Announcing the October 13-14 CU Fire National Simulcast Retreat 

By grace ann arvey


CU Fire Retreats—quarterly simulcast retreats for believers across America—help participants experience spiritual rejuvenation and encouragement with their friends, their church, or any other Christian community to which they belong, from the comfort of their own homes. The next CU Fire Retreat will take place October 13-14, 2023.

CU Fire Retreats are a way to intentionally draw close to God by seeking Him through 1.5 days of spiritual activities with Christian friends. Participating small groups are led by volunteer hosts — like you — who gather friends together to devotedly seek the Lord through a powerful, easy-to-follow program designed by Christian Union, including:


  • Four simulcast teaching messages
  • Small group prayer
  • Worship
  • Bible Reading and Discussion
  • Fasting
  • Inspirational Videos


The theme for the upcoming October 2023 Fire Retreat is Scriptural Immersion Journey.

The speaker lineup features Rice Broocks, author of God’s Not Dead, and includes the following additional speakers: Matt Bennett, Founder and CEO of Christian Union; Qwynn Gross, Cofounder of Hope Cathedral, and Dr. Chuck Hetzler, Vice President of Biblical Theology for Christian Union.


Because of the purpose and focus of this designated time, CU Fire Retreats are designed for participants who can be present for the entirety of the time. If schedules prohibit someone from being present, then participants are encouraged to wait and attend the next CU Fire Retreat (they typically take place every three months).


Registration is open to anyone interested in participating. Fees for the upcoming CU Fire Retreat are $19 before September 29 and $29 after. The number of life-changing testimonies from CU Fire Retreats has been astounding. One participant, Emily, said, “the two retreats I’ve attended so far have been monumental. They have grown my spiritual walk like nothing else.” 


A previous host (Guy, from Texas) summarized, "I believe that hosting a CU Fire retreat will be looked back upon as an invitation from the Lord to join Him in His desire to bring revival to the people of God and an awakening to our country."

Christian Union America offers spiritually transformative events centered on God in accordance with the instruction and promise in Scripture: “Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you.” (James 4:8) As more and more Christians dedicate time to seek God and grow stronger in Him, we have confidence that we will experience His increased power and presence in our families, churches, communities, and nation.
