The Bonfire

Bonfire is a gathering of NAB leaders who have given themselves to joining God on mission in their various contexts. It is a time to build into deep community with one another, receive inspiration and continue training together.

Over the last number of years, Bonfire has become a treasured time for leaders across the NAB to gather together to reflect on the missional/formational journey we are on as a conference. We 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, Year of Bonfire, 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.

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.
