December 5–12, 2015: Encountering Jesus, our Bridegroom, King, and Judge
As we approach the end of the age, the Holy Spirit is emphasizing the revelation of Jesus Christ in the Word of God as Bridegroom, King, and Judge to the Body of Christ in every nation. This three-fold revelation of Jesus isn’t random, but a very strategic revelation to awaken a very specific response in the heart of God’s people, particularly in the generation who will see His return.
By understanding Jesus’ heart as a joyful Bridegroom who feels burning desire for His people, we are transformed by love into a mature Bride who is confident, even in our weakness. By understanding Jesus’ power as a sovereign King who received all authority, abilities, and resources, we are strengthened in faith as a house of prayer to contend in fervent intercession for His will to be done on earth as it is in heaven. By understanding Jesus’ plans as a righteous Judge who possesses great zeal to intervene in human history and vindicate the righteous, while confronting the rebellious to eternally remove everything that hinders love, we abound in hope as messengers with a forerunner spirit who, for the sake of love, prepare ourselves to prepare others to prevail through the unique dynamics and unprecedented events of the end times in great victory!
Come experience the transforming power of the Holy Spirit as we peer into the revelation of Jesus Christ as our heavenly Bridegroom, sovereign King, and righteous Judge!
January 2–9, 2016: Igniting Spirit-led Worship and Prayer
Prior to Jesus’ return, He is raising up a mature Bride in every nation, tribe, and tongue who will eternally function as a house of prayer, with worship and prophetic singing fueled by the beauty of God day and night, as a catalyst to world missions (Amos 9:11–12). Come join us to gain a better understanding of God’s plan for world redemption, along with our role both biblically and practically in worship, singing, and prayer unto the great harvest.
This program is held in partnership with faculty from IHOPU’s Forerunner Music Academy, and combines theological teaching with hands-on practical training for intercessors, musicians, and singers. In addition to the core curriculum, all participants may choose to study guitar, keyboard, drums, voice, or digital looping. The program is ideal for anyone from the very skilled, desiring to take their abilities to the next level, to those who are just learning to sing and play an instrument for the very first time to everyone in between!
February 6–13: Building the House of Prayer
One of the most neglected and elusive components of the Church throughout history is the foundation of prayer. Yet ironically, above all things, Jesus declared that prayer would be the primary characteristic of the house that He is building! So how will God transform the Church into a house of prayer and fill the earth with the incense of prayer in every place? He will do it through an unprecedented revelation of the beauty of God that makes prayer not only joyful, but sustainable.
This program combines theological teaching with hands-on training for building a corporate prayer ministry that can joyfully persevere in the days of small beginnings. Participants learn about the harp and bowl model of worship and intercession used at IHOPKC, making this program ideal for house of prayer leaders, worship teams, prayer groups, and anyone who wants to start or strengthen a prayer ministry or transform their workplace or home through the power of prayer.
March 12–19: Ministering in the Power of the Holy Spirit
God wants to make His home in us. In fact, the Bible reveals that Jesus longs to fill human beings with the fire of the Holy Spirit. Yet many Christians shy away from understanding the person and work of the Holy Spirit due to the endless controversies surrounding the gifts of the Spirit, for example, tongues, healing, prophecy, and other manifestations. Some avoid the controversies by asserting that they will focus solely on Jesus. However, it is simply a false notion that those who love Jesus can do so fully without giving any attention to what the Bible says about the Holy Spirit.
This program combines theological teaching with hands-on training to give biblical insight and personal confidence to minister in the power of the Holy Spirit. Our aim is that participants will grow in their partnership with the Holy Spirit in ministry and increase their ability to discern supernatural activity.
April 9–16: Growing in Prayer and the Prophetic
What was the role of prophecy in the New Testament Church, and what is its role in the Church today? Fortunately the Bible has much to say on this subject, revealing that every Christian can personally hear from the Lord and is encouraged to speak what’s on His heart to others in order for them to be strengthened, encouraged, and comforted in the grace of God.
This program combines theological teaching with hands-on training to introduce the lifestyle, pitfalls, and protocol of prophecy, as well as addressing the unique challenges and blessings associated with prophecy in the end times. Participants will explore further the various ways God speaks, discern how to speak to others, understand the value of restraint and humility in prophetic ministry and grow in the gift of prophecy, whether in prophetic singing, exhortation, preaching, and/or evangelism.
