39 Years Serving Indigenous Communities
In Michigan And Across
What Is 4 Fires
4 Fires is a contextual Native American ministry developed by Natives for Natives and those with Native hearts. Five hundred years of misguided evangelism has left generations of Native Americans believing they are less than Creator made them to be.
Our passion is to be fully Native and fully follwers of Jesus.
Our desire is to redeem our culture for the glory of God just as the western culture has done.
Our prayer is to invite Jesus into our Native culture and transform it from within.
Contextual ministry is the process of worshipping the triune God from within the Native culture using redeemed cultural expressions like the drum, flute, dance and smoking our prayers. God the Father, coming to the earth in the form of a human being, is the greatest example of contextualized ministry that ever was. Jesus, who is God, became immersed in the historical, social, religious, linguistic and cultural contexts of the Hebrew people.
