Hope City

Bringing Hope to Inner City KC

May 2016

Imagine a prayer meeting where drug addicts get set free, the fatherless find a family, and the hungry are fed. Imagine a prayer meeting where anyone is accepted, and people from all walks of life can come to spend time with Jesus and find community. Located in one of Kansas City’s toughest neighborhoods, Hope City is involved in rescuing addicts, providing a safe place for rehabilitation, running a walk-in soup kitchen and food distribution project to the neighborhood, providing showers and laundry services for the homeless, and keeping a prayer room 24 hours a day, five days a week.

TheCall Azusa Now

Worshiping and Praying with 65,000

April 2016

The first few days we arrived in California we met with and ministered to several people. We were amazed at the connections God allowed us to make with both old and new friends.

TheCall Azusa- Praying for a Great Revival to Touch America

Monday, March 14, 2016

Theresa and I are so excited to be expecting our first baby in August! In addition, God is moving in the inner city as the poor are fed, addicts set free, and the spiritual atmosphere is changed through night and day prayer. Furthermore, many elderly are discovering their call as intercessors in nursing homes. We are so thankful!

Our nation is in crisis. The storm clouds have been gathering for some time now as America continues to shake its fist at God flaunting sexual immorality and continuing the systematic murder of thousands of unborn babies a day. We need a Great Awakening. In 1906, a great move of God began on Azusa Street in Los Angeles, California. Filled with the power of the Holy Spirit, William Seymour, son of former slaves, was a part of igniting a revival that is still impacting the Church to this day. In 1913, Seymour prophesied that in 100 years an even greater awakening was going to touch the earth.

Ripples in the Great Commission

Anna Club - Calling the Elderly to Pray

February 2016

Jonathan helps lead seniors in prayer accompanied by an acoustic guitar

We have begun the Anna Club with a modified version of harp and bowl prayer, combining worship and prayer, at one of the local nursing homes. The beginning means slow steps and figuring things out as we go, but each week the testimonies make our hearts soar.

As we tell residents that God has a purpose and destiny for them and they can change the nations where they are through prayer and worship, faces fill with tears and people respond with amazement that God would want to use them in this way. We never tire of getting to cast vision for the power of prayer and worship and the impact it has on the Great Commission.
