Building the House of Prayer

$80,238 of $350,000 goal

Raised by 464 people in 27 months
I was once asked, “Is Jesus worthy to be praised day and night in Michiana?” When I said, “Yes,” I realized, at that time, it wasn’t really happening. In Matthew 21:13, Jesus said very clearly that His house would be called a House of Prayer — and this is what we mean by establishing day and night prayer and worship in Michiana. Together, the body of Christ will find freedom and unity in a place of prayer and in His presence. Thus, on our watch and in our region, we must band together to walk in this great truth. Indeed, truth is our greatest strength. By walking in the day-to-day reality of truth, we can face whatever harsh circumstances come our way. I believe that we’re living in the time of the greatest battle of all mankind — the battle over who holds your heart; the battle over love. Love is a refuge, and at IHOP-Michiana, we will choose to dwell in that place. We are praying that the body of Christ in Michiana will be blessed and that they will arise into the fullness of their calling as the beautiful bride of Christ.

For us to even be at such a place for this to happen, we must recognize and honor those who have contributed to this great cause. These are sacred and precious men and women who have been teachers, worshippers, warriors in prayer, and lovers of the truth. They have sown and labored for this House of Prayer and many others all over the Earth. The late prophet Bob Jones spoke a prophetic promise over IHOP-Michiana and the Camp property to be not only a place of healing, but also a place of His presence. This prophetic promise has also been confirmed by Jason Upton, Don Potter, and many other brothers and sisters who have visited throughout IHOP-Michiana’s 15-year history.


Thank you for taking time to read a little about our journey. I would like to take a moment to tell you why and how you can support us in our vision and the plan to return to the Camp.

First and foremost, we desire to establish our mission base by moving IHOP-Michiana back to the place where it began in 2002. The vision is that, in time, this will be a place for all to come and encounter the presence of God, 24/7 — day and night! This will be a place for the body of Christ to meditate, study, and pray — for the coming harvest and revival before the return of Jesus spoken of throughout scripture. Through worship, decrees, and prayer, we will continually proclaim the worthiness and supremacy of Jesus the King of Glory. IHOP-Michiana will also continue to be a base of equipping and training through teaching and seminars that prepare the body of Christ for the triumphal return of Jesus.

So I’m asking you if you would partner with us both in your daily prayers and by giving financially to see IHOP-Michiana established at the Camp for the people of God in Michiana and beyond!

Thank you for partnering with us financially. Thank you for praying and standing with us in intercession. Thank you for journeying with us as together we build a House of Prayer in Michiana! “For my house will be called a house of prayer for all nations.” [Isaiah 56:7]

In His grip, In His love,
Bob Deering, Founder & Director

Hey all! It's been a little bit since we updated you last. We are over $60,000 and heading toward $70,000! It is so awesome and encouraging to see your gifts coming in each week. We love it and appreciate your faithfulness!

A quick update: plans for the new IHOP-M section of the project have been sent to the state and we are awaiting their response as to what we need to do next. In the meantime, we are currently remodeling the old office area into a counseling office and a maintenance room.

Please continue to pray for the funds to come in as this next part of the project will be more significant.

Pray as to how you can partner with us financially.

Pray for favor with state and local authorities regarding plans, permits, and any other procedural things we have to do.

Come out and spend time at the House of Prayer! This place is here for you to enjoy, to seek the Lord, to study, read, pray, and worship. As spring arrives, we will have the trails available and the grounds will come to life.

May the Lord bless you and may he bless this project as we labor together to build a House of Prayer in Michiana!

It's been a little while since the last update so I thought I would catch you all up to speed. The restrooms are completed (with a few small details needing to be installed) and functioning! They turned out fantastic and we are so glad that this phase is almost done! We cut a temporary door to IHOP-Michiana so that folks are able to use the new facilities and have access to the rest of the Camp.

I want to give a special thank you to everyone who has been so faithfully giving — whether online, in person, or in the weekly offerings. We could not have done it without you. For those who gave of their time and abilities to help out by building, tiling, demolition, and cleaning up, thank you so much. You were a huge blessing and you have my gratitude.

The next phase will involve demolition of the old pool room and then rebuilding the NEW HOUSE OF PRAYER! Oh you guys, it really is going to be a wonderful room and I know that many will come and enjoy being able to see out all the windows overlooking the grounds and the view of the cross as they worship, pray and seek the Lord in this room.

Please pray as we begin to push forward to raising the rest of the money we need to get this project underway and finished. Please consider a year end gift. Please consider how you can give above and beyond in 2018. We believe that building a House of Prayer in Michiana is worth it.

Be blessed! Check out the photos in the gallery below.

Hey there, friends! We haven't updated for a little bit but that doesn't mean things haven't been happening! The bathrooms have been framed; plumbing and electrical has been done; walls are insulated, drywalled, and ready to be painted; doors are hung, Painting and tiling will happen in the next week. We think you are really going to enjoy these new restrooms and they're going to look fantastic!

As you can see, we are getting close to the $50,000 mark. We are almost at $45,000! That is so awesome! Thank you to the many who have been donating either on here at GoFundMe or through your direct gifts at Voice Fellowship or The Meeting Place.

We still have a way to go - both financially and with the building. Once the restrooms are done, we can start to focus our attention to the next big phase, which will be tearing down the old pool room and rebuilding the new International House of Prayer - Michiana. It is going to be beautiful — with many windows looking over the grounds, and lots of light!

So pray with us, dream with us, and partner with us to make this a reality. We believe that God has positioned us here in the middle of Michiana to be a shining lamp of hope, healing, praise and prayer.

If you can, take a moment and donate right now. Share this link on your Facebook. Ask a friend or family member to consider sowing into this project. Thank you for standing with us and may the Lord truly bless each of you!

The next phase will involve tearing down the old pool room and building the new prayer room auditorium, We definitely appreciate all the gifts that have been given toward this project, and we encourage you to sincerely pray about how you can help us reach the goal of $350,000. Join us at the Camp during the week to worship, pray , intercede and fellowship at The International House of Prayer-Michiana!
