Kindling Fires: A New Monastic Order

Order Name: Kindling Fires: A New Monastic Order

Kindling Fires: A New Monastic Order is a religious order and para-church ministry of Christians who are vowed to discipleship, prayer, service, and spiritual renewal. We are affiliated with The Anthem Network, and we are open to lay and ordained members of all Christian traditions.

Jesus said, “Come, follow Me” (Matthew 4:19). Our Order is committed to the example of the early followers of Jesus, the Church at Pentecost, the early Christian monastics (such as the desert fathers/mothers), and contemporary New Monastic communities. We are an order open to all followers of the Way of Jesus Christ. We are welcoming to all, regardless of anyone’s denominational background, political party, class, race, gender, sexual orientation, or age. We are all one in Christ (1 Corinthians 12:12-14, Galatians 3:26-28, Colossians 3:11).

The Anthem Network ( is a family of affirming churches and ministries within the Convergence and Independent Sacramental movements.
