Encountering God | Mondays at 7:00PM
Encountering God Sessions incorporate Prophetic Worship, Biblical teaching, prayer, and ministry times to create an atmosphere tuned to the urgency of the hour in which we live. Each service is centered around a call for individuals to cultivate an intimacy with Jesus that inspires us to live deliberately. Our desire is that our worship together would be an invitation to partner with the Lord by contributing to the corporate prayer movement. Exercising our mandate of proclamation and impartation, each service focuses on providing a platform for changing the spiritual atmosphere of the Chicagoland area through the Spirit’s leading of both the individual and the corporate body of Christ. When teaching does occur, themes often include the believer’s inheritance in Christ, the power of the renewed mind, the importance of corporate worship and prayer in the earth, the call to purpose in the generation in which we live, and many more topics found in both the New and Old Testament.
FireWithin | Fridays at 7:30PM
FireWithin Sessions are typically our biggest corporate-altar session at ChiHOP. The FireWithin Sessions provide an atmosphere of freedom of worship and prophetic impartation through the incorporation of prophetic worship/intercession, prayer, and times of ministry. Through partnership with God expressed by proclamation and impartation, we focus each service on providing a place of encounter for both the individual and the corporate body of Christ. We desire that each service be a divine invitation to contribute to the corporate prayer movement throughout the city and thereby change the spiritual atmosphere of the city and surrounding area.
The Bridegroom Watch | 4th Friday of Every Month
The purpose of the Bridegroom Watch is to reclaim the night for the Lord. The night is particularly filled with all sorts of unfruitful deeds of darkness; our cities are filled with murder, sorcery, theft and immorality (Revelation 9:21). We want the night to belong to the Lord, and so we dedicate this time to standing in the Lord’s house as a beacon of hope in the night hour. As we choose to lay aside weariness and sleep, the Lord often encounters us in ways that only come through true hunger at the corporate altar, and are unique to the Bridegroom Watch sessions. It is our time of saying that we will not rest until righteousness shines forth like the dawn, and our ‘widow’s mite’ sown into having worship and prayer offered unceasingly through the night.
