What is CU Fire?
CU Fire is a spiritual retreat where small groups of Christians around America meet for 1.5 or 2.5 days to seek the Lord together. All groups follow the same schedule and watch simulcast messages at times during the retreat. Some groups meet in person, usually at someone’s home, and other groups meet virtually via Zoom.
How do I participate in CU Fire?
You can participate in multiple ways: 1) as a host or as a participant, and 2) in person or online.
Host: Hosts invite their friends to join their CU Fire group, either in their home, at their church, or even via Zoom. A host guides his/her group to follow the CU Fire schedule. Anyone can apply to host a CU Fire group here. If you are a host, your registration fee is waived.
Participant: Participants join a CU Fire group in two ways: they join an in-person group to which they were invited, or they join an online group. Registration to join an online group is here. In-person groups register through a private url given to hosts.

Can I come to CU Fire part of the time instead the whole time?
What makes CU Fires so impactful is the amount of time spent seeking the Lord. If you are unable to attend the entire time, we encourage you to sign up for a future CU Fire when you can for the duration of the event.
What does CU Fire believe? Are they part of a denomination?
CU Fire is a ministry of Christian Union Day and Night. CU Day and Night is a non-denominational Christian ministry which works with Christians from all traditions who have repented of their sins and confess Jesus as Lord and Savior. CU Day and Night’s mission is to strengthen local churches, pastors, and Christians to seek the Lord for revival and reformation in our country. You can read our statement of faith and ethics here.
What are prophetic prayer appointments?
Prophetic prayer appointments give a CU Fire attendee the opportunity to meet with someone gifted in prophecy for 20 minutes. All prophetic ministers are experienced, mature, and vetted by CU.
CU values the supernatural work of God today, including the spiritual gift of prophecy, and we want to make this ministry available to every CU Fire participant who wants to receive it. We realize that not every Christian is open to prophecy and some may not understand much about the gift of prophecy for today.
CU Day and Night has written an article, “Valuing, Weighing, and Testing Prophecy”, on this subject that you can read online. When rightly administered, the gift of prophecy has a wonderful way of building up Christians (1 Corinthians 14:1, 3-4).
