About Intro to IHOPKC

The Holy Spirit is raising up a generation who love God with all their hearts, minister in the power of the Holy Spirit, and impact others. It is not enough to simply hear the call. The “yes” in the heart must be combined with real preparation for this great journey—through practical instruction, personal encounter, and spiritual impartation.

Stories We Love

  • Before Intro to IHOPKC, I loved the Lord, but was lacking a true vision and purpose for my life. I now see Jesus more clearly than ever, understand who I am to Him, and realize my role in this hour of history.

An Internship for all ages and families

Intro to IHOPKC is a full-time internship program that encourages individuals into a lifetime of prayer and friendship with Jesus. This program is designed as a time of consecration, encounter, and missions through prayer. Many have rebuilt their spiritual foundations in this program through a season of encounter and equipping, for a deeper life in prayer and confidence in the love of God. We welcome single and married applicants of all ages. While each internship has a distinctive age group, length, and schedule, they all share the same core training components:

Encountering 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. Come take your place and add your voice, as we reach for the heart of God together.

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. Come discover the power of a heart awakened in a fresh way to the person and presence of Jesus.

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

We love the thousands of testimonies of personal transformation and spiritual growth we have received over the years after spending a season of time here with us. Our team believes that an awakened, transformed heart is poised and more able to engage with what the Lord is doing across the earth in our generation. 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 like you, who see the first commandment as non-negotiable and share a common ache to lay hold of a heart that burns for Jesus. Together, you’ll give one another permission to run as deep into the heart of Jesus as grace will take us.

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

There are few things more profound and powerful than connecting with the Word of God with others, allowing those truths to go deep, and then singing and praying those truths together in His presence. 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.

Intro to IHOPKC Internship

“Our family came to IHOPKC in the fall of 2012. Our plan, at the time, was to complete the Intro to IHOPKC internship and return to the mission field, but God had other plans. During our time in Intro, God completely changed my perspective of who He was and what it meant to engage Him in prayer. I always viewed prayer as a duty rather than a place to touch the heart of God and be touched by God. It was in the prayer room that God changed me. Our main desire for interns is that they would encounter the heart of God in the place of intercession. That God would knit their hearts to His heart for prayer, worship, Israel, the nations, and His bride (the church). My main objective for the internship is to help strengthen and equip the saints for their eternal calling as a kingdom of priests, therefore, growing and establish night & day prayer.” –Adam

Frequently asked questions

  • Although Intro does serve as one of IHOPKC’s missionary staff training programs, it is also for those who don’t feel called to join our staff. Intro is for anyone who wants to experience a consecrated season with God in a 24/7 house of prayer environment with other fiery believers. Some join Intro to serve as “short-term” intercessory missionaries while others come to “get as much as they can from the Lord” and return to their local church or house of prayer communities. Each intern has very personal reasons why they come to do Intro, but one thing is for sure, God is drawing people from all nations and setting them on the wall of intercession!

  • The main training aspect of our internship is in the ministry of prayer. In addition, you will receive varying degrees of training in areas such as studying the Bible and hearing the voice of God.

  • Intro interns will have weekly reading assignments and group discussions based on the weekly reading, but there is no formal homework or exams.

  • For further information on tracks for children ages 1–12, please contact or (816) 763-0200 x.2525.
