After serving for ten years with Youth With A Mission (YWAM) in Europe Dwayne Roberts and his wife Jennifer moved to Kansas City to help pioneer the International House of Prayer Kansas City. The Roberts were the first official staff members in Kansas City and during that time held many roles in the establishment of the missions base there. Dwayne’s greatest joy was directing and building the Onething conference, which is a part of IHOP-KC.
From IHOP-KC the Roberts planted a praying church in Florianopolis, Brazil, they started in their living room and the fruit that came forth was amazing. After serving there for 6 years a thriving church, praying room, and training center was established that is still continuing to grow today.

He lives in Denver with his wife Jennifer and two of their kids, Chloe and Elijah.
