Frequently asked questions

General Questions

Can children come to the Global Prayer Gathering?

We will be hearing sensitive stories of abuse and injustice, so we do not recommend that you bring your children.

Are meals provided?

A boxed lunch will be served on Friday & Saturday. Due to a wide range of food allergies and dietary restrictions, we are only able to accommodate vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free options. However, there are many food options within walking distance of the Convention Center.

Is there a dress code?

No. Participants wear a variety of attire and are generally more casual throughout the weekend.

Are cameras or videography allowed?

We are excited for you to share about your experience, but for the safety of our clients and the stories we share, we do not allow any photography, video or audio recordings during main sessions or prayer rooms.

I would like to attend, but will need an invitation for visa purposes. Can you write me a letter?

The Global Prayer Gathering email invitation should meet visa requirements. Unfortunately, we do not have the ability to write individual letters.

I would like to volunteer. Will there be a volunteer’s discount?

We are very grateful for friends who volunteer to help, but we do not have the budget to offer discounted or free tickets. We have already underwritten a significant portion of each participant’s cost so that you will receive the lowest cost possible.

Does IJM provide any scholarships?

Unfortunately, we do not have scholarship funding available for the Global Prayer Gathering.
