Got your friend request. I am currently building a IHOP in our church and also I am part of a mission based on that is working towards 24/7 worship in Cranford, NJ.
I have been through about 4 training sessions and it has changed me from the ground up. As a person spiritually and as a musician. I don't think I could go back to doing things the old way wtih 5 or 6 songs, everyone stand, sing what we tell you to sing..that way. I believe IHOP is a global worship/prayer movement that will rock this earth.
