Receive fresh spiritual strength and vision to fulfill God’s purpose for yourself and your community!

“I SO appreciate CU's leadership in calling all believers to an extraordinary, wholehearted, and relentless pursuit of God. There's an urgency! Thanks for inviting me into this. It was such a privilege to be part of this weekend's Fire! *And count me IN for the next one!*”  – Christopher

Christian Union Day and Night strengthens local churches and Christians across America to seek God wholeheartedly for His power and presence. CU Fire equips believers in their walks with God so that they have the vision and ability to step out in faith and make a difference in their world.

CU Fire

Christian Union Fire is a 1.5 or 2.5 day nationwide simulcast retreat for small groups. All groups follow a schedule of focused time in group prayer, fasting, Bible study, teaching, listening to God, and breaking bread together.

Anyone can apply to host a CU Fire group, and groups can meet in person or virtually. 

Christian Union has found that short, focused times of drawing near to God have an incredibly positive impact, providing Christian strengthening and renewed vision. We invite you to join us by being a host for one of these powerful retreats of seeking God together!

October 14, 6-9pm - October 15, 7am-8pm, 2022
January 27, 6-9pm - January 28, 7am-8pm, 2023 
April 21, 6-9pm - April 22, 7am-8pm, 2023

"We need these events to spread across our country like a fire." - Marty

“I’ve been enriched beyond words. I am now looking to God to do the extraordinary in the lives of those around me through earnest prayer. The weekend raised my spiritual temperature and sharpened my senses.  I am ready for battle.” – Olga S

What is required to be a host? (See also CU Fire FAQ)

CU Fire Hosts facilitate a small group of 8-12 individuals for a CU Fire retreat.

We have 3 ways you can host a group: 

Host a small group in your home – Do you know people who would love to receive spiritual refreshment and renewal? Invite friends to join you! 

Host a private online group via Zoom – This is ideal for friends and family who live out of town to join you for this impactful time!

Host an open online group via Zoom – You will facilitate a small group of Christians who sign-up online. 

CU Fire Hosts will receive two hours of CU Fire training to learn best practices for inviting guests, preparing their homes or online groups and leading the CU Fire retreat. They will receive a detailed CU Fire Host Manual and must agree to Christian Union’s statements of faith and ethics. 

CU Fire In-Home Hosts will need technical capabilities to stream or cast a computer/laptop/iPad to a large TV screen for all guests to view the event. All worship and teachings will be played via an online streaming software (i.e. Zoom). If you need assistance with this, please contact us.None

What is required to be an attendee?

We ask that everyone fast during the day of CU Fire. Fasting provides intimacy with God and spiritual power that will amplify our time together. Groups will break their fast by eating dinner together. 

Because of the purpose and focus of this designated time, CU Fire is designed for participants who can be present for the entirety of the time (see sample schedule below). If schedules prohibit someone from being present, then participants are encouraged to wait and to attend the next CU Fire.  

CU Fire Attendees will incur a registration fee of $30. This helps offset some of the costs for CU Fire. Registration fees are waived for hosts. 

“CU Fire was amazing. The way I was able to meet with God and connect to others has broken some chains off of my heart!! The experience was invaluable.” – Kimberly“

"And all the assembly of those who had returned from the captivity made booths and lived in the booths, for from the days of Jeshua the son of Nun to that day the people of Israel had not done so. And there was very great rejoicing.  And day by day, from the first day to the last day, he read from the Book of the Law of God. They kept the feast seven days, and on the eighth day there was a solemn assembly, according to the rule." – Nehemiah 8:17-18

"The inhabitants of one city shall go to another, saying, ‘Let us go at once to entreat the favor of the LORD and to seek the LORD of hosts; I myself am going.’" – Zechariah 8:21 

"And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another--and all the more as you see the Day approaching." – Hebrews 10:24

We are expectant and anticipating a great work of the Holy Spirit during this time! We hope you'll join us as we seek God together!

Over the last three centuries, revivals have had a great impact. Between 1730 and 1830 successive movements of the Holy Spirit brought a large proportion of the population into the churches. These awakenings are not ultimately the result of marketing or organization. They come, by God’s grace and in his time, in response to extraordinary prayer. Christian Union is making a serious attempt to spark this kind of prayer and devotion. I welcome it, and I’m very encouraged by it.
