September 12–19, 2015: Cultivating the prophetic ministry
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 hear from God and is encouraged to speak prophetically to others.
This program combines theological teaching and practical training to address the pitfalls and protocol of prophecy, prophecy as a lifestyle, and the unique challenges and blessings associated with prophecy in the end times. This program will also lay a biblical foundation for discovering how God speaks to you, discerning when and how to speak to others, understanding dreams, visions and interpretation, the value of restraint and humility in prophetic ministry (1 Cor. 12:14), and growing in the gift of prophecy, whether in prophetic singing, exhortation, preaching, and/or evangelism.
Participants will learn what it means to “desire earnestly to prophesy” (1 Cor. 14:39), and how to honor this gift of the Holy Spirit by pursuing it with fervor, while administering it with excellence in the context of individuals, campus ministries, or a local church family.
October 17–24, 2015: Building the house of prayer
One of the greatest tragedies in human history is the lack of prayer in the Body of Christ. Yet, ironically, Jesus declared that prayer would be a primary characteristic of His house. So how will God transform the Church into a house of prayer and fill the earth with prayer in every place (Mal. 1:11)? Through a revelation of the beauty of God, which makes prayer not only joyful but sustainable.
This program focused on Jesus’ desire for His Church to be “a house of prayer for all nations” (Mk. 11:17) combines theological insight with practical training for building a prayer ministry that joyfully perseveres in the days of small begininngs. 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 see their workplace or home transformed through the power of prayer.
November 7–14, 2015: Discover your identity in Christ
Do you know who you are according to how God sees you? Although your true identity is constantly being assaulted by the lies of the enemy and the projection of the world, God’s desire is that every believer in the Body of Christ know and experience who we were created to be based on His design. It is only in realizing our authentic identity that we can attain the fullness of God in our lives, families, and ministries.
Come experience the transforming power of the Holy Spirit, as we are renewed and empowered by the revelation of how God sees us and His glorious plan for us.
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!
