Bart Schuchts, founder of Church on Fire, has more than 28 years of ministry experience and has been associated with the John Paul II Healing Center since its inception. Raised in a Catholic home, he drifted away from the Church during high school and college. His journey took him across much of the Body of Christ, fueling his passion for the intimate and powerful presence of God. Bart has been instrumental in the Center’s growth. He has a deep passion to see people encounter the Father’s love. Bart has been married for over 20 years and has four children.
