Over the last number of years, Bonfire has been a time for leaders across the NAB to gather together to reflect on the missional/formational journey we are on as a conference. It is a time to reconnect with ministry friends, make new ones, and deepen the relationships among this community of leaders.

Our Bonfire gatherings are open to anyone who has gone through Blue Ocean, Light Blue Ocean, or Ethos. If that is you and you’re not already receiving our Bonfire updates, contact Sara-May Cardy to be added to the list.

As a wrap-up to our Year of Bonfire meetings, we our hoping to have our 2021 Bonfire gathering as a virtual event in mid-late September. As soon as we are able to finalize all of the details, a note will be sent out to everyone on the Bonfire list.

Stay tuned for information about Bonfire 2022.

Year of Bonfire

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, we were not able to meet for our regular Bonfire gathering in 2020, so in its place, we met monthly for A Year of Bonfire. It was a powerful time to connect with leaders across the conference as we processed conversations around spiritual formation and joining God on mission.

We want to thank everyone who was part of the Year of Bonfire community. It was a blessing to meet with you monthly. We know that within each conversation there was a lot to take in, so we have compiled the recordings for the year into one folder on our Vimeo site.

Make sure to join us for our Bonfire Reunion gathering in September.
