What Others Are Saying

Dr. Brian Simmons – The Passion Translation Project

“God wants His House to be a House of Fire and Glory. The team at Firehouse have hearts ignited with fresh passion for Jesus. I love what they’re doing for God’s kingdom.  You MUST look into the classes they offer and the discipleship that awaits you at FIREHOUSE. This supernatural school of ministry will change your life! “

Ron & Donna Kutinsky – Hope International Ministries & Gulf Coast School of Supernatural Ministry

“The apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree” – a saying we’re all familiar with regarding offspring, but can I tell you that it also holds true for ministry schools! And that is exactly why Firehouse School of Supernatural Ministry is so powerful; Mandy Adendorff! As a “gate-keeper”, Mandy stewards the presence of the Holy Spirit so well because she herself is so intimately engaged with Him! We have had the privilege of having Mandy minister at our school (Gulf Coast School of Supernatural Ministry, Bradenton, FL) and we were all so impacted! We love that Firehouse School of Supernatural Ministry is not just amazing information, but also life-transforming activation! You can fill your head with information, but if you can’t translate it into life, it stays dormant. Most people we talk with have a sense that they should be in life beyond where they currently are – a sense that God has more for them. But most aren’t aware of what’s keeping them from it! Many others are aware, but not sure how to navigate beyond it. If that’s you, if you’re looking to unlock your destiny, then we say; “enroll now!” Discover the “you” God designed you to be through the empowering, Heaven engaging, destiny unlocking direction of our dear friend, Mandy Adendorff and her life-changing ministry at Firehouse School of Supernatural Ministry!”

Barbara Lachance – Pastor, Teacher, Author & Artist

“I have known Mandy Adendorff for many years.  Over that time, I have seen a maturity in her arise that few have.  Her passion to see God manifested through the school of supernatural ministry is only exceed by her faith in God.  It is Connecticut’s time!  God will manifest Himself through this school and those who attend. I am thrilled to endorse the Firehouse School of Supernatural Ministry, and I would encourage all who read this to attend.  Your life will be transformed”.

Dr. Dale A. Fife – Bestselling Author, Founder and President of Mountain Top Global Ministries

“Church is not about the building, the location, or the name on the front. It’s about the people! Firehouse is about people. They are passionate about loving God through exciting heartfelt worship, serving God in the community, on the streets, in the homes, and businesses, schools and government, and restoring humanity from  hopelessness to a victorious and prosperous living in Jesus Christ. If you’re looking for a cutting edge, no nonsense, life-changing, non-religious school of ministry, I highly recommend FHSSM. Come celebrate and serve the Lord along with others who are on fire for Jesus.”

Daryl and Lin Nicolet – Senior Leaders of Faith Ministries & Faith School of Supernatural Ministries
