The Ramp with Karen Wheaton
The Ramp is a house of awakening where hundreds from across the world gather to pursue the one true, living God. It began in 1998 when Karen Wheaton followed the Holy Spirit’s drawing back to her hometown, Hamilton, Alabama, and was alarmed by the apathy and sin that infected the youth of the city. A small prayer meeting with seven teenagers quickly grew into the international ministry the Ramp is today. Although young people primarily attend, the Ramp is not just a youth thing; it is a hunger thing. Countless numbers have been impacted, forsaking a lifestyle of sin to embrace a real relationship with Jesus Christ. Those awakened ones, once dead in sin, are now the revival and the movement intercessors have been praying for. The Ramp’s intent is to summon the youth of the nations to the reality of Jesus Christ and to equip them to impose His Kingdom.
The Ramp has not only a global assignment, but also a local assignment as well. The nations are being reached through its websites, monthly gatherings, and weekly television show that airs on seven Christian networks. The local community is being reached through the weekly meetings and student outreaches. Expansion is coming soon to the ministry to include a camp, Bible school, and house of prayer. Through all that is does, the Ramp declares this to be its mission statement: “To awaken a generation out of spiritual death and religious complacency, calling them to their individual purpose and corporate responsibility as an offensive army imposing the Kingdom of God.” God is building a community of believers in Hamilton who are in one accord to fulfill this assignment on a global and local scale.
