is to minister to the heart of the Lord. Come join us as we seek His presence and allow His presence to transform our hearts so we can transform cities.



Jesus said “My house will be a house of prayer.“ Our primary activity is centered around prayer and worship. “As for me, I will call upon God and the Lord shall save me. Evening and morning and at noon, I will pray, and cry aloud and He shall hear my voice.”  – Psalm 55:16-17


His presence not only transform us but is intended to transform others through us. We empower people in their gifts, callings and destinies to impact them. – Eph. 4:11-12


We are called Kings and Priests by God – Priests who “come in“ to minister to God; Kings who “go out“ and transform the world. Priests have access; Kings have authority. The love that transforms God‘s people is the same love we take out to transform the world. – 1 Kings 3:7, 1 Peter 2:9, Rev 1:6

A Culture of Coming In & Going Out

The In and Out Lifestyle is centered upon Loving God and Loving People by daily Coming In (worship, prayer, intercession) and daily Going Out (family, ministry, your workplace, service, missions). This way of life is centered upon the first and second commandment (loving God and loving people). Coming In properly will naturally result in Going Out properly. This lifestyle has shaped the Upper Room “culture“ of love and power transforming communities everywhere. (Matthew 22:36-39, Ezekiel 46:9-10, Ephesians 3:14-19)

Coming In

The primary activity that defines Coming In for the believer is worship. Worship is expressed through song, prayer, adoration, praise, thanksgiving and other activities that focus one’s heart on encountering who Jesus is. This is the centerpiece for our community at the Upper Room. Our mandate from the Lord is to daily gather his people for corporate worship, praise, thanksgiving, adoration, and intercession through song and Scripture. (Psalm 55:17, Daniel 6:10, 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18) Upper Room’s focus is unto this primary activity of corporate worship. Our desire is to see a city set on a hill that participates in this activity regularly. We envision men and women from every denomination, socioeconomic background, and ethnicity Coming In to worship Jesus. People who participate in the daily exaltation and magnification of His name above their lives and city together in one place. The unity sought by the global church will be found in no other place. The Coming In Activity is foundational to creating and sustaining a move of God on the earth today. (Acts 2:2, Matthew 21:3, Mark 11:17, Isaiah 56:17, Psalm 22:3, 1 Corinthians 3:22-23, Acts 2:46)

Going Out

Jesus’ original Going Out commission to the 12 disciples was “freely you have received, freely give.” We can only give to the world that which we have first received from Jesus. Going Out is about presenting to the world that which we have received (Coming In) from Jesus. As you behold Him, you will become like Him for this is the goal of the Christian faith. The world is longing to encounter the Jesus we read about in the Gospels. For too long we have settled with telling the world about Jesus rather than showing the world Jesus. While our words are important, our works are too. We want to preach the Gospel both in word and deed. (Matthew 10:8, Romans 8:29, 2 Corinthians 3:18, 1 Corinthians 2:4, 4:20, Romans 15:18-19) Going Out is our ability to re-present Jesus to the world. But we must first learn how to Come In to the Lord’s presence and understand who Jesus is. As we encounter our King of Kings, we are empowered in His commission to extend His Kingdom. Jesus had one primary message: “the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.” Worship (Coming In) results in a people who witness (Going Out) the One they have encountered, resulting in bringing heaven to earth (Matthew 3:2, 4:17, 6:10, 12:28, 21:31, Mark 1:15, Luke 10:9-11, 11:20, John 3:3, 1 Peter 2:9)

Where It All Began

The In & Out Lifestyle marked the life of Moses, Joshua, Caleb, David, Solomon and others. It was the hallmark quality for effective leadership in the nation of Israel. In fact, the In & Out Lifestyle is mentioned in Moses’s retirement, Joshua’s appointment, Caleb’s final victory, and Solomon’s request for wisdom. Ezekiel mentions the In & Out Lifestyle when he describes the order of service in Coming In before the Prince, being changed and going out with power. Needless to say it is an important activity for us to understand. (Deuteronomy 31:2, Numbers 27:15-23, Joshua 14:11, 1 Samuel 18:16, 1 Kings 3:7, Psalm 121:8, Jeremiah 17:19-27, Ezekiel 46:9-10)
