Our leadership and ministry teams are committed to serving the pastoral needs of our community. We desire to help build strong individuals and families who are growing in passion for Jesus and compassion for people. We offer focused ministry in the areas of restoration and recovery, lay counseling, and marriage and family.
Director, Restoration & Recovery
Tracey has worked in pastoral care for thirty years. In the last twenty-four years she has specialized in working with individuals who have suffered trauma and abuse and those dealing with life-controlling issues, such as eating disorders, gender confusion, and addictions. Her passion is to see captives set free and to help remove all that hinders love in the lives of those she serves.
Mike & Anne Rizzo
Director, Marriage & Family
Mike and Anne were born and raised in Buffalo, New York, committing their lives to Christ as young adults in 1975. They were married in 1981, and have served in pastoral ministry for over thirty years. In 2007 they relocated to Kansas City to be full-time intercessory missionaries at IHOPKC. They serve the pastoral needs of our community in premarital and marriage counseling, teaching, and personal mentoring.
Director, Lay Counseling
Kathryn traveled extensively and lived abroad while growing up. After giving her life to the Lord in college, being called into missions was a natural step. Following several years of serving with Youth With A Mission, Kathryn arrived in Kansas City in 2007 to be a part of the International House of Prayer, with a strong desire to further cultivate her relationship with Jesus in the context of night-and-day prayer. Motivated by God’s tenderness towards the brokenhearted, Kathryn pursued her master’s in counseling and has been providing individual counseling in the context of ministry and private practice for many years.
Directors, Overcoming Strongholds
Tim and Olga have been ministering together for nearly 30 years. Prior to coming to IHOPKC in February 2011, they served as youth and children’s pastors, as well as in other pastoral support ministries. Their hearts are to love God’s people and see them walk in the freedom that Jesus gives us.
The ministry of Overcoming Strongholds began in January 2012 as a small group in the Ericksons’ home. As God’s Spirit moved, the group expanded to minister to the increasing number of people seeking a greater revelation and experience of God’s love in their hearts and lives. Tim and Olga’s desire is that everything they do be based on God’s Word and led by His Spirit.
