“Fire Press” magazine and Fire On Your Head originally started in 2007 as the title for a podcast two FIRE International missionaries to the Netherlands started as an outgrowth of their nightly accountability Skype conversations at the time.
Being in different cities, Steve Bremner and Dan Slavin spoke regularly over Skype and prayed for each other. Eventually they decided to start their own podcast after realizing how easy it would be to do so.
The two started recording a talk-show style recording and discussed various Pentecostal and charismatic topics from a Biblical perspective.
Dan and Steve picked the name ‘Fire On Your Head” because frankly, Dan would say that all the time. It was catchy, easy to remember, and had the word ‘fire’ in it. On the day of Pentecost, when the Holy Spirit fell, there were flames as of fire on each of their heads in the upper room.
*We want fire in our heads and yours, not just in our hearts.*
The link for the podcast being too hard for people to casually remember prompted us to register the domain name www.fireonyourhead.com and have it link to the podcast site. When doing so, Steve also registered www.fireonyourhead.org. The result, Fire Press site.
The format of the podcast and website has evolved with changing habits of listeners and social media, as well as the mobile web explosion. Eventually Dan moved back to the USA to go to school full time, and Steve moved to Peru, and now co-hosts and produces the podcast, occasionally with authors, international speakers, other missionaries, Fire Press blog authors, and other like-minded kingdom builders.
