About Us

Our Dream

On Feb 12, 2006, a prayer meeting started at IHOP Atlanta that continues to this day. There are three key components to the International House of Prayer Atlanta Missions Base:

Prayer

The prayer room at IHOP Atlanta is the centerpiece of all that we do. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week worship and prayer ascends from our hearts to the throne of God.

icon

Missions

From the place of prayer, we reach out with the Gospel from our local neighborhoods all the way to the unreached nations of the earth.

icon

Community

Vibrant community is the foundation from which all prayer and outreach flows. We agree with the words of Paul that we are built together to be a dwelling place for God in the Spirit (Eph 2:22).

"the pleasure you're made for ultimately is found in intimacy with god."
