About Us

Our History

Michael and Anna are the visionary architects for Burning Ones. In 2012 while on a long fast the Holy Spirit spoke to Michael’s heart and said these words, “Continue to be a Burning One and I will raise up Burning Ones all around the world.” Burning Ones was not established in an attempt to build a great organization. Burning Ones was the natural outflow of a heart posture and life that Michael and Anna have committed the rest of their days to living.

It was a few years later, while again on a long fast and in prayer, the Holy Spirit spoke again. This time there was a clear invitation into the nations of the earth. The Holy Spirit began to give beautiful clear instructions through a vision of five rivers flowing out of the life of Michael and Anna, Burning Ones, and what they were to give the rest of their lives to.

It is through this incredible history of walking with God in the place of fasting and prayer that all of our life efforts have found their definition. It is a great joy, and the wildest adventure of life, to follow Jesus!

Our Mission & Vision

We are called to declare this man, Jesus Christ, the hope of all nations!


It is Jesus’ heart for the lost that compels us into the nations of the earth to preach the Gospel; Preaching Jesus is our Mission


We are jealous to see a mature expression of the body in our generation.

We have been commissioned for the training of the saints in the work of the ministry, to build up the body of Christ, until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of God’s Son, growing into a mature man with a stature measured by Christ’s fulness. (Ephesians 4:12-13)

It is not a question of either/or for us, it is both! Missions AND Maturity.

They asked each other, “Were not our hearts burning within us while he talked with us on the road and opened the Scriptures to us?”

Luke 24:32

“I baptize you with water for repentance. But after me comes one who is more powerful than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.

Matt 3:11

But if I say, “I will not mention his word or speak anymore in his name,” His word is in my heart like a fire, a fire shut up in my bones. I am weary of holding it in; indeed, I cannot.

Jer 20:9
