Forge Life-long Friendships at IHOPU

IHOPU students have an opportunity to not only embrace a season of directing their gaze on Jesus, but to do this alongside others in all aspects of community living. Eating together, residing together, exploring KC together, going to church together, our students forge life-long friendships within a diverse community of hearts that burn for Jesus both in and outside the classroom.

A Day in the Life of a Student

Online students do not miss out on the quality or content of our training programs while they engage with us from home. Studying from wherever you are located is no less rigorous than attending classes in Kansas City. Students will engage from home with each other roughly 12 hours a week in live virtual classes, scheduled virtual group discussions, and enjoy the flexibility of choosing their own virtual prayer room hours and study time. Students can expect to spend around 30–33 hours a week in our learning environments not including practice or homework.

Stories We Love

Life on the IHOPU Campus

Immerse yourself as a student in the community, full time! Enjoy campus life, make your home in our community housing, and dive into the recreational activities. In order to partake in the full on-campus expression of IHOPU, students enjoy living life together in IHOPU Community Housing, building community through recreational activities, and in the different gathering places on campus. The International House of Prayer Missions Base is made up of several properties. IHOPU Students spend most of their time at our Red Bridge Center (the location of the Global Prayer Room), the IHOPU Campus, and Forerunner Church. IHOPU Community Housing is just a short walking distance from the prayer room. IHOPU and Forerunner Church are located a few miles from one another in Grandview, MO.


Living with new friends makes community life better than ever! IHOPU Community Housing offers a dynamic living environment that will greatly enrich your time at IHOPU. This convenient housing option is just walking distance to IHOPKC’s Global Prayer Room.

IHOPU cares about the safety and wellbeing of all our students. Our campus management team oversees the IHOPU campus and is constantly revising and updating safety measures. As they walk the halls, they also pray for our students and staff.

In case of an emergency or crisis, IHOPU follows established security protocols to respond to any threat based on need. Protocols for a fire, tornado, or other emergency are posted in the halls. If we have an emergency at any level, IHOPKC Security is front line of defense. Grandview police is also able to arrive to the campus within 3 minutes in case of an emergency.
