As part of the International House of Prayer, our Bible school is built around the centrality of the Word and 24/7 prayer with worship, equipping students in the Word and the power of the Spirit for the bold proclamation of the Lord Jesus and His kingdom. Training at IHOPU forms not only minds but also lifestyle and character, to sustain students for a life of obedience, humility, and anointed service in the kingdom. Our curriculum combines in-depth biblical training with discipleship, practical service, outreach, and works of compassion. IHOPU is for students who long to encounter Jesus. With schools of ministry, music, media, and missions, our one- to four-year programs prepare students to serve the Great Commission and obey Jesus’ commandments to love God and people.
