About Concentration

The worship movement needs worship leaders who care less about their social media following and are more passionate about the power of God encountering the hearts and minds of those they lead in worship. This exclusive concentration is for those uniquely skilled in leading worship who can be taken to the next level by direct mentorship with our top worship leaders at IHOPKC as well as travel to hold worship nights at partner locations across America.

“Shortly after graduating from FSW, I jumped straight into leading worship in the Global Prayer Room at IHOPKC. The tools I obtained through my years in school were absolutely essential for this role! I am forever thankful to each of the faculty members that poured into me and imparted their understanding of prophetic musicianship, love for the Bible, and value for humility in leadership. I would not have chosen the path that I did had it not been for my years as an FSW student.“

Take a Gap Year to Pursue God.

Prioritize time to lay biblical and spiritual foundations that shape how you think, live, and relate with others. It is vital to take a season to set the groundwork for education, career, marriage, parenting, and all God has for you!
