It's all about one thing at the International House of Prayer's (IHOP) Young Adult Conference and that's Jesus.
Dubbed one thing, the annual worship and teaching conference is drawing 25,000 young adults to Kansas City Convention Center this Dec. 28-31.
"There are moments in history when a door for great change is blown wide open," says Mike Bickle, conference founder and director of IHOP-KC. "We are in the early days of seeing sweeping changes that will confront the status quo in the Church and in society. It is in these strategic moments that the disciples of Jesus will become the hinge of history, that pivotal point that determines which way the door will swing."
One thing aims to help train and equip a generation to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to love God and people with all their hearts. Young people are coming from across America and over 50 countries, including South Korea, China, New Zealand, and many European and South American nations.
"Right now, we stand at a critical juncture in history," Bickle says. "All across the earth, the Holy Spirit is visiting His people with power as He raises up a generation consumed with God's zeal. Zeal to see the fame of Jesus' name go forth in the earth. Zeal to see revival in the Church. Zeal to see justice established. Zeal to see a great harvest of souls."
IHOP's KC is an evangelical missions organization based on 24/7 prayer with worship that is engaged in evangelism, healing the sick, inner city outreach, multiple justice initiatives, planting houses of prayer, and training missionaries. IHOPâ€"KC has continued in nonstop prayer led by worship teams since September 19, 1999, and is committed to combining 24/7 prayers for justice with 24/7 works of justice. IHOPâ€"KC offers full-time training in Bible, music, and media schools.
Are we doing enough to raise up the next generation of youth? What more should we do?
