Set a Fire

Hey guys,

Just got back last night from a weekend in Tucson, Arizona for the launch service of a new church planting there.  I was able to come in on Friday afternoon and join the team sharing our faith and passing out invitations on campus and in the surrounding neighborhoods on Friday afternoon and all day Saturday.  It was so invigorating for my faith and a great way to have our souls set on fire – sharing the good news.  Been a while since I met so many people in a short amount of time, and there are so many open students at the U of A campus, it will be amazing to see what God will do in the months ahead.  It was encouraging to see 470 people in attendance at the launch service!

I wanted to repost this great song and posting from worship leader and youth minister Ross Lippencott of the NY Church.  It really ministered to my soul this morning, thinking about the great weekend and wanting to stay connected to God, keep the spirit alive in my life this week.  So, to repost from  Ross’ blog…


Hey all !!!Its been a while since my last post – It was a crazy summer and a last couple months – in a good way !!! 🙂 Today we learned a new song in the NJ Region of the NYC Church called “Set A Fire” by United Pursuit (a worship band out of Knoxville TN).  We have been singing another one of their songs called“Nothing I Hold Onto” for a while but I didn’t make the connection that it was the same band until I looked this song up online after my friend Damon emailed me a link to a youtube video of “Set A Fire” suggesting that I teach it at our Sunday worship service.  Our NJ region Fall Theme is SOUL WARS …

…and there is a great line in this song that goes “set a fire down in my soul that I can’t contain, that I can’t control” … So when I checked this song out, I LOVED IT !!! for many reasons.   Its a really accessible and easy to learn worship song, which seems simple at first and yet is so deep and passionate.  Here are the lyrics:

Lyrics by Will Reagan & United Pursuit
“There’s no place that I’d rather be
There’s no place that I’d rather be
There’s no place that I’d rather be
Than here in your love
Here in your love
So set a fire down in my soul
That I can’t contain
That I can’t control
I want more of you God
I want more of you God”

I hope this song encourages you as much as it has encouraged me !!! Much love !!!

    Drew me to tears! I want more of HIM! What a beautiful way to worship!

  2. That’s so great that you got to help out at Tucson! I love hearing about their growth. A brother from my region, LAICOC North, moved there to help out. It is always encouraging to know God’s work is being done. =)
