They asked each other, ”Were not our hearts burning within us while he talked with us on the road and opened the Scriptures to us?”


The purpose of Hearts On Fire is to share the Gospel with middle school, high school and college age young people and fan the flame of Jesus within their hearts, challenging them to a dynamic walk and commitment in Christ.

Hearts On Fire is an evangelistic youth conference that began in 1987 in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. The desire of Hearts On Fire is to see middle school, high school, and college age young people find an intimate and personal relationship with Jesus Christ. We passionately reach out to believers by encouraging them in their walk with the Lord while also challenging them to walk in the truth and integrity of Christ.

Over the years Hearts On Fire has grown from 150 to over 16,000 attendees. We have seen literally thousands of teenagers come to faith in Christ and countless lives changed. Many young men and women have made decisions to surrender to full time ministry while attending the youth conference.

Hearts On Fire has welcomed the likes of such speakers as Louie Giglio, Will Graham, Kirk Cameron, Tim Tebow, Tony Nolan, David Nasser, Dave Edwards, Greg Stier, Ken Freeman, Darren Whitehead, Sean McDowell, Clayton King, Derwin Gray, Wade Morris, Ed Newton, Inky Johnson and the Skit Guys. Hearts On Fire has had concerts provided by the phenomenal music of Third Day, Casting Crowns, Kristian Stanfill, Passion Music, Zach Williams, David Crowder, Big Daddy Weave, for KING & COUNTRY, Tenth Avenue North, 7th Time Down, Newsboys, MercyMe, Lauren Daigle and TobyMac.

The main youth conference is held at the LeConte Center in Pigeon Forge, TN, annually on the weekend before Thanksgiving. In 2011 & 2012 Hearts On Fire held a youth conference in Branson, Missouri, from 2013—2106 a youth conference was held on the campus of Charleston Southern University in Charleston, South Carolina, and a youth conference was held in Charleston, WV, in 2017.
