Why do we exist?
To see the nations filled with churches walking in God's love and giving it away until the whole world knows God's glory.
How do we do it?
To multiply healthy, supernatural churches, ministries and missions in multiple expressions so the world encounters God's transforming presence.
What does it look like? We as a people are called to;
Have fun and give your life away
Catch The Fire is an international movement and large family based out of its headquarters in Toronto, Canada. 1994, led by John and Carol Arnott, Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship became known throughout the world as a place where the Holy Spirit was poured out in unprecedented and powerful ways. This revival was known as the "Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship Revival". This revival, known as the "Toronto Blessing," had a global impact in hundreds of countries. A few years later, it transitioned to Catch the Fire, and in 2015, the senior leadership baton was passed to Duncan & Kate Smith.
Michael and Rachel came to Japan in 1999, became leaders of a church in Sano in 2003, and later became leaders of the Arise5 network founded by Ron Circa.
In 2020, Arise5 and Catch The Fire merged to create a greater impact in Asia by connecting hearts and visions through supernatural connections, and in April 2020, Catch The Fire Japan began as a hub for Asia.
We are now leading a dynamic ministry and movement as Catch The Fire.
