What is GHOP?
The Greenville House of Prayer (GHOP) is a community of believers that serve Jesus and His purposes in Greenville, SC and unto the ends of the earth.
GHOP was founded on May 8, 2007 and now has developed into a community that's committed to worship, intercession, and authentic discipleship while serving the city of Greenville. We believe ministry is done best when our lives are rooted in prayer and worship that focuses on intimacy with God hence our commitment to such values.
GHOP's leadership team consists of representatives from several different congregations in our area. We desire for Jesus to see the unity he prayed for in John 17 become a reality for the Church in Greenville. We believe one of our mandates is to contend in prayer for this unity and to serve the Body of Christ towards the fulfillment of this promise.
What is the vision of GHOP?
Our vision is to see continual prayer & worship become a reality in the hearts of God’s people resulting in God's plans & purposes being fulfilled in our city & throughout the entire earth.
We see God's house being restored to the house of prayer that it’s called to be, resulting in a unified Body of Christ across racial, denominational, and economics lines that is passionate for Jesus and His Kingdom. We see true disciples of Jesus being made as believers return to their first love and are rooted in the place of prayer. Out of this place of intimacy and discipleship, we see intercessory missionaries being sent to preach the gospel to all nations, ultimately ushering in the return of King Jesus as He establishes His reign on the earth. We believe we can help accomplish the above, by the Grace of God, as we facilitate prayer, worship and intercession that’s grounded in Christ-centered Community, Unity, and Discipleship.
What is the mission of GHOP?
Our mission is to co-labor with Holy Spirit and the universal Body of Christ to see continual worship and prayer become a reality for the purpose of:
These are four of the assignments that FUEL our mission of contending for continual worship and prayer to be established in the Body of Christ. We believe our mission will be accomplished as we give ourselves to the narrow path while also calling others to a sacrificial lifestyle of devotion to Jesus. We desire to live and promote an authentic relationship with God that is characterized by the fruits and gifts of the Spirit. We believe this life of intimacy and power will spring out of a strong dedication to prayer, worship, fasting, simplicity, giving, community, missions, and deep encounter in the Word of God.
