Founder of 7Thunders, longtime senior leader among the IHOP-KC community, husband to Dee, father & grandfather, Kirk Bennett puts much of the heart and soul into 7Thunders. His tenure includes such postings as Director of Prophetic Ministry at IHOP-KC, Director of the former Zadok House of Prayer and as of 2010, Vice President in IHOP-KC overseeing the Justice Division which facilitates a variety of ministry initiatives and departments on the missions base. Kirk also has a broad and extensive travel ministry which continues to expand- literally reaching to the edges of the earth.
Passionate about raising up a forerunner generation that will pray and prophesy to the nations, Kirk has a burning desire to see a royal priesthood of believers who minister to the Lord continuously and joyfully set in their places. He rejoices that God is revealing Himself as the Bridegroom, King and Judge in these days of visitation leading to holy habitations in the earth.
Operates in a strong grace of prophetic and intercession. A mother in the movement and a teacher on topics such as “the Spirit of Wisdom” “prophecy” & “Song of Solomon,” Dee ministers the Lord’s heart to others in a public setting at conferences, retreats and other special events.
Since 2006, Jenn’s worked with 7Thunders as a staff member at the Zadok House of Prayer in South Carolina and then moved with the Bennetts to Kansas City, Missouri.
