Dear Parent/Guardian,


Thank you so much for allowing your teenager to be a part of an amazing experience!

Acquire the Fire is a branch of Teen Mania Ministries which was born in 1986 by Ron and Katie

Luce. Their mission statement: Our heartbeat is to provoke a young generation to passionately

pursue Jesus Christ and take His life-giving message to the ends of the earth. Since then Teen

Mania has grown offering several gateways to pursue Jesus Christ. Including: The Honor

Academy Internship- College level leadership training, Extreme Camps, School of Worship, &

Global Expeditions-for mission trips.


When I was a teenager, my youth group attended Acquire the Fire twice. Not only did I enjoy the

fellowship, but I learned so much about how God loves me and how he created me to be

different than what the world wanted of me. While attending during my sophomore year in high

school I filled out a postcard stating that I wanted more information about going with Global

Expeditions on a mission trip. As the years went by I kept using excuses and reasons not to look

at their emails or answer phone calls. Eight years later I went on my very first missions trip with

them to Brazil with students from all over the country. God revealed to me that He can use us no

matter how young or old we may be. The students that I was surrounded with were such an

inspiration and demonstrated God's love on a daily basis. 


This conference will be sure to stir a passion in the students’ lives. I have attached: a permission

slip, an itinerary, a packing check-off list and emergency contact numbers of the adults attending

the event.


There will be several thousand students attending this event and we want to remind all of our

students that as we travel from our city we represent Hillside Church. Disrespectful behavior of

any kind will not be tolerated.


It is very important to us if your child wants to attend this event. The total cost of the conference

experience is $70. This includes meals, hotel, gas and the ticket to enter the conference. We are

asking for a $20 deposit as soon as possible to save a spot for your child. With only several

weeks until the event we will be hosting fundraisers on the dates found on the next page. Please

feel free to contact me with any further questions.


Please keep all of us in your prayers as we fund raise and attend the event.
