The School of Intercessory Prayer is an invitation extended to you from the father.

Prayer and worship are two big foundations of our base. In the School of Intercessory Prayer (SOIP) you can expect to learn and participate in worship and intercession daily. Using Jesus as the perfect model, you will be taught and equipped to pray as Jesus prayed and how He taught His disciples to pray.  Come learn how to partner with what God is doing and effect change in some of the hardest places in the world. 

Lecture Phase

During the 3 month lecture phase you will have weekly teachings from some of the best in the Prayer Movement Worldwide and apply it daily in our Prayer House. You will learn how prayer can be fun, exciting and joy filled. You can also come expecting to learn the nature and character of God in relation to prayer, adoration, prophetic worship, spiritual warfare, prayer and fasting, Fear of the Lord and the life of an intercessor. 

Fulfill The Great Commission

After your lecture phase, you will be prepared to embark on the mission to “make disciples of all nations” and “preach the Gospel to all creation.” After SOIP, you will take part in a mandatory 2 week stateside outreach with our base or have the option of being a part of a 2 month outreach. These outreaches will help you explore the depths of your heart for the lost and for the countries and people that the Lord is calling you too. Wherever God may be calling you, this school will give you practical tools for leadership and making an impact for the Kingdom of God.

In YWAM we have a strong culture of depending upon the Lord for provision. We are convinced that if God gives the call, He will provide the means for us to move. We encourage you to pray about how to partner with others in raising support, knowing that it is ultimately up to the Lord to provide the way for the mission He is calling you to!
