Intro to IHOPKC

The Intro to IHOPKC internship is a full-time training program designed to prepare individuals for a lifetime of prayer and friendship with Jesus. This internship offers a time of consecration, a place of encounter, and a mission in prayer.

We welcome individuals and families of all ages, both domestic and international.

Intro aims to help you:

  • experience personal spiritual growth as you encounter Jesus through the Word of God and prayer
  • receive practical prayer ministry skills that will bless others
  • develop community and friendship with other believers who are hungry for more of God

Additionally, for families with children, our Children’s Equipping Center (CEC) imparts these same values and experiences to the smaller saints at an age-appropriate level through daily worship, fun activities, Bible lessons, and hands-on prayer room ministry opportunities.
