    IHOP University is a 4-year program, whose goal is to produce graduates that can lead in the very expression of God’s calling for their lives. It fosters ministry training within its Bible School, Worship School and Media School in order to prepare the works of the hands of students to become future ministry leaders for their callings to serve in Christ Jesus, for such a time is this.

    The mission of IHOP University is simple: To train leaders to partner in the Great Commission by advancing 24/7 prayer, worship and prayer and to proclaim the beauty of Jesus and His glorious return.

    Throughout the three components of IHOP University, Sliker places great emphasis on the students having a deep intimacy and prayer life with Jesus Christ so that they are prepared to serve in their callings after graduation.

    “The kind of student who comes here is passionate about Jesus,” Sliker said. “There’s a good spectrum for the person, who wants to grow in music, ministry and missions. A lot of our graduates go onto full-time ministry. A number of them have gone onto missions work.

    The classes offered by IHOP University are taught in a variety of languages, including English, Chinese, Portuguese and Russian. Student spend days in the classroom and about six hours of outreach locally.
