Pastors Frank and Bobby Pot graduated in 2001 from FSM and founded FIRE Church NL in 2009. The focus is to change the Netherlands through prayer and fasting and to disciple radical followers of Jesus.
Shortly after God encountered Frank and Bobby during a Christmas play they gave their lives to Christ in 1997. When they heard of God’s Revival in Brownsville Pensacola, with hearts yearning for more of God, they decided to travel to see the revival first-hand. Set ablaze with revival fire, they decided to sign up for the Brownsville School of Ministry which later turned into FIRE School of Ministry in 2001. After they graduated, they were sent back to The Netherlands as missionaries to bring the fire of God to the Netherlands and Europe. FIRE Rotterdam was founded and ministry outreaches, prayer meetings, and worship meetings quickly followed.
Out of these times of prayer and intercession multiple large-scale events were birthed. In 2000 at The Call DC, God spoke to Frank’s heart to gather the nation for a solemn assembly according to Joel 2:15. In 2008 Frank and Bobby gathered the intercessors to humble themselves, fast and pray and seek God’s face. Frank initiated 'We choose for unity' which resulted in a historic day where the leaders from the major denominations came together in 2012 for a solemn assembly. Their desire to see a nation being changed to prayer and fasting continues is burning to see the promise of the Lord in Malachi 4:6 fulfilled in our nation. To see Him turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers!
In 2009 God started to speak through several leaders to Frank and Bobby that it was time to plant a Church. FIRE Church NL had its first service in January 2010 and ever since there is only one desire: to see the Altar of the Word, the Altar of Intercession and the Altar of Worship being restored in our nation. Frank and Bobby are pioneering this Community of believers with a burning desire for God's manifest Presence.
In 2012 the Lord clearly confirmed His desire to launch a Bible school. Not just a school but a spiritual culture. FIRE School of Ministry Europe was launched in January 2014 as a school devoted to raising up passionate disciples of Christ, trained and equipped to preach the Gospel and spread revival across the nations.
