For over 16 years Pastor Carter Conlon has been a spiritual father to the Irish Church and a true friend, partner and supporter of SummerFire Conference. His love for Ireland is a continued source of blessing and encouragement and we are thrilled to have him join us again in 2022. As the senior pastor of Times Square Church in New York City, his ministry inspires millions of people globally, through national and international radio, television networks and conferences every year. Yet, with such a demanding schedule, he has made SummerFire Conference a staple of his annual calendar! Thank you Pastor Carter!

    Friends of Summerfire

    Starting from the position that God is Worthy of all Worship and Deserving of all praise, and understanding that we can boldly enter into His presence as Jesus has made the way for us; there is always a great sense of liberty; excitement; integrity and exuberance in the Worship at Summerfire Conference. With Musicians from all over the country and the Congregation from various corners of the World, the sound is both unique and familiar: it’s the sound of God’s people worshipping Him with all their hearts. God’s presence has been evident in the Worship for all the past conferences, and we are confident that this year will be even better than before.We encourage you to come to magnify God and as we Magnify Him with Singleness of Purpose, He will glorify Himself in our lives.
