Upcoming Guest Speakers | Ministers of the Word of God


Periodically we are fortunate to have guest speakers and worship leaders come minister at our Encounter Service.  Over the years we have had the fortunate opportunity to build relationships with many leaders in various streams of the Body of Christ and it is always a blessing when they can come here and pour into us at The Prayer Room because of what they carry, the journey the Lord has lead them on and the lessons He has taught them.  Typically when a guest speaker comes to minister here they will speak on some subject related to prayer, passion for Jesus or the power of God.  We encourage you to come and experience these special nights with us whenever they occur.  See the schedule of upcoming guest speakers below.

Corey Russell currently serves on the senior leadership team of the International House of Prayer (IHOP-KC) as he has done for the last 11 years.  Corey directs the Forerunner Program at IHOPU, its purpose is to help facilitate and cultivate a lifestyle of prayer and fasting, and a love for the Word of God in the context of night-and-day prayer.  Our desire is to see every student discipled through regular interactions with leaders and fellow students as they reach for the fullness of God’s destiny in their lives. Students are taught, equipped, and mentored in healing, prophecy, and deliverance. It is our aim that upon completion of this program, every student will have a two-year history in engaged prayer, regular fasting, and the Word of God, and be further equipped to minister in the power of the Holy Spirit.  He has written several books and he travels nationally and internationally preaching on themes of Knowledge of God, Intercession, and the Forerunner Ministry.  Corey resides in Kansas City with his wife Dana and their three daughters Trinity, Mya and Hadassah.
