Igniting a passion for Christ in kids and youth


Wildfire is a Christian youth group that aims to inspire kids and youth to live a life of purpose and meaning.

We believe that every child is unique and has a God-given purpose, and we strive to create a safe and nurturing environment where they can discover and develop their talents and abilities.

We run a weekly discipleship group, tailored for every age group from 3 to 18 years old. Each activity has been planned for kids and youth who want to grow in their relationship with God. Our goal is to lead children, youth and families in knowing God, bringing Him joy, and together making Him and His Kingdom known. See more details about our values in the KKI international website. 

Once a term, we also run Open Hill, an engaging and interactive experience designed for kids between 7 and 11 years old. Through a variety of stations and activities, children have the wonderful opportunity to explore Christian beliefs and values.

The event features activities like dance, drumming, electronics, bakery, games, gardening, art, and more. Kids will be grouped into teams of up to 12, allowing them to participate in each station and make the most of this enriching experience. Check out more here!

This summer, we are partnering with YWAM The King’s Lodge to bring a multi-generational outreach team to France during the 2024 Olympics. Go to our website here for more information! 



Our ministry is run by a team of passionate and dedicated YWAM workers who are committed to making a positive impact in the lives of kids and youth. We offer a wide range of opportunities for volunteers to serve in various roles, including:

  • Group leaders
  • Worship leaders
  • Event coordinators
  • Administrative assistants
  • Social media managers
  • Photographers and videographers 

Here are some testimonials from parents and volunteers who have been impacted by our ministry:

My kids love going to Wildfire! They have fun, they’ve grown in their knowledge and love for the Bible, and they have become more confident in who God is and who they are in Him. Grateful for such a high quality ministry for my children to be part of!


The commitment of the Wildfire team is above and beyond. I’m so grateful for all the seeds that have been sown into my child’s life through this program.
