Corey Russell is the Director of the Forerunner Program at the International House of Prayer University (IHOPU), discipling and training young preachers and leaders.

The purpose of the Forerunner Program is to help facilitate and cultivate a lifestyle of prayer and fasting, and a love for the Word of God in the context of night-and-day prayer. Our desire is to see every student discipled through regular interactions with leaders and fellow students as they reach for the fullness of God’s destiny in their lives. Students are taught, equipped, and mentored in healing, prophecy, and deliverance. It is our aim that upon completion of this program, every student will have a two-year history in engaged prayer, regular fasting, and the Word of God, and be further equipped to minister in the power of the Holy Spirit.
