Why Onething Is Not Just for Young Adults

9/15/16 Training and Events

It’s geared toward young adults—and thousands upon thousands will attend—but rest assured, all ages are welcome at Onething 2016!

Children, families, teenagers, and adults of any age will encounter God’s presence and power at our annual Onething conference, December 28–31, at the Kansas City Convention Center.

The doors are open for as many people as possible to experience four days of anointed worship, inspired teaching, and ministry in the Holy Spirit’s power—including prophecy, healing, and altar ministry times.

Whole families make the trek annually, working professionals take time away from their jobs, and believers and church leaders both young and old come to hear what the Lord is saying. In an environment of revelation and encounter, our voices are strengthened to proclaim Jesus and His return.

All ages can participate in God’s work.

For children 5-12, there are special ministry tracks at Onething run by the Children’s Equipping Center. The tracks meet during the main ministry times, and convey the same messages that the adults are receiving, but at an age-appropriate level. The children’s track, which requires a separate registration, includes group activities and games, worship, teaching, and ministry and prayer times, all in a secure and safe environment.

Parents are also welcome to bring their children into the main conference hall. There is no registration required for children 10 years old and under—unless they are attending the children’s track—and the conference features special areas for families with strollers and a nursing mothers’ room, so they can still partake in the sessions.

The conference also welcomes pastors and ministers from across the US, and around the world, with translation offered (for an additional fee) in languages including Korean, Spanish, Chinese, Portuguese, and Russian. Group rates are available for churches, youth groups, and groups of 10 or more that register together.

Onething is a time of refreshing and strengthening for the entire body.

Inspiring messages from Bill Johnson, Todd White, Allen Hood, Mike Bickle, and others, and worship led by Matt Maher, Audrey Assad, Jonathan David and Melissa Helser, and more will stir believers regardless of their age, background, or season in their Christian walk.

Onething is also a great time to learn more about IHOPKC’s ministry and programs.

At the conference’s Hub area (between the main hall and bookstore), you can interact with representatives of our internships (which welcome all ages); children, youth, and college campus ministries; Immerse, an eight-day mini-internship; and IHOPU, the International House of Prayer University, which features ministry, music, and media schools, as well as online classes.

Additionally, IHOPKC’s prayer room moves to the conference facility during Onething, offering attendees the chance to pray and worship anytime they wish between 6 a.m. and midnight; prayer continues from midnight to 6am at IHOPKC’s All Nations Prayer Room in Grandview, MO, in the IHOPU building.

We sincerely hope, and believe, that you’ll feel welcome at Onething 2016–we invite you to encounter Jesus’ presence and become His voice with us in Kansas City this December.
