Equipping Pastors, Leaders, and Parents

The International House of Prayer’s Children’s Ministry Conference equips and empowers pastors, parents, and leaders to pursue the knowledge of God, passion for Jesus, and enjoyable prayer and to teach children to do the same.

Session topics include changing traditional views of children’s ministry and learning methods for teaching children to walk out kingdom truths. We share resources that have unlocked many children’s hearts for intimacy with God through prayer, praise, power, and the prophetic.
