Blacksburg Ablaze

BLACKSBURG, VA

ABOUT US

OUR LEADERSHIP

Blacksburg Ablaze was formed in 2011 on campus at Virginia Tech with the mission of helping people be all that God has designed them to be rather than just survive college and young adult life.

 

We have a passion and a calling for raising up leaders within the church; encouraging people to find their God-given purpose and rolling up their sleeves to serve the body of Christ. Ablaze is a place that aims to feel more like a family than an organization. We eat meals together, we meet regularly, and we value our close, casual atmosphere.

 

We want to be a place where people can discover a passion for serving God and growing deeper in their genuine relationship with Him.

WHERE TO FIND US

Ablaze is a training church, which means we are blessed to hear often on Sundays from our pastors-in-training. We meet at 10:30 a.m. Sundays in War Memorial Chapel on the Drillfield, when classes are in session.
You can also catch us remotely and watch previous sermons on our YouTube page!
