Set Apart a Time to Encounter God

Interns at the IHOPKC spend a focused season of their lives worshiping Jesus, studying the Word, engaging in works of justice, ministering in the power of the Holy Spirit, and contending for the full release of the Lord’s kingdom purposes. When the people of God know they were created to love Him and be loved by Him, their hearts soar with confidence in His abundant grace.

What will I learn?

Your Season in Kansas City

While each internship has a distinctive age range and schedule, they all share the same central training components: corporate prayer meetings, classroom instruction, practical ministry experience  and relationship-building. Biblical teaching in all of the internships focuses on intimacy with Jesus, ministry in the power of the Holy Spirit, the Return of Jesus and cultivating a lifestyle of prayer. 

What happens after?

Filled Up to Be Poured Out

Upon successful completion of an internship (or two three-month tracks), some will stay and apply to join our staff. Many will continue training in our ministry, music, and media schools at IHOPU. Still others will return home strengthened in their spiritual life to continue with further study, pursue a career in the marketplace, or be a full-time mom, and more.

 

Encounter Jesus in Prayer and Worship

Come experience something historic: over twenty years of unceasing prayer and worship, contending for a breakthrough and more of the presence of God in our hearts, our city, and nation.

Experience Powerful Teaching and Messaging

From intimacy with Jesus to His beauty and majesty, to the end-time drama of His glorious return, our messaging is designed to fuel prayer and passionate pursuit.

Express the Love of Jesus and the Power of His Spirit

Come spend a season growing in the gifts and the work of the Holy Spirit in dynamic ministry and service as we experience the dynamic relationship between prayer and mission together.

Engage in Preparation of the Heart for Jesus' Unfolding Plans

Our team believes that an awakened, transformed heart is poised and more able to engage with what the Lord is doing across the earth. We take your season here seriously because we take the future seriously.

Engage in Passionate Pursuit with Passionate People

Come discover potential lifelong friendships with like-minded believers who see the first commandment as non-negotiable and share a common ache to lay hold of a heart that burns for Jesus.

Enjoy a Season to "Reset" Your Heart and Rediscover Jesus

Consider joining our family for a season to discover what’s possible when we give an extended season to prayer, scripture, and the power of the Holy Spirit to work in our life and our hearts.
