Q: What will the schedule be like?
We start our days bright and early at 7:30am, and normally finish around 9 or 9:30pm. Though the schedule is full, you are only here for 5 days, and we want to make the most of it. Each day includes a prayer room briefing, long hours in the prayer room, a teaching, family group over dinner, and then a lab or an encounter night.

Q: What do encounter nights look like?
Encounter nights are extended ministry moments. We start off with prolonged worship and usually end with ministry time. Our goal is to wait on the Lord and encounter His heart.

Q: What are labs and how are they different from teachings?
Labs are hands-on group learning moments. While teachings are usually more lecture/preaching style, labs are training moments where you’ll be singing, leading, or speaking together.

Q: Will food and housing be provided?
Yes, food and housing is included in the program cost. It is recommended you bring some extra money for snacks and to pitch in for gas money of whoever’s driving.

Q: What will housing be like?
Housing will be in our CEC building. We highly encourage you to bring bedding as bedding is not provided. There will be multiple people in each room, and men and women will be in separate rooms.

Q: Are there group discounts?
Yes! There are also local discounts for those who go to school close to Kansas City! Please email us at luke18@ihopkc.org for more information.

Q: Are scholarships available?
We encourage you to try raising support from your church, friends, and family. We know there are amazing people that would love to send you, but there are scholarships available upon request. We will work with you individually on the amount, depending on circumstances.


Q: Should I bring my car?
If you have a vehicle, it would be very helpful if you could bring it (please make sure that you have the state-required liability insurance as well). You will be responsible to get around. We travel short 5-10 minute distances every day. However, you may be able to get a ride with other participants. If you don’t bring a car, please be mindful to pitch in for gas to the ones who do offer rides.

Q: Which airport should I fly into?
A: It will be MCI (Kansas City International Airport).

Q: Are airport pickups available if I come by plane?
We offer airport pick ups for those who get in/leave on the exact start/end dates of our Spring Break Fuel School 2023.

Q: What to bring?
Bible, laptop/tablet (optional), Bible study materials (eg. journal), bedding (sleeping bag OR pillow, sheets, and blanket), towel, casual & modest clothing, personal toiletries, alarm clock, spending cash, prescription medications. Optional: Portable musical instruments, swim attire (ladies, one-piece swimsuits only please), athletic clothing. We will send this list in your acceptance packet if and when you do get accepted.

Usually Kansas City spring can be warm or cool depending on the year (35-60 degrees F/ 2-16 degrees C)
