Meet the Hendricksons

Mark and Debbie are both PK’s (preacher's kids). Both were raised in a home where the presence of the Lord was highly valued and worship music had a prominent place in much of their childhood years.

They met in 1975, married in 1977, and began leading worship together in Deb’s father’s church in St. Louis where Mike Bickle was the youth pastor. In 1983 Mark joined Mike Bickle and the leadership team at Kansas City Fellowship (KCF) as senior worship leader and associate pastor. Through 1989, they led worship and helped raise up worship teams for the six area churches all related by common leadership.

Between 1989 and 2000 the Hendrickson family lived in the rural community of Richland Center, WI. During that time they pioneered and pastored a church called The Gathering - a regional 'watering hole'. The River was a strong influence on their ministry - with lots of worship, "soaking" in the presence of the Lord, and prophetic prayer ministry. Many of those attending had visited Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship and loved the free atmosphere of exploring the presence of the Lord.

During those years the Hendrickson children, Markus, Luke, John and Lydia, began learning to sing and play instruments. They are very musically skilled and versatile in many styles, especially heart songs. The seven of them flowed in an ease and anointing that inspired and refreshed many hearts into greater faith for their own family. As schedules allow, occasionally some of the family members still minister together singing and playing instruments; keyboards, guitars, flute, cello, low whistle, bass, percussion, and drums. They have all been an integral part of the DPM ministry, but currently, all are married and live in various parts of the US.

Debbie - Mark

The Hendricksons moved back to Kansas City in 2000 to support International House of Prayer–KC (IHOP-KC), which is a worship and prayer center that has continued literally, night and day since September 1999 and currently has 1000+ staff members. At various times since it's beginning each of the Hendrickson family members have been involved in IHOP.

At this time, Mark and Debbie have pastored and conducted an itinerant worship and speaking ministry for over 35 years. Their style is one of fresh and ‘real' worship. Mark loves ‘reality worship', which he describes as using ‘living room language' and exploring fresh and creative ways of eliciting the participation of each person present. His desire is to activate and engage everyone in getting 'lost' in the love of Jesus.

What about now . . . . . .

Mark and Debbie lead worship for conferences, conduct worship seminars, and guest speak. Their worship style is contemporary, intimate and prophetic. Their worship seminars have been an effective tool for awakening the spontaneous song and Song of the Lord in many worshippers. A 'seamless' worship experience is characteristic of their worship times. Personal prophetic songs over individuals are not unusual during worship. Tears and fresh heart awakenings are common.

They have traveled widely casting the vision of IHOP-KC and presenting practical ‘clinic’ instruction to help launch people into the 'Harp and Bowl' model of worship and intercession.

A call to intimacy, an awakening of new passion in the heart for the awesome man Jesus, and a presentation of the Father’s love characterizes their guest-speaking message. More recently, the astounding grace and goodness of God toward mankind... and an upgraded perspective of who we are in Christ has become central themes in times of sharing. 'Ah-ha' moments are common and transformational.

On a more personal note, Mark finds a great deal of reward in discipling and life coaching; one-on-one, in small groups and retreats. Discovering a person's unique motivational giftings and helping them find tools to pursue those gifting are common topics.

Solving church leader (or congregational) crisis issues is also another of Mark's graces and is accompanied with a some notable testimonies.

Times of Refreshing - Intimate Ministry CD

Nearly an hour recording of the Hendrickson family as they ministered at a local KC church. In an atmosphere of soft instrumental worship, Mark gently exhorts hearts to receive the ministry of the love of Jesus. An unusual tenderness came upon many of us. This unexpected "kiss" from heaven caused tears to flow freely as hearts were washed with the intimacy of Jesus' presence. A NEW Hendrickson original song, Everlasting Love, was added to this live recording.
