Here are answers to some of the most frequently asked questions we receive.
Please be advised our posted event policy will always override any answers found on this page.
A: We are considering requiring tickets this year to help us better plan for the number of people who will attend but, if so, they will be free! We want everyone to be able to attend so we do not charge an admission. However, we will receive an offering to help cover the cost of the event so, if you can, please plan to give to help keep En Fuego going!
A: En Fuego is Spanish for “On Fire”. The event is a one-day rally where students from every denomination and background come together for the purpose of worship and seeing Jesus Christ change lives. An outdoor event, the rally has a very intense yet intimate camp-like feel and some have referred to it as “the Christian Woodstock of your generation.”
A: En Fuego is a rain-or-shine event. We have a covered stage and, if it rains, come prepared; we will just get wet as we worship and praise God! The show may be temporarily delayed but the event will not be cancelled. (Of course, if extremely dangerous or life threatening weather occurs, we will follow the advice of the Emergency Management team who is onsite. If the event is already underway, official word will come from the stage from a representative of the En Fuego Ministries board of directors. Please listen for the official announcement in such an event.)

A: En Fuego is a worship experience for believers and an evangelistic outreach for the lost. We encourage everyone to bring a friend who doesn’t know Jesus as his or her personal Savior. En Fuego takes place in an open field and has a camp- or music festival-like atmosphere. A highlight each year is the lighting of the huge En Fuego bonfire. It symbolizes the whole purpose of the event, to see people “ON FIRE” for Jesus. Please pray for your group and all the details surrounding En Fuego.
