Tim and Olga have been ministering together for nearly 30 years. Prior to coming to IHOPKC in February 2011, they served as youth and childrenâ€™s pastors as well as in other pastoral support ministries. Their hearts are to love Godâ€™s people and to see them walk in freedom.
They are currently serving at IHOPKC as Directors of Overcoming Strongholds and traveling with their team throughout the United States, and internationally, bringing freedom to the body of Christ through training and impartation of Truth.
Statement of Faith
We believe in ONE God â€“ comprised of Father, Son (the Word) and Holy Spirit, the Creator of all things (I John 5:7)
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God,
– was conceived of the Holy Spirit,
– born of the Virgin Mary,
– was crucified, died,
– was buried,
– was resurrected,
– ascended into heaven,
– is now seated at the right hand of God the Father and
– is true God and true man (Matthew 1:20-21, John 3:16, Acts 4:10, 1 Timothy 3:16, Hebrews 10:12)
We believe the Bible in its entirety to be the inspired Word of God and the infallible rule of faith and conduct (2 Timothy 3:16)
We believe in the personal salvation of believers through the shed blood of Jesus Christ (Ephesians 3:17, John 3:1-5)
We believe in sanctification through the Word of God and by the Holy Spirit, and we believe in personal holiness shown by purity of heart and life (Hebrews 12:14)
We believe in the moral parameters outlined in God’s Word, that a marriage is between one man and one woman, and that any sexual activity outside of this divinely ordained institution is sin, something intolerable and unacceptable to a true believer (Genesis 2:24, Galatians 5:19, Ephesians 5:3, 1 Timothy 3:2, 12)
We believe in divine healing, through faith in the Name of Jesus Christ and that healing is included in the Redemption (James 5:15, 1 Peter 2:24)
– in the initial salvation experience of being “born again” (John 3:3-6),
– in water baptism, as a symbol of a believer’s dedication to Christ (Matthew 28:19, Acts 2:38),
– in the Baptism in the Holy Spirit as distinct from the New Birth (Acts 19:1-7),
– in the gifts of the Spirit (Acts 2:4, 1 Corinthians 12:7-11), and
– in the evidence of the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23)
We believe that all of these are available to believers today
We believe in the Christianâ€™s hope, the soon coming, personal and bodily return of the Lord Jesus Christ and that this will happen at “the last day”: the very end of this age (John 6:39)
We believe in a post-tribulation, pre-millennial return of the Lord, and that coincidental with His return, the dead “in Christ” will rise first, then the living believers will be “caught up to meet the Lord in the air” as we receive our glorified bodies. At that grand and glorious moment, we, the true church, the bride of Christ, will usher the King of kings into this world victoriously. The Messiah Yeshua (Jesus) will then reign from Jerusalem, and we will reign with Him over a restored paradise world (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17, Revelation 20:1-6)
Finally, we believe the following maxim: “In essentials, unity, in non-essentials, liberty, and in all things, charity!”
Here Are A Few Testimonies:
“Since my intensive for inner healing and deliverance, I am seeing changes in my life. I am able to see the lies the enemy uses in my life and that of others. My level of compassion for others has risen. I am able to love in a better way, judgement and criticism is decreasing. I have been able to enter into worship again. [That was not possible since Mom died a year ago]. I am more hungry for His presence, spending more time in the prayer room, studying, praying, praising, and interceding.”
“Thank you for the amazing OS training, June 8-11-2016. New revelations struck my heart each day. I especially appreciate your addition of Scripture to back each truth. Our Saturday morning meeting was life-changing! I spent the first half hour asking God to define and name my stronghold. When it was time to go for prayer, I went to a teamâ€¦ They prayed over me, calling out some of the very lies I had identified as falsehoods I had used to build an ugly stronghold. Then they started pronouncing gentleness over me. That is the one fruit of the Spirit I never felt I had. They just kept saying it over and over again. I kept saying, “I receive that. I receive gentleness.” We have spent the last couple of weeks with our 4 adult children and 7 grandchildren, and I have noticed a calm, quiet, boldness arise within meâ€¦.I appreciate so much that you used scripture for each tool you presented to us. Our goal is to make Kansas City our home base, and I can’t wait to get back to join OS on Tuesday nights again. Thank you so much for sending the Tuesday night recordings, they keep me in touch with you as I continue to learn while I’m away.â€
â€œI struggled with a lot of fear when I moved out here, which hindered me in many waysâ€¦.. When Tim and Olga took me through deliverance it REALLY changed my life. I experienced so much freedom and learned to fight for myself and for God. Praise the Lord!â€
â€œThe Tuesday night Overcoming Strongholds has helped me learn strategies to not only get free but help others. I came to these classes heavy and sad and each week I got betterâ€¦I am overcoming.â€
Overcoming Strongholds (OS) exists to partner with the Holy Spirit in restoring the revelation of the beauty of Jesus to Godâ€™s people through exposing and tearing down negative belief systems.
Tim and Olga have been ministering together for nearly 30 years. They are currently serving at IHOPKC as Directors of Overcoming Strongholds and traveling with their team throughout the United States, and internationally, bringing freedom to the body of Christ through training and impartation of Truth…
Our goal is to equip Christians to walk out and maintain their freedom through their authority in Christ, a lifestyle of prayer, and a study and declaration of Godâ€™s Word.
The primary OS ministry centers on discipling people in the areas of deliverance, healing, and revelation of Truth through the process of repentance, forgiveness, and understanding oneâ€™s identity in Christ.
