Second Semester

Second semester courses are designed to build on the Forerunner Curriculum taught during the first semester. Students will go deeper in some of the same content while continuing spiritual disciplines and lifestyle practices. The summer is broken up into two terms, each lasting five weeks. Term 1 is May 22–June 23. Term 2 is June 26–July 28.

There are two courses to take during each term. There is also a practicum for the entire ten-week semester, enabling students to engage in prayer, ministry, and community online. Additionally, students participate in six hours of corporate prayer each week (at their local church, house of prayer, webstream, etc.). Our goal is to engage the mind with biblical understanding that will produce transformation in the heart.

Currently, we only offer courses equivalent to the first year of classes at IHOPU, but we hope to offer a second-year program in the near future.

Second semester goals include:

1. Focus on the centrality of Christ in the plan of world redemption
2. Deeper analysis of various end-time belief systems as they relate to historical premillennialism with a victorious church
3. Understanding Christ’s intercession and our identity and function as a kingdom of priests
4. Establishing a lifestyle of prayer, prophetic, and ministry in the power of the Holy Spirit


Interactive course design

Our unique, interactive course design features a highly relational and personal learning experience. Each course instructor joins students online in a virtual classroom with two-way video interaction, allowing students from around the world to interact live with both the instructor and each other.


Flexible schedule

Courses consist of live interaction as well as high-quality, on-demand videos, notes, and reading assignments throughout the week. The technology we use for this course gives you the flexibility to access your course materials at the time and place that work best for your on-the-go lifestyle.


Strong student community

Students are able to interact directly with one another through online classrooms, virtual small group assignments, and by taking time to pray for each other as we form a strong spiritual community together.


Registration is now open for the second semester which runs as two terms during the summer.
