About This Podcast
Do you want to experience more of God’s presence? How often do you feel stuck, stressed, empty, frustrated, unmotivated, alone but sense you have a greater purpose? What’s the passion that ignites your soul and makes your life vibrant?
God’s greatest gift to you is His presence. God is love. God is light. God is a consuming fire. The Bonfire is a place for gathering, celebrating, and refining. The Bonfire is a place for community. The Bonfire is a place to experience Jesus and learn to abide with Him. God will meet you right where you are. He brings embers together and builds a bonfire.
Jesse Bradley is a pastor, evangelist, author, and former professional soccer player. He read the Bible for the first time and came to know Jesus through a religion class at Dartmouth College, and a has a master’s degree in theology from Dallas Theological Seminary. He serves as the lead pastor at Grace Community Church (graceinauburn.com), a multigenerational and multiethnic church family in the greater Seattle area. He leads people to Jesus through digital outreach, and a recent gospel campaign resulted in over 480.000 people deciding to follow the Lord for the first time. Jesse has appeared on many television networks and a range of shows from Good Morning America to NBC News (JesseBradley.org).
Jesse’s soccer career ended with a tragic illness in Africa as he was fighting for his life for a year, and it took ten years to fully recover. Through this restoration story, God birthed a new passion and purpose in Jesse’s heart. He discovered a vibrant and indestructible hope that is available to everyone. He encourages and empowers people to abide with Jesus and cultivate transformative habits. Jesse and Laurie have four active teenagers and a patient dog named Bella.
