Our Focus


As Fire & Fragrance our passion is the presence of Jesus. Intimacy with him is our highest goal and the center of everything we do! Our mission is to launch fiery eyed revivalists into the nations—close knit groups of friends—who are dedicated to falling more in love with Jesus and seeing the lost encounter his love. 

As a school we feel super excited to offer training from our heroes like Todd White, Banning Liebscher, Dominic Russo, Jonathan and Melissa Helser, and Ravi Zacharias’ team. We want to offer more than just classroom learning so we have focused on building holistic training that challenges every area of your life. Through serving campus in practical work duties, community outreach, extended times of prayer and worship and our various training tracks you will be challenged and grow into a dynamic leader who carries the Fire & Fragrance DNA.

At the completion of the classroom phase, students have the opportunity to ‘make God known’ in the outreach phase. The Gospel comes alive as students step out in faith to preach the good news, baptize new believers and heal the sick (Mark 16:15-18). Outreach is an exhilarating time of risk and adventure, as teams serve with local believers: transforming lives and impacting society with the love of Jesus Christ.

Simone Chaisson


I did DTS in 2013 and went to Uganda on my outreach. I staffed two schools went to India and Amsterdam. Then I did Heidi Baker’s Harvest School in Mozambique and the School of Biblical Studies in Kona. I love my Kona community and getting to do life with my best friends. Holding babies, laughing, eating sushi, hanging out at the beach, adventures and deep talks are my favorite.

Nico Suave


Hey, I’m Nico Jesse from Germany. I’m 23 years old and I did my DTS in the fall of 2014. My outreach was in the Himalayas and fell in love with loving on the lost. The next school I came back as staff and lead an outreach to my home nation to love on refugees. I have seen God move in amazing ways and I know there is so much more to come! I’m hungry for the presence of God and excited to pursue him with other fiery eyed revivalists. I have a passion for prayer and worship and want to see a praying and fasting generation being raised up. I want to see young men devoted to the Lord, walking in purity, fully knowing their identity in Christ. I enjoy playing and listening to music, as well as riding motorcycles when I have one.
