God is searching for those who will passionately pursue Him. He desires for us to walk in holiness and wholeheartedness as we wait for Him to return. Over the course of four months, interns will be equipped to deepen their relationship and knowledge of God through Biblical teaching, training, community, involvement and extended time in the prayer room (300+ hours) ministering to the Lord. We offer two full-time internships: Consecrate 101 and the Leadership Track.

“My sons, do not be negligent now, for the Lord has chosen you
to stand before him and serve him, to minister before him and to burn incense.”

2 Chronicles 29:11

God is raising up praying communities around the earth and calling a people to stand before Him, to gaze on His beauty and worth while contending for revival.  The Consecrate Internship exists to immerse 18-30-year-olds in an environment for the Lord to mark hearts for these purposes. Come and experience life in the House of Prayer, be equipped, be transformed, and encounter God!

God knows you better than anyone else, including yourself. Much of the change and growth you will experience will occur through the Lord speaking to you and you encountering Him in the place of prayer. The Consecrate internship endeavors to create a focused atmosphere for you to position yourself in a place that will help you receive from the Lord in many areas.

Both internships will include similar time schedules, involvement on prayer room teams, and many hours in the prayer room. 



Prerequisite: Having completed a previous House of Prayer Internship (including 101) or spent at least a year in another House of Prayer. We would also take into consideration, applicants that have completed a DTS or Bible School training program.

Consecrate’s Leadership Track is for those desiring to be trained and equipped to be on a House of Prayer staff. This is also for those who feel led establish or give leadership to a praying community or house of prayer. There will be a lot of hands-on training opportunities in and out of the prayer room as well as a lot of 1 on 1 time with SHOP leadership.


One of the focuses of this internship is to train and equip interns on the ins and outs of developing a prayer community. Whether they use their knowledge to be involved in a praying community or a local church or not; we believe that in going through the process of learning how to establish a praying community, the interns will develop a deeper understanding of the importance of a lifestyle of prayer and how to communicate it to others. Interns will be given opportunities to be part of prayer room/worship teams.

We long to see prayer rooms across this nation strengthened, both in houses of prayer or local churches. The Consecrate internship will equip and train young men and women to carry worship and prayer as the focal point of their life in God and in ministry.

Johan Heinrichs

Internship Director

Johan Heinrichs and his wife Corrie, along with their 3 children have been an integral part of Sanctuary House of Prayer since it began 10 years ago. Johan has been on staff for the last 3 years and gives leadership to the Consecrate Internship along with leading many of the worship and prayer sets in the prayer room.


“The Lord used this internship to set me on a path that was both focused and sustainable. He has awakened my heart to the times that we are living in and the importance of studying what the scripture has to say about the end times.”


“I have grown immensely in my own personal walk with Jesus while in this internship and I am extremely grateful for the leadership that was given.”


“My favorite part about this internship is that not only do we have teaching about God but there is scheduled time in the prayer room to sit before Him. There is nothing like sitting at the Lord’s feet, hearing his word, and ministering back to His heart. “
