The Vision Course is a five-month training program for young adults, set in the context of the thriving 24-7 Prayer community of Navah Church KC (formerly the Kansas City Boiler Room). Come be consumed with Jesus, immersed in Kingdom family, fueled by prayer, rooted in identity and launched in love.
The Vision Course was inspired by Pete Greig's Vision Poem, a radical call to discipleship written on the wall of the first 24-7 prayer room, which went on to mobilize countless disciples around the world. If your vision is to change the world, The Vision Course will change your life.
During The Vision Course you will LIVE amongst a vibrant prayer-centered community in Kansas City, Missouri, LEARN about who God is and who you are in His eyes (journeying through the entire Bible), and LOVE the world in practical ways, including opportunities for cross-cultural local, national or international missions. It’s spiritual formation, Biblical education and social transformation all rolled into one amazing course.

THE LOVE PHASE
(May 1, 2017 - May 31, 2017)
We have many opportunities to serve cross-culturally in national and international missions. The mission of each class will be determined based upon that year and also where the local Boiler Room’s focus is in that season. We will partner with the larger 24-7 Prayer community in bringing God’s Kingdom to earth.
Here are a few of the places we have on our radar for potential LOVE Phase locations:
USA - Boiler Room Communities (Tulsa, Oklahoma / Grand Rapids, Michigan)
International - Japan (Tokyo / Iwaki / Hitachi), Lebanon (Beirut)
Fundraising for LOVE Phase costs are separate from program costs. For more information on program costs, payment plans, housing and other details, feel free to contact us at VisionCourseKC@24-7prayer.us.
THE GOD STORY
The God Story is one of the staples of our curriculum. It is a chronological, narrative approach to teaching Scripture spanning the entire Bible from Genesis to Revelation. It equips us with a big picture understanding of Scripture and imprints us with kingdom family DNA. The goal of the God Story is to encounter God, discover your identity as sons and daughters in Christ and step forward into Kingdom destiny in the Father’s story.
