Who we are
How it all began
Twenty years ago, on a crisp day in the fall of 1999, a small, ragtag, band of worshipers andintercessors gave themselves to a ridiculous and beautiful dream.
Hour by hour, day after day, sometimes in an empty room, men and women, young and old, all races, beganto gather to a vision as simple in its essence as it was extraordinary in its scope: unceasing prayer withworship. “We will give everything!” they said, “Even every hour of life itself—day and night!—to declarethe supreme worth of Jesus to a jaded and unbelieving generation.”
It was crazy, it was lavish, it was foolish. And it was totally worth it. In the grace of God, thismission has spread across nations and continents, and will never, ever change until Jesus returns.

“I can look back over the last 20 years of following Jesus and it has been connected to the revelation being released from IHOPKC—my walk with Jesus, my perspective of eternity and understanding of what is important in life. You’ve dramatically changed my life. Thank you IHOPKC.”
Andy Byrd, The Send
“Thank you for 20 years of shifting history, filling the skies, sweeping the skies, so that the whole world could see Christ. I love you all. I love IHOPKC.
Lou Engle, Lou Engle Ministries
“You are such an amazing gift to the Body of Christ, such an amazing gift to the world. From Bethel, from me, from Redding, we just want to bless you guys and thank you for saying yes to Jesus. Happy anniversary, IHOPKC. And thank you so much, Mike and Diane Bickle and the team. You guys amaze us!”
Bill Johnson, Bethel Church
“Thank you, Mike and IHOPKC. [You’ve impacted] my personal life as well as our ministry at Jesus Culture. Whether it’s the Bridegroom revelation, a life given to night-and-day prayer, or defining success as ‘I am loved, therefore I’m a lover,’ there are not just teachings that came out of [IHOPKC] but lives and lifestyles of people who gave themselves fully to Jesus.”
Banning Liebscher, Jesus Culture
“I am so thankful for IHOPKC. I can’t believe it’s been 20 years of prayer, 20 years of plowing, 20 years of prophesying, ‘Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done.’ Happy 20th anniversary, Mike, Diane, and the entire IHOPKC team. Jon and I are so incredibly thankful for you and what you have pioneered.”
Lisa Bevere, Messenger International
“This is the hour of the Lord’s power being poured out, and . . . you guys have been a massive catalyst to inspire millions around the world to freely volunteer and to give themselves in extravagant devotion, into ministry to the Lord, and ministering to Him in the place of intercession as well. Incredible! Non-stop worship and prayer [for 20 years]!”
Rick Pino, Heart of David
