START A HOUSE OF PRAYER
START AN AWAKENING HOUSE OF PRAYER
Four times in Scripture, we see the concept of the church as a “house of prayer” (Isaiah 56:7; Jeremiah 7:11; Matthew 21:13; and Mark 11:17). In Mark, Jesus said, “Is it not written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer for all the nations’?”
Awakening House of Prayer is a church—but more than a church. It’s a church that models itself in many ways after the early church—the Book of Acts church focused on fellowship, equipping, sending, awakening and societal transformation. Awakening House of Prayer in any city is a true ekklesia—a tactical operation, organization, and deployment.
HOW TO START AN AHOP
Awakening House of Prayer builds on the foundation on authentic relationships with people of like precious faith pressing in to see revival and awakening, with signs, wonders, and miracles. We pray together, we worship together, we prophesy together, we preach the gospel together—and we encounter God together. We value the presence of God above all and exalt the name of Jesus.
Our network of churches and prayer houses is relational rather than denominational. Rather than setting up a structure that constricts freedom of expression in your region, we have developed a model that allows you to embrace the unique needs of your city without compromising your unique voice as you advance our shared vision.
Before you take the name AHOP we want to get to know you, understand what the Lord is saying to you about the needs of your city. We’d like you to understand who we are and what we believe so we can agree that our relationship is rightly aligned. If we’re all in agreement, we’ll move forward in helping you launch or relaunch your church, apostolic center, revival hub—or whatever terminology you use.
