You do not want to tour this. It should not even be on this site as it is a cult church that takes advantage of people. Do not go here. Youth go here and get swept in and never talk to their family again. I lived by it for 9 years.

One of my favorite places to spend time. The place is not fancy but the 24 hour worship and intercession are wonderful.

My husband and I have watched IHOPKC from our home state of Louisiana since 2005 and we visited several times over the years. We moved to KC in June of 2015 to live and be a part of the spiritual community as a family. Our daughters wanted to attend IHOPU and join the "watchmen on the wall" in night and... More

More than I bargained for. IHOP is like an oasis in the middle of the desert. Truly a place to be refreshed, revived and spiritually nurished. Perfect for quiet and peaceful meditation and really get away from the rigors of a fast pace work life. Cant wait to go back!

Thank you God for these people. I had a wonderful vacation and so much enjoyed the many hours in the prayer room. God is just so present here and I left like I had just been kissed.

As a place of faith and worship ... Yes, maybe. As a cultural attraction... I didn't see it. It's not even an achitectual interest unless strip mall churches are envogue... No offense ... This was a disappointment and misleading. I'm not sure this attraction fits in with the mission of Trip Advisor.

I've visited and reviewed this place, and my reviews have been deleted. I'm not sure why, but I'll post my experience again because potential visitors deserve to hear about a wide range of experiences when making their decisions. First of all, I think the International House of Prayer does some good things for the South KC and Grandview communities. It's... More

I'm Evangelical Southern Baptist. This is unbiblical for sure. They have an unaccredited school where they take people's money for what in return I don't know. I think it's a little on the cultish side. The extremely repetitive music is a dead give away.
