Francis Chan is scheduled to speak at the IHOP-KC Onething Conference in late December.  So is Banning Liebscher, director of Jesus Culture. And, yes, Jesus Culture will be there as well. Matt Redman is also on the docket.
Last year International House Of Prayer leadership scheduled a Catholic Track at Onething without ever revealing this on the IHOP website. The Catholic Track speakers planned to “draw upon Catholic doctrine, practices, and tradition and touch on the larger conference’s themes centering on Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount.” 
Catholic participation was canceled, so the IHOP effort at “unity” did not happen.
According to Franciscan University of Steubenville, IHOP-KC founder Mike Bickle noted “that many IHOP teachings draw upon the works of St. John of the Cross and St. Teresa of Ávila, as well as contemporary Catholic authors including Father Henri Nouwen and Father Thomas Dubay, SM. The IHOP 24-hour prayer room, he says, was inspired by the spiritual practices of Catholic European monks, such as St. Bernard of Clairvaux.” 
IHOP-KC is a hotbed of contemplative prayer, much of it modeled after the Catholic contemplatives Bickle mentioned in the interview. 
At a recent conference of The Berean Call, Keith Gibson, author of Wandering Stars: Contending for the Faith with the New Apostles and Prophets, did a wonderful job exposing the fallacious IHOP teaching about the Bridal Paradigm. In the question and interview segment someone asked him what he thought of Francis Chan.
Pastor Gibson said he appreciated much of what Francis Chan had done, but wished he hadn’t appeared at the Passion 2012 event where the Catholic contemplative practice of Lectio Divina appeared to take place.
Now Francis Chan is scheduled to speak at the IHOP event. He is going from Lectio Divina to Contemplative Central. Chan’s presence at the conference will give IHOP spiritual legitimacy in the eyes of many.
It is important that IHOP’s teachings and practices (and those of Jesus Culture as well) are pointed out to Pastor Chan before this conference takes place.
Will this make a difference?
