International House of Prayer gathers 30,000 Young Adults in Kansas City for Prayer and Missions Conference

KANSAS CITY, MO – Over 30,000 young adults will pour into downtown Kansas City for a four day Christian conference hosted by the International House of Prayer (IHOPKC) and taking place at the Kansas City Convention Center. The event will begin on Saturday December 28th and continue until the evening of Wednesday December 31st.

This annual convocation of Christians known as the “Onething Conference” has taken place in Kansas City since 2002 and has grown throughout the years. In 2011 Mayor Sly James welcomed the worshippers to Kansas City from the event’s stage noting the positive economic impact the conference had over the holiday season.

The event is known for its times of passionate worship and Christian teaching. In 2013 several notable guests are welcome to the event’s stage including Francis Chan, worship leaders Matt Redman and the Jesus Culture Band. It will also see teaching from IHOPKC’s Director, Mike Bickle in addition to other speakers and worship leaders from IHOPKC.

Mike Bickle is passionate about the impact that this event can have on the lives of many of the attendees. He commented “Jesus is not coming back to a prayerless, powerless, and passionless Church, but to a people walking in deep partnership with Him in worship and intercession for the release of the harvest and the establishing of justice in the nations. This is the message and heartbeat behind why we keep doing this event in downtown KC.”

The International House of Prayer (IHOPKC) is an evangelical missions organization based in Kansas City and Grandview, Missouri. Since September 19 1999 IHOPKC has established and maintained a 24/7 prayer room, a perpetual solemn assembly which combines worship in the form of music and singing with different types of prayer. This prayer room is then broadcast live over the internet to the nations of the earth.
