Upcoming Events & Activities
World Police and Fire Games: August 7-16, 2017
This is a biennial athletic event, open to all active and retired law enforcement and fire service personnel throughout the world. Firefighters For Christ has had a presence at this event for many years. We not only host a booth at the Expo, we have athletes from different agencies/countries that represent FFC and compete in a variety of events. These Games are held all over the world, however, this year it will be in our own backyard, with various competitions being held throughout the greater Los Angeles area. If you are interested in competing or volunteering in any capacity, contact Mike Bell at: Click to Email or (909) 987-2546.
Hume New England (Servants Week): September 24-30, 2017
Hume New England is an extension of Hume Lake Christian Camps and located in the beautiful Berkshires of Southwestern Massachusetts. Servants Week is an opportunity for volunteers to help get the camp ready for the next season of campers. The past several years a group from Firefighters For Christ have taken this trip to New England for this purpose. It is a great opportunity to work alongside some wonderful people, for an excellent cause, at such a beautiful time of year. Fall is literally in the air...the leaves are a vibrant mix of reds, yellow, and orange, so why not extend your stay and spend a few days with your spouse driving the countryside. For more information contact: Meagan Duffy at Click to Email or (413) 528-3604. More info can be found on their website at: humenewengland.squarespace.com
Ecuador Training Trip (train the trainer): October 1-7, 2017
Our first training trip to Ecuador was in October of 2015. We saw God do a tremendous work on that trip. Many decisions were made for Jesus and lives were changed for eternity. One life significantly impacted was that of Camacho Ramiro, the Fire Chief of Portovelo. He has become a close brother and recently visited us while we were in Ensenada. He would like to have a group from FFC return to Ecuador to work alongside some of his personnel and provide similar training for some firefighters from Peru. He is a man with a vision to see God move in the fire service throughout South America. If you would like to be part of this team contact: Joe Lindaman at: Click to Email or (661) 305-3114.
Training Trip to the Philippines: January or February of 2018
The largest chapter of Firefighters For Christ is in the Philippines. This chapter was formed shortly after FFC sent an Emergency Relief Team to Tacloban in December of 2013, following the aftermath of Typhoon Yolanda, the Philippine's deadliest typhoon on record. Since then, we have sent two Training Teams to different islands in the Philippines and have seen many decisions for Christ. Solid relationships have been formed with some of their highest ranking officials and they have asked that we return again in 2018. Our next trip will be to the island of Mindanao. Exact dates are pending but if interested, contact Pat Stilson at: Click to Email
Hume Lake Firefighter’s Retreat: April 6-8, 2018
This is FFC’s biggest event of the year (See the flyer and video on our home page). This year's speaker is Phil Scott from Northern Ireland. You will not only love his accent and quick wit, but will be inspired by his passion, and challenged by his message. As a reminder, Hume’s Retreat starts Friday evening, but you can extend the weekend by attending FFC’s International Event which starts Thursday afternoon. Adding the extra day (arriving Thursday) is more relaxing and makes the weekend seem so much longer. You can register for either or both…we recommend both. Click on our Hume Lake link for more info and registration. Housing at this event will fill up, but get on the waiting list, as private housing always seem to come available.
