What makes our school unique

The times are urgent, our need is great, and the opportunities are endless. We believe it is time to bring Biblical training together with corporate prayer, fasting, worship, healing, and prophecy. In the context of 24/7 worship-based prayer, our vision is to train leaders, singers, musicians, intercessors, church planters, teachers, and those called to the workplace.

Hands-on Ministry Training

Dynamic, impact-oriented, real-life ministry.

  • Prophesy in worship. Shake nations with a song.
  • Be the heart of Jesus to the poor. Carry a message in Spirit and truth.
  • Move in the power of the Holy Spirit.

A Powerful Prayer Life

Burn together with others in unceasing worship and prayer.

  • Night-and-day prayer is the centerpiece of our training.
  • Grow in prayer with others and in the Secret Place.
  • Contend for revival, speedy justice, missions, and the global harvest.

Encounter Jesus in His Word

Life changing moments with the scriptures in the classroom.

  • In-depth theological training that shifts paradigms.
  • World-class educators who are alive in the love of Jesus.
  • Experience a mind ablaze with the fire of His beauty.

stories we love

  • The most impacting thing for me at IHOPU was seeing God move in our midst in healing and the prophetic—in ways I had never seen before.

Dynamic & Transformational

You won’t be the same. Whether you come for one year or graduate in four, we pray night and day for our students to be marked by the love of Jesus. The greatest need in this hour is for prophetic messengers, prophetic singers, and prophetic musicians who have clarity and insight into the cultural moment. Become a powerful answer for uncertain times.
