ministry
As we go through life daily, we sometimes do not take the time to realize how blessed we are. Many have all 5 senses; taste, touch, sight, smell, and hearing. Where one is weak, the others are stronger. EPIC uses American Sign Language to worship God and minister to others, so that they not only learn to appreciate being able to utilize their, sense but so they can for one moment see how the hearing impaired can still experience the anointing and ministering through song by following the hands.
Women of Worth Ministry ~ W.O.W.
As women, we find ourselves wondering what is our Worth, we find ourselves being compared amongst our siblings, friends, coworkers and cliques. We find ourselves being submerged in unhealthy relationships; because we don’t understand the significance of our Worth! There are times women will lower their values just because they forget their worth and start worshipping toxic relationships.
Jeremiah 1:5, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart;” God set us apart in our mother's womb. He knows the purpose, plans and positions in our lives. We must have Trust, Faith and Confidence to depend on him!
The Usher Ministry serves every person that enters Fresh Fire with a personable, loving and accommodating experience; exuding a love for Christ. The ministry also helps provide order to the worship service.
The Culinary Ministry provides meals for numerous occasions: Meetings, Breakfast, Luncheons, Weddings, Funerals, Anniversaries and much more. Through our service, we get the opportunity to connect with the community as well as our Church Family! We often use members of the community and KPEP to help with our events and which also gives us time to evangelize and uplift through the process.
