Welcome to the campus of IHOPU

From the moment the doors to our new campus first opened in the fall of 2010, every lecture room, lab, and practice space has been thoughtfully designed with you in mind.

We have spent over a decade expanding and upgrading our learning environments to create an educational experience unlike anything you’ve seen before. Composed of three main sites and three distinct programs, our campus goes beyond the classroom to cultivate authentic life transformation. Whether you join us here in Kansas City or online from your hometown, you will receive the same quality of biblical training through classroom interaction and pre-recorded lecture videos.

Found at the core of our campus is the Global Classroom, an interactive learning experience designed to facilitate discussion between on-campus students and online students at the same time.

Through cutting-edge technology and trained faculty, this one-of-a-kind educational model gives you the ability to step into a conversation with a global family of believers. As you study the book of Psalms, the life of Jesus, and the theology of Israel, you’ll get to hear perspectives from different parts of the world and grow in understanding of the Word together.

The Global Prayer Room

The prayer room is more than just another section of our campus. It is the very heartbeat of our school. The best thing we can offer you isn’t our biblical training, experienced faculty, or vibrant student life experience— it’s a place to fall deeper in love with Jesus. As an IHOPU student, your weekly schedule includes joining us in the Global Prayer Room to participate in a prayer meeting that has continued night and day since 1999. Our campus also houses the All Nations Prayer Room where you can engage with interactive prayer meetings in multiple languages. These prayer meetings are a central element of your learning experience where you get to talk to God about the things you’re studying, strengthen friendships as you engage in intercession together, and allow Jesus to encounter you with His love and beauty. This goes beyond growing in knowledge; it’s real transformation.

Forerunner Church

The vibrant community of IHOPU is strengthened even further through connection with our local church family. Students attend weekly services at Forerunner Church, allowing them to serve with and learn from multiple generations in the larger Body of Christ. This aspect of our campus life offers our students personal outward expressions of ministry and relationships with lasting impact, helping them to grow both individually and corporately. From serving in youth ministry to receiving pastoral support, every aspect of Forerunner Church empowers our students to be unified with Christ and with one another.

Immersive Online Experience

Our goal is to make our global school just that: global. While we love hosting our students locally, we recognize that many future messengers feel the call but cannot make the journey. As an IHOPU student, every lecture, lab, student event, and prayer meeting extends into our online experience. Engage with the prayer room livestream as part of an online ministry team, then take what you’re learning into prayer meetings back home. Gain a comprehensive view of the Body of Christ as you join our Forerunner Church services and serve your local church. Grab a bowl and join one of our student government soup nights, as you connect with online and on-campus students on our student center TVs. Every step of the expansive IHOPU journey is available right where you’re at, down to your last ones as you virtually walk the stage at graduation.

Our City

Our City

While IHOPU is the main part of your experience as an on-campus student, we believe that the friendships formed in the classroom can be strengthened outside of it. Visit our city page to learn more about the many facets of the “City of Fountains” you can expect as an on-campus student.
