Our Mission & Vision

The mission of Praise On Fire is to gather believers into the manifest presence of God through worshipping Him. As an outreach arm of Friends & Family Worship Center in Amarillo Texas, the vision is to bring to light what is the administration of the mystery of Christ in us the hope of glory. He inhabits our praise and glory and honor are in His presence. As we enthrone Him on our praise and step into the fire of His glory, our heartfelt desire is that we should be transformed by it, from glory to glory  and thus become the glorious church.


Praise On Fire was birthed by our founder, Pastor Jacquie Kirkwood, in 2000 as one of the first ever streaming Internet only radio stations broadcasting a praise & worship format from the world wide web. The broadcast stream was retired in December 2012 after 12 years of broadcasting. In this new season, Pastor Jacquie continues to use 21st Century technology to reach out and equip the body of Christ to worship Him by a revelation of His word.

In a ministry that spans almost three decades, Pastor Jacquie  Kirkwood brings experience to the body of Christ that has been touched by every area of ministry in the local church. A former “Miss Midwest City” and contestant in the “Miss Oklahoma Pageant”, she entered the ministry in 1983 and her powerful singing voice has taken her all over the world. As a Pastor, worship leader, teacher, psalmist, song writer, conference speaker and women’s minister, Jacquie is used of the Lord to minister with inspiration, compassion and humor, bringing a real word of vision for God’s manifest presence to the church. Over the years, she has four times served as the founding worship leader in fledgling churches and in 1990 pioneered her own church in Oklahoma City, which she pastored ten years. Currently, she pastors with her husband, Joe, in Amarillo, Texas.
