Fire Ministries is all about sharing Christ and Him Crucified around the world! It can be difficult to share the spirit of a ministry through words and pictures, but I hope that somehow the things contained in this website can give you a sense of our heart to love Jesus and bless others! My name is Kelly Koshatka and I am the Founder and Director of Fire Ministries... but really I am just someone who loves Jesus. The most important thing I could say about myself is that I love Jesus, and the cry of my heart is for His increase and my decrease.
God first called me to the Irish about seventeen years ago. In October of 1999 I went to Ireland as a tourist. God began to move on that trip by His Spirit… opening doors, hearts, and soon the tourist trip turned into a missionary journey! Several years before I first came to Ireland there was a prophesy that a handmaiden would come to serve and help unite the churches in Ireland. On that first trip several of the churches I ministered in embraced me as that handmaiden, a servant to the precious saints of that Land. Soon I was surrounded with Irish hearts and supportive ministers confirming the birth of “Fire Ministries”. I have been invited back to Ireland time and again to bring more Jesus. During these past years the Lord has continued to flow in this ministry to knit hearts in the Life and love of Christ all over the island of Ireland. The heart of this ministry is to bless, honor and serve the precious saints in Ireland and around the world. There is a deep love for Jesus in the hearts of many in Ireland, and God has used this ministry to help “ignite” those sparks until the hearts are ablaze with the living Christ. God has also used and is using this ministry to unite these dear saints one with another across Ireland and Europe.
We minister with Jesus-loving people of all denominations that are knit together by a common love for Christ, His Cross, and His Life in us! We have served and continue to serve in areas of ministry such as children’s bible clubs, women’s conferences, preaching the Word, music ministry (including teaching people to compose worship songs), youth ministry, outreach, evangelism, hosting international conferences, prayer retreats and sabbaticals, and young adult retreats. We are involved in producing Christian literature, studies, children's materials and original worship music. Kelly and Fire Ministries leadership (consisting of an all Irish team) host an international conference every spring in Ireland for those who hunger to know the Crucified Christ as their Life.
This ministry is all about letting Jesus live through us by serving others. No matter what area we may be ministering in, our greatest desire is to glorify God by letting His Son live through us in our attitudes and ways. When we are invited to minister somewhere, our goal is to build-up and bless that ministry, serving their needs and agenda and not our own.
It is our Vision to spread the message of Christ and Him crucified into Ireland and every land through working with indigenous ministries. We do this through "team ministry" taking groups who are dedicated to lifting up Jesus as our Life in foreign lands. We are committed to:
*Working with Pastors and Ministers who are dedicated to the message of Christ and Him Crucified. *Serving their needs and agenda and not our own. *Helping young people get "On Fire With God's Desire" as they come to know Christ as their Life as well as providing opportunities to pour Him out in ministry. *Putting Jesus First in our ministry in Spirit and Nature. *Edifying the work God is doing in His Church to bring forth His Son.
Fire Ministries Irish Leadership Team
It has been my privilege and blessing to minister with precious brothers and sisters in Ireland. Without them, this ministry could not function. I am so thankful for their hearts of love for Jesus and their willingness to selflessly pour Him out for others.
Thank you Jesus for the rich heritage of Christ Crucified in the Irish people. Thank you for all the blessings we have received from this Island and its people who have shared your Life with others over many generations. May You continue to pour out Your life through all those who dwell on this island and love You. May we bless Your Body in Ireland. Amen!
