HOPE CITY NIGHT WATCH
“Behold, bless the Lord, All you servants of the Lord, Who by night stand in the house of the Lord! Lift up your hands in the sanctuary, And bless the Lord. The Lord who made heaven and earth. Bless you from Zion!” Psalm 134
The Hope City Night Watch (HCNW) trains people to work in missions in the Inner City. Participants will help maintain the prayer room room from 10pm-6am. Alongside the core value of intimacy with Jesus, HCNW also focuses on a lifestyle of prayer, character development, and promoting unity in the Body of Christ. Participants grow in the knowledge and love of God through Bible study and prayer; they also develop the life skills they need to minister in an inner city context by leading in the Hope City prayer room, serving in the soup kitchen, participating in the food distribution project, and evangelism outreaches. We do this along with ministering to and living among recovering gang members, drug addicts, and the homeless.
Hands-on training is complemented by classroom instruction on biblical themes such as intimacy with Jesus, ministry in the power of the Holy Spirit, justice, and the emotions of God as expressed through the bridal paradigm. Participants hear messages from Hope City leaders during the week and from Mike Bickle and others at the International House of Prayer’s main weekend services. Whether studying the Bible, learning the harp and bowl model of worship and prayer, or spending time with the homeless, ministry at Hope City is done while maintaining the heart commitment to fall deeper in love with Jesus.
Age: 18-40, singles, with a strict no-dating policy among fellow participants while in the program.
