Cost and Payment Process

The cost is $259 per participant, and includes program costs and materials, but not housing, food, or travel expenses. If you apply and are accepted to an IHOPKC internship within six months of completing Immerse, your entire registration will be applied toward the cost of tuition in an internship.

Payment in full is due with registration. If you register online, you will need to pay online also. If you would like to pay when you arrive, please wait to register until you arrive.

Please note that if you register when you arrive, the cost will be $279 per participant.


Anyone above age 18, at any stage of life, is welcome. Teens (ages 13–17) may also attend, but must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Registration fees for IHOPKC events are not refundable. Please contact immerse@ihopkc.org or (816) 763-0200 if you have questions.

Registration is at Forerunner Church Friday night between 5:30pm-6:30pm at the corporate service.

Teens and Children

Teens ages 13–17 are welcome to participate in Immerse, but they must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Cost for teens, like adults, is $259.

Children ages 1–12 may participate in our Children’s Equipping Center (CEC) tracks throughout the week from 9am to 12pm Monday through Friday. Children’s tracks are held in a different building from the adult sessions; transportation of children to and from CEC sessions is the responsibility of parents and/or guardians. The cost of CEC tracks for Immerse is $100. You may register your child(ren) with CEC when you register yourself. Children must be registered by the Saturday before the start date of the Immerse program.

Please note: CEC tracks are not available for the Immerse program in June, August, November, or December.

Accommodation, Meals, and Transportation

Participants are responsible for their own housing, meals, and transportation. For information on airport transportation and discounted hotel options, please see IHOPKC Visitor Information.

Participants without a vehicle need to arrange their own transportation to and from our campus locations.

Shuttle service is provided only to/from the Red Bridge Center (RBC) and Forerunner Church during weekend services.Please note that children under the age of five are not permitted to ride our shuttles. 

Internet Access

Access to the Internet is not necessary once you arrive, but it is helpful. Wireless Internet is available on most IHOPKC properties, but it is often slow.

International Participants

Immerse is a program of the International House of Prayer, not an IHOPU school or internship. This means international participants do not require a student visa. If your country participates in the Visa Waiver Program with the US, you do not need a visa to attend Immerse. If your country is not part of the Visa Waiver Program, you will need to apply for a visa. We suggest that you do not purchase flights, book accommodation, or request a visa until you have received confirmation of registration.
