Nations Ablaze began in 2007 under Jerry and Barbara Manderfield as the state-side umbrella for youth work already underway in Colombia. After 15 years working with youth in Colombia, the Manderfield’s sought to expand their vision. Youth Solutions (YS) began in 2005 as an unofficial movement to equip and create unity among pastors and youth leaders nation-wide. By 2008, it had evolved into an NGO and falls under Nations Ablaze. Since its inception, YS has held six annual conferences and expanded internationally into three more nations. Christ for the Nations Institute (CFNI) Colombia, a ministry training institute, launched in 2009 to equip young people to impact Colombia and the nations with the Gospel. Currently, the institute has outgrown its facilities and has expanded to a two-year program.
