“IHOPU teaches a lot about ministry: how to love people, how to speak, and how to minister to people. There’s active prayer (24/7) and ministry opportunities.”
Leadership is about partnering with Jesus—learning from and leaning on Him.
I’m saying it doesn’t matter [what it looks like]; I just need to be someone who prays. If it has to be, send me in the secret place, in the place of prayer to contend for my country.
What if God interrupted our plans? What if the Holy Spirit took over? What if we lavished our affection and attention on Him above all other concerns?
I believe if you want to meet Jesus in the Scriptures, this is the right school for you.
The Lord can do so much through prophetic words: activate gifts, confirm direction, and comfort and strengthen His people.

I got more confident in His voice, and then I got more confident in my prayers. I also learned to trust God concerning my daily needs.
The church is not immune to the potential for abuse or neglect of children.
He is in the business of untying donkeys—of breaking people free from that which holds you back.
He has a beautiful journey for you, and being a worshipper is a key part of it.
I pray that, as children’s ministry leaders, we not view our leaders as always opposed to us.
The rejection of the Christian narrative has allowed for a secular narrative to take the dominant place in our culture and society.
Woven into the fabric of who we were created to be, the infinite God created an infinite longing within us to be fascinated.
It really is such a significant part of the training—not just doing prayer meetings, but coming into a pre-existing pre-established culture of prayer.
It’s not that God reveals new things about His character or person, so much as it is that our eyes are opened to see Him for who He is, causing our hearts to sing to Him about Him.
