Ablaze Ministries

So let us tell you a little bit about ourselves…


360° Approach to Ministry

Ablaze Ministries exists to fill a need that is not being met. We provide ministry from a 360° approach by ministering to the youth, parents, and youth ministers. These three main functions of our model have developed into our 3 ministries: Ablaze Youth, Beyond the Pew, and Next Level Ministry.

our Ministries

Ablaze Youth exists to provide consistent, high quality youth ministry to parishes of all sizes. Parishes hire and entrust their youth ministry programs to Ablaze, who find young enthusiastic youth ministers for these parishes. Ablaze trains and supervises their youth ministers as they provide youth ministry in the parish. Ablaze believes that ministry should be done in teams, both for the health of the minister and to the benefit of the whole community. At every level within Ablaze, the individual is being poured into spiritually, trained to be a better minister, and is constantly growing within the community.

Beyond the Pew exists because being a parent is hard. However, being a parent and leading your children in your faith, while also trying to grow your own faith in a world that disparages both, is even more difficult. Beyond the Pew is a community and resource for parents that want to help their kids fall more in love with Jesus while growing in the faith themselves. Beyond the Pew seeks to provide tools and resources to dive deeper in faith and a love of Christ is both parents and their children. Sainthood starts at home, so lets make some saints!

Next Level Ministry exists to foster excellence in ministry leadership. The NLM team has over 40 years of combined ministry experience and countless moments where they have inspired ministry leaders to be more effective, dynamic and committed disciple makers. Next Level Ministry can be hired to speak to your ministry team, consult to coach to teach best practices in a ministry environment, or simply provide a parish with the resources they need to succeed. 


  • Parishes hire an Ablaze team to become partners with Ablaze Ministries.
  • An Ablaze office is in every city where we are partners, which means multiple parish teams work together in the shared office space!
  • Beyond the Pew is an online resource for parents who are trying to continue to grow in their faith! They produce blogs, youtube videos, ebooks, and have an interactive facebook group!
  • Next Level can be hired to train your team, coach you one-on-one, or come to speak at your events!

Who Do Your Kids See You As?

God’s creation set the stage for an adventure in daydreaming: blue skies, cool breeze, and a sunny bright day. Before I knew it, I allowed myself to be swept up into the image of a mighty wind which I assumed, of course, was the Holy Spirit.  I encountered a sense of freedom and began to think about so many things

Does It Draw You Closer To or Further Away from God?

My “go-to” question is always: Does it draw you (me, us) closer to or further away from God?   Recently, one of our sons was curious about the back-story, if you will, about a certain person that prompted him to ask a bunch of demanding statements and probing questions.  He was like, “Mom, just tell me! and don’t you think

#Winning at Parenthood

Not long ago, I was asked by a neighbor friend of mine to watch her 4 year old for a couple of hours. It was no problem; her kids are great and get along with my daughter just fine. It also helps that my husband and I own a Nintendo 64, and the kids love to play our old ‘90’s
