My name is Kelly Koshatka and I am the Founder and Director of Fire Ministries International, 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 Jesus to live through me and pour out His love to others.
God first called me into the ministry 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! Miracles happened as God moved, and soon I was surrounded with Irish hearts and supportive ministers confirming the birth of “Fire Ministries”. For the past 20 years God has continued to flow in this ministry to knit hearts in the Life and love of Christ all over the island of Ireland as well as other countries and the United States.
I 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! I have served and continue to serve on a full time basis in the areas of ministry such as children’s ministry, teen ministry, women’s conferences, outreach, evangelism, weekly bible teaching and prayer meetings, hosting international conferences, music ministry (including teaching people to compose worship songs), prayer retreats and sabbaticals, and young adult retreats. I am involved in producing Christian literature, studies, children's materials, original worship music, and films. Our Fire Ministries web-site freely shares the materials that God has given us to bless others with, including several full children's bible club curriculum, online bible courses for bible students, study manuals, booklets and books, books for children, original worship Cd’s for adults and music Cd’s for children and infants, skits, live performances and a video series for kids. All of these materials lift up Christ Crucified as the Life of the believer and are original materials given by the Lord and freely shared with others through this website.
My heart is that in all these things, Jesus would be known in His Lamb nature and His love and life could be experienced and received. In every area of serving I desire that Jesus would live through me in my attitudes and ways. That it would truly be "not I but Christ". This is the greatest ministry of all to me, that Jesus Himself could be expressed and glorified to the joy of the Father and blessing to others. The ministers, leaders, and teams that are a part of Fire Ministries share this heart and passion that in all things God would be glorified through Christ living through us in His Lamb nature. The greatest ministry of all is to the heart of God.
It is the vision and ministry of our church to spread the message of Christ and Him crucified into every land through working with indigenous ministries. We come to know Jesus as our Life in our services, retreats, bible studies and prayer meetings, and we "Go To Show Him" through "team ministry" by 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. *Providing fellowship, edification though weekly services, the Word of God, and opportunities to share with others.

It has been my privilege and blessing to minister with precious brothers and sisters. Without them, this church 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. Jesus, 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!
Join us on our personal journey through the book of Daniel as Daniel and us allow the Lamb of God to become our inward government. Let us begin this new year with a new determination and desire for Jesus to take His throne in our hearts!
