What is the Wildfire Retreat?
This retreat is a spiritual adventure; a journey to the very heart of God. You will experience the personal guidance of the Holy Spirit into places in God that are reserved only for spiritual adventurers. Click here for more about the Wildfire Retreats...
What should I expect at this retreat?
The most exciting aspect of the Wildfire Retreat is that you never know what to expect. No one knows. No two days or sessions are the same. One moment it's chaotic, noisy childlike praise and play. Next moment everyone is rolling on the floor, screaming, laughing, speaking in tongues. You come at another time and it's all serene as everyone is wrapped up in an in-depth teaching and study of the word.
Wildfire Retreat sessions are completely driven by the Holy Spirit; and no one can tell what He's going to do at any point in time during the retreat.

What airport should I use if I'm flying into Guntersville Alabama?
Birmingham–Shuttlesworth International Airport (BHM) is the closest.
It is about 74 miles from Guntersville. So a little over an hours drive.
What transportation options are available between the airport and the retreat venue?
There are commercial shuttles that can take you from the airport to the retreat venue. You can catch one of these shuttles just outside of the airport's baggage claim area. These shuttles come and go frequently.
You can also find plenty of taxis just outside of the baggage claim area if you'd prefer to take a taxi. You can rent a car at the airport as well if you'd like to have a car during your stay.
I'm arriving by car. What's the parking situation?
You can simply park your car at your retreat chalet parking lot.
What should I wear to this retreat?
Wear whatever makes you feel comfortable.
We expect extraordinary manifestations of the Holy Spirit during this retreat—including intense and prolonged moments of Holy Spirit drunkenness and other physical effects. So you may want to consider this in your choice of dress.
What can I bring into this retreat?
You should not forget your bible.
You may also want to bring your journaling materials.
Remember your toiletries and other personal essentials.
What's the refund policy after I register for this retreat?
Your registration is non-refundable, so there are no refunds or exchanges on tickets once purchased. If you sign up, please show up.
Can I attend only part of this retreat (and pay a lower registration price)?
No, Wildfire Retreats are meant to be experienced in their entirety, not in parts. Later material builds upon earlier material. If you expect to miss some of it, it's probably not a good idea to attend. Plan to be there for every day of it.
Can I record this retreat (audio or video)?
Please don't record the retreat. People often share intimate details of their lives at these retreats. We can't authorize anyone to record what's being shared in the room.
These retreats are meant to be live, interactive experiences. If we do a retreat that will be recorded, it will be announced in advance, so everyone knows that up front.
Is childcare provided?
No childcare provided. Children 10 and above are welcome using your discretion.
What provisions and services are covered under the ticket fee?
Your ticket covers the following:
- Four nights Sharing a Chalet . Up to 4 retreat participants per Chalet. Chalets have 1 King bed and 2 Full beds.
- Meeting room for 3 days
- Dinner for 4 nights
How long does each retreat session last?
Each Retreat session will be completely led by the Holy Spirit.
How can I contact the organizer with any questions?
