Discover the Theology of the Body

The Theology of the Body is much more than the do’s and don’ts of sex. The Theology of the Body seeks to answer two fundamentals questions; What does it mean to be human, and how must I live in order to experience authentic happiness?

Sexual Freedom

We all desire to experience an authentic freedom with our sexuality, a freedom from lust in order to be free to love. To be set free from sin, so we can be free to act with virtue. The virtue of chastity is the virtue that sets us free to love and be loved!

Hungry for Love

We are all hungry for love! Simon and Madeleine witness to this hunger for love through their powerful and engaging presentations and course! Discover how the deepest desires for love you experience are a roadmap to finding your ultimate happiness!

The Fire Up X-Factor


Pope Francis once said, “The best way to evangelise young people, is through young people.” Fire Up Ministries are a young married couple who understand the challenges facing you people today!


We create online content to help reach and educate young people. By using video and social media resources, we engage them from where they are at.


We are not afraid to be vulnerable and share from our personal sexual struggles and experience. We all want speakers who are authentic and real, and this is what we hope to bring to every event we present at.

Julian Porteous, DD
Archbishop of Hobart

“Relationships, sexuality and marriage are hot topics in our society… It is young people sharing with their own generation that is most effective. I was delighted to have Simon and Madeleine speak to the young people in Hobart.”

Richard Umbers DD VG
Auxiliary Bishop of Sydney

I am pleased to give my endorsement to Fire Up Ministries… There is real need for clear markers on how to foster healthy personal relations. Fire Up Ministries is a great aid towards helping people in their apprenticeship of living the full demands of their faith. 

Charbel Raish
Founding Director of Parousia Media

Simon Carrington is leading the way in the area of chastity and theology of the body in Australia. I recently heard his talk “Parenting Purity to Teens” and it was one of the best talks I have ever heard! Fire Up Ministries will have a huge impact on the future of the church in Australia and our society as a whole. As the founder of Parouisa Media and partner of Fire Up Ministries I can wholeheartedly endorse Simon as a speaker, he is changing lives!
