Empowering Believers to Understand, Live, and Share the Forerunner Message

There are many questions about the end times: What will happen? How long will it last? How can we prepare? Thankfully, the Bible provides many answers and important descriptions about the dynamics on earth before Jesus returns and the signs of His coming.

The Center for Biblical End-Time Studies is a new ministry initiative to equip believers with knowledge of these events, empowering them to share this knowledge with believers worldwide. Registration for participation in small groups and fellowship has closed for this semester. However, you can still listen to all of Mike’s teaching and notes on passages through auditing the course!

A Resource for the Body of Christ

Our aim is to gain clarity about the biblical view of the end times in order, together with other ministries in the nations, to empower believers to grow in understanding of these 150 chapters. In the years to come, we will host events and provide resources for this purpose. We are seeking to foster a conversation and an ongoing dialogue.

Forerunner Study Track

During the course of this three-year study track, Mike Bickle and others are systematically teaching through the 150 Bible chapters focused on the end times. This teaching takes place on Wednesday nights at 6pm at IHOPU and is streamed live for those who register. Childcare is provided for children ages 1–12 during the session. The study track is available for audit both locally and online. Register below.

Forerunner Research Group

As part of the study track, our Forerunner Research Group consists of about 20 groups of 12 people, which meet on Wednesday nights before teaching to discuss the chapter that was taught the previous week. Groups work together as a team in a semester-long practicum that includes research, writing papers on several of the 150 end-time chapters, and other projects. View syllabus »

The Forerunner Research Group

Empowering Believers to Understand and Live the Forerunner Message

To be a part of the Forerunner Research Group, participants must attend both the Forerunner Study Track and the Research Group at IHOPU on Wednesday nights. This includes participation in the dinner when in town and being faithful to help with the research in your group. Having a meal together will help foster a sense of community in these groups and is a key element in mentoring.
