The Word on Fire Institute Is Now Open!

October 1, 2018


Bishop Barron has spoken about his dream of evolving Word on Fire from a ministry into a movement.

The first step of that process is to form a community of evangelists who share the same mission and desire to proclaim Christ using beauty, goodness, and truth. The critical task of training modern evangelists to effectively proclaim Christ to the culture is the primary motive behind the establishment of the new Word on Fire Institute (WOFI).

We need a vast, well-formed army of evangelists, says director of the Word on Fire Institute, Jared Zimmerer, who encourage one another, strive after a radical relationship with Christ through the sacraments, and leave their doorstep every single day ready to proclaim Christ in the culture. This combination of community and action is essential to the future Word on Fire Movement. The new WOF Institute is the primary starting place for this to be realized.

We want to formally invite you to join the Word on Fire Institute, which is now open!

As a member of the Word on Fire Institute, you will:

– Connect with a dynamic community of like-minded disciples from all over the world.

– Be formed spiritually according to the Word on Fire ethos.

– Be trained to engage the nones in the style and through the methods of Bishop Barron.

– Take high-level courses in evangelization from some of the best experts in the world.

– Engage in live, face-to-face interaction with WOF staff and fellows.

– Have the opportunity to become a leader in the future WOF Movement.

All of the courses and community discussion will be accessible online. When you sign up to become a member of the WOFI, you will create a personal profile through which you will view the course offerings and interact with the community inside the Institute. You will get a customized and personalized learning dashboard through which you can keep track of your course progress, discussions, Institute announcements, and upcoming events. No tech skills are necessary, and you can access the WOFI easily on any device. 

On top of all this, as a member of the WOFI you will also receive free access to Word on Fire Digital! In other words you get free, unlimited access to ALL of Bishop Barron’s films, public talks, future recordings, and study materials.
