A Generation Alive in Christ Awakening the World

The Youth Awakened program is filled with amazing opportunities in ministry and fellowship. Youth will receive hands-on ministry training, powerful teachings, impartation, and opportunities to walk out their faith on the streets of Oklahoma City.

Youth will have an authentic encounter with God while growing in boldness and learning about their authority in Christ.

Will Hart

Iris Global COO

In 1999 Will walked into the basement of a church not knowing why he was there. That night the Holy Spirit reached out and grabbed him by the heart and he was never the same. Since then Will and his wife Musy have traveled and ministered with Bob Bradbury, Randy Clark, and Rolland and Heidi Baker. Will’s call is to take the simplicity of the gospel and the power of the Holy Spirit wherever he goes.

In 2016, Heidi & Rolland Baker asked Will to take over as Iris Global’s Chief Operating Officer. Now, in addition to traveling the globe speaking as an itinerant, he operationally runs Iris Global.


“He isn’t looking for you, he is looking for all of you. Even in the moment of the biggest blessing of your life, he wants all of you.” – Will Hart

Youth will be trained and equipped in the 5-step prayer model, power evangelism by Global Awakening Associates.


Youth Awakened will encounter the Lord through powerful worship at all morning and night sessions. 


Youth will listen to teaching from Global Awakening Associates, and more. They will be activated to seek after the Father’s Heart and deepen their walk with the Lord. 



Youth will be put into teams with teens from around the world and compete against one another throughout the week for first place. They will play team-building games to learn how to work with one another and form long-lasting friendships. 



“Getting to be in an atmosphere that is saturated with the presence of the Lord for an extended period of time like it is in conferences like this has allowed my boys to experience many gentle yet powerful encounters with the Lord, helping them to understand examples of what it looks like and feels like when God shows up. Most of the world is shut out and their attention is more readily focused on God. My son especially loved missions outreach and praying for the people they encountered. When it was his turn to pray, his heart was overjoyed as they watched God show up and touch the life of the lady they were praying for. Her back was partially healed right there on the spot, and as they walked away, they just kept praying that she would receive a full recovery.”
“One of our youth came back home and prayed for his mom’s feet and her arches were restored, fully healed. Delivered of fear of evangelizing for just about everyone. Came back with fire that is spreading to others in the church.”
“During outreach, one little boy about 7 years old was very impacted by our team. He came back around us by the food and wanted a bag of chips. We gave him a whole arm full. More than he could hold. We had so much leftover we have him a whole box and he was afraid to take it. We followed him back to his apartment. His mom had received food but we offered her more. She said she had 7 kids and was thankful. So little man came back to the group with us and enjoyed a bunch of strawberries. He asked us when we would come back. As our buses left he ran to the gate and waved by. I told him Jesus really really loved him!!! He wanted to give him all of those chips.”
“One daughter felt activated during prayer on the first night. She felt prompted to pray for people the rest of the week as she was overcome with the Love of God. One daughter felt moved to tears as her friend received prayer and she is just so excited to share God with more people. One daughter began to feel anxious and cried upon going up for prayer and wanted to leave. As we stepped back to the middle section, a volunteer came and prayed for her she said the sounds and noise that was pressing in on her felt farther away as if the Lord placed her in the middle of a bubble and she FELT PEACE! She had also been struggling with eating and not feeling hungry for months. Her stomach would feel upset at the thought of eating. I am happy to report that she IS HUNGRY and has been since the conference!”
