Who We Are

About Us

Catch The Fire is an international family of churches and ministries that was birthed as a result of the incredible revival that began in Toronto in 1994.

Our Story

Catch the Fire Raleigh-Durham is a church family that is committed to seeing the transformation of individuals, families, and the cities around us. We are part of a larger church family that was founded in Toronto, Canada, and our heritage is steeped in revival. There are many prophetic words over the region of North Carolina, and each one of us has a part in seeing the fulfillment of God’s promises in bringing Heaven to earth. We believe that God has an amazing plan and purpose for your life.

Our desire is that as a church community, we support and empower you to go after God’s dream for you. We strongly believe that the Holy Spirit is not limited to church services, which is why we value spreading the love of God in our families, workplaces, local grocery stores, neighborhoods, and so on; wherever you go, the Holy Spirit will move in mighty ways!

We love you. We honor you. Welcome home.
