Who We Are
Our story began its unfolding when Jon came to Kansas City in 2004 to take part in IHOPKC’s nightwatch internship, Fire in the Night. Formerly a worship director at a small church in rural Pennsylvania, the idea of IHOPKC’s round the clock music and worship was fascinating to him. His interest in music, and a few other significant leadings, prompted him to join IHOPKC staff after the completion of the internship.
Two years later in 2006, Kinsey moved from Texas where she had been working as a Kindergarten teacher. Like Jon had done two years prior, she also joined in with the Fire in the Night internship.
Once her six-month internship ended, Kinsey ended up on Jon’s worship team—no, not as a singer or a musician. She was the power point girl. And let’s just take a moment to say that those behind-the-scenes jobs really count.
We met. We caught each other’s eye. We dated. We broke up (for a year!). We dated again. We got engaged, and we were married in May 2010. And we are so very in love.
We are followers of Jesus
We have pledged our lives and our love to our beloved Lord, and who we are is wrapped up in this simple, profound reality—God has lavished great love upon us, and we love Him back.
We are ministers in the house of prayer
Our hearts have been captured by a vision to throw our lives into prayer and worship. Jesus is worthy of the world’s adoration and love, and we long for the day when He will fully receive the praise He is due.
We are advocates for the fatherless
The Lord has brought us into the burden of His heart for the fatherless, and we know part of our life’s assignment is to pour ourselves out for these children. We believe the God wants to release justice to the fatherless through the hands of His people.
