Getting Involved

How Do I Get Connected with IHOP Atlanta?

IHOP Atlanta is open to anyone who would like to attend any of our prayer meetings, Encounter Services, or School of Ministry classes throughout the week.

For those who are interested in serving at the Missions Base on worship teams, on prayer room teams, or in helps ministry departments, there are four different levels of involvement, which are defined below. Those who have made a commitment to become intercessory missionaries run the majority of the operations of the Missions Base.

Intercessory missionaries are those who have committed to prayer and fasting as the first work of ministry. Their primary function is to maintain a 24-hour canopy of prayer and worship that makes outreach more anointed and effective for the church in the city of Atlanta. Intercessory missionaries raise their own support through partner development. Intercessory missionaries are the modern day equivalent of Levites and gatekeepers in the Tabernacle of David.

What Are the Different Designations of Involvement?

Full Time Staff:

An intercessory missionary who has committed to serving the Lord by participating in 12+ two-hour prayer meetings and 16+ hours in helps ministry weekly, as well as fulfilling all other staff requirements.

Part Time Staff:

An intercessory missionary who has committed to serving the Lord by participating in 6+ two-hour prayer meetings and 8+ hours in helps ministry weekly, as well as fulfilling all other staff requirements.

IHOP Family:

An individual who has committed to serving the Lord through 10+ hours of weekly prayer room involvement and helps ministry. These 10+ hours are divided into 8+ hours in prayer room and 2+ hours in helps ministry.

IHOP family are required to attend a one-day Vision & Values course prior to receiving family status.

IHOP Community:

An individual not able to make a staff commitment but who sees IHOP Atlanta as his spiritual family. IHOP Community are required to attend weekly Encounter Services. They are also required to spend 2+ hours in the prayer room weekly and serve 2+ hours each month at the missions base.

5 Step Process of Involvement

Information Meeting:

The first step in getting involved at IHOP Atlanta is to attend an IHOP Information Meeting. This meeting is held on Sundays following the Encounter Services. The information meeting will enable the individual to find out more about the Missions Base and connect with IHOP Leadership. This meeting is the initial on-ramp for anyone who wishes to be involved with IHOP Atlanta.

Application:

All those who desire to become IHOP Staff must complete an application for an internship or training program. Anyone desiring to become IHOP Community or IHOP Family is required to complete an application for their respective designation. Applications may be picked up at the IHOP Information Meeting.

Pastoral Recommendation:

IHOP Staff and Family must be recommended to serve at the Missions Base by their pastor. A recommendation form is included in the application packet.

Training Program:

Before officially becoming full-time or part-time Staff, individuals are required to complete an introductory training program in order to acquaint them with the message and model of IHOP Atlanta. Each training program for staff is three months in duration. Available training programs include The Watch Internship, The Pursuit Internship, and Intro.

Those interested in becoming IHOP Family or Community are required to complete the Vision & Values class.

Each Staff member will be connected with a section leader for scheduling prayer room hours and with a department head for scheduling helps ministry involvement. All new staff will receive a Staff Handbook, an IHOP e-mail address, and an IHOP name badge during Orientation.

Healing Rooms

If you are wrestling with physical sickness, a chronic disease, a painful injury, or a heavy emotional burden, then there is good news for you. God's Word says that He is exceedingly kind and loves to heal (Psalm 103:1-5). During His earthly ministry, Jesus healed all who came to Him (Matthew 4:24).

If you desire to encounter God's love for you in practical way, we encourage you to sign up for a ministry time in our prophecy rooms.
