HistoryFor years, people in Montana had been longing for more training in the ways of God and scripture, to know Him and His love, and to walk in His supernatural power. Many of them had heard of the new "schools of supernatural ministry" rising around the nation, but they didn't feel called to quit their jobs or move their families to another state. They needed something powerful—and something that could be experienced within the context of real life where they live. After receiving many prophetic words, The River decided it was time to plunge ahead. With the help of Kris Vallotton, Bonnie Chavda, and Randy Clark's team, Fire School was born. Since 2009, we have had over 70 full-time students, including students from overseas.Fire School is a Christian ministry training school with an emphasis on impartation and equipping students for a life of supernatural discipleship. The school specializes in training radical followers of Jesus who are ready to be mobilized into the greatest harvest of souls in Church history. Fire School is a non-accredited academic institution. Courses are only offered on-site at The River in Kalispell, MT. A Certificate of Completion will be awarded for each year of training undertaken. Fire School is a ministry of The River.


The courses of Fire School consist of a mixture of live teaching, practical application, hands-on outreach, Bible and book reading assignments, and video teaching.


The Fire School student body is diverse in age, culture, ministry experience and educational accomplishments. From high school graduates to retirees, all come together seeking more of God through this school of supernatural ministry. God’s truth, love, and power are key values of our school and are reflected in our worship, outreach and personal relationships.



Why fire? Because “our God is a consuming fire” (Heb 12:29) and this present unfolding move of the Spirit will be released by disciples who have been touched by and release the fire of God. Their lives will be marked by the following fiery characteristics: power, passion, purity, and purpose.



“Be assured today that the Lord your God is the one who goes across ahead of you like a devouring fire. He will destroy them; He will subdue them before you. And you will drive them out and annihilate them quickly” (Deuteronomy 9:3). Elijah was a man like us who brought the forces of the kingdom of darkness to their knees by bringing a confrontation of power through fire.
