Interview: IHOP Ministry Leader and Bible Teacher Stuart Greaves Talks Prayer, Trauma, and Racial Justice

“Within the church, a vacuum on the theology of justice has been created,” said Stuart Greaves, a senior leader at International House of Prayer-Kansas City (IHOP-KC). “The enemy can take advantage of that and sow confusion. As racial conflict in the nation increases, believers need to be equipped to be a voice of wisdom in the days ahead.”

Greaves, who is Black, has spent the last 21 years pursuing a unique calling: helping to sustain 24/7 prayer with worship that has persisted at IHOP-KC since September 19, 1999. The senior church minister helps to lead a congregation that now numbers more than 4,000 alongside founder Mike Bickle. In addition to serving as vice president of the church’s Global Prayer Division, Greaves teaches on the theology of justice.

In a phone interview from his office adjacent to the prayer room, Greaves laments where evangelicals have fallen short and shares how the church can reflect true justice. The transcript has been lightly edited for length.
