We are excited about our new series and the season we are in as a church family. Welcome to Living for Legacy. This series is all about living for the bigger picture, investing in what matters most and living beyond ourselves. I hope you will plan on making it to church every weekend as we hear stories of what your investments are doing, as well as consider the possibilities of the future. As a church, we truly have been entrusted with much. So, just as we have come this far by faith and have seen God do amazing things through our community, we want to be faithful moving into the future. Our key verse for this series is:
“Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things” — Matthew 25:21
During the final week of our series, December 8/9, we will be giving you the opportunity to invest in one of our 5 Legacy Lanes of Generosity. These are the major projects, outreaches, expansions, and visionary exploits that are waiting to be conquered.
God has called the pastors and lead team of our church to discover and define the vision for the future of The Father’s House and all of us together will determine the speed in which we will fulfill it!
Moving Forward in Faith! Pastor Dave & Donna
When we truly begin to determine the extent of our legacy, we look to future generations, and how we can leave an impact on them. It is our responsilbility to live beyond our own lives, thinking about our children and the future they will create.

At The Father’s House, we have enjoy an incredible series of accomplishments that affect our church on a daily basis. There are so many stories of children who were raised in, transformed by, or impacted by the ministries of our church. God has moved in the midst of our young people, and we will continue to reach for the next level!
As we look to spread the gospel “beyond our borders,” we are excited with what God has already done, while believing Him for even more in 2019!

God loves a church that affects the community it’s in. We have been faithful to do that in our community outreach ministry. Here’s what we have done
God’s just getting started! In 2019, we are believing for more!

God has been faithful. Ever since Pastor Dave set foot on our land to pray and seek God in the early days of his life and ministry, the Holy Spirit has preserved our land and eventually guided us to it. It has been good, just as God is good.

But God is not in the business of being satisfied. We believe God wants us to press in for more! We believe that the bible is very clear that Jesus’ Great Commission included a church that expands, grows, and flourishes.
That’s why we don’t think we are “done” with the property we own, and we are believing God for more.
This year has been a landmark year for our church with over $500,000 raised to launch The Father’s House San Francisco and The Father’s House Orange County. Hundreds of people have already called these new churches home, and God is already moving and changing lives in these new church plants.
What’s next? We believe God is calling us to even more.

For our younger children, Adventure Camp is a world-class experience where kids are not just enjoying a church day camp experience, but full theme-park quallity bible-based stage productions, teaching from incredible pastors, authentic ministry times where freedom, healing, and even the baptism of the Holy Spirit is experienced. And more fun than any other summer activity! In 2018, our church provided scholarships for 226 kids – bringing our total number of campers to 1,000+! Let’s make way for more children in 2019!
Last year, your generosity sponsored 110 under-resourced students to go to Encounter Camp! We have seen students come to camp with everything from low self-esteem to drug and alcohol addictions completely set free, by the power of the Holy Spirit! This year we are believing God for even more! More students set free, affecting their campuses, families, and communities. More students experiencing the reality of God!
When we ask students what the highlights of their spiritual journey has been in the last year, Encounter Conference is consistently at the top of the list, and has been at The Father’s House for over 15 years. Imagine, thousands of young people encountering God under our roof, with amazing worship experiences and world-class speakers, activating the Word in their lives. It’s a breathtaking gathering that is making an impact on the next generation.
There are 50+ Jr. High & High Schools in Vacaville, East Bay, Napa, Roseville needing this avenue to help bring Christ on campus! We currently run 11 campus clubs, let’s double that in 2019!
We want to invest into our monthly TFH Youth Rally Nights, these are one of the biggest opportunities for our students to bring friends far from God to experience Jesus!
As we expand our very successful champions club, we will take over the current grow track room. We will build a new grow track room to continue adding people to the church as they are saved, empowered, and equipped.
In early 2018, we launched the Champions Club at our Vacaville campus. These two, state-of-the-art, rooms effectively serve special needs children ages 5-12. Through this ministry incredible connections are taking place; 30 families have become regular church-attendees, a majority from outside the church. These attendees have been able to experience coming to church as a family and church community – something they have never been able to do before. We believe that God is truly moving in the special needs community, so we are planning to make room for even more families.
We are just getting started! Less than 1% of churches in America have a ministry to reach special needs kids and their families. Our heart is to bring Champions Club to our Roseville Campus. Our 2019 goal includes building and furnishing a world-class special needs classroom, allowing Sacramento Area special needs families to experience true community and life in Christ.
God has recently opened a door for us as a church to reach beyond Northern California through television. We will be upgrading necessary aspects of our video, lighting, and stage design to deliver a quality viewing experience.
The Surge Project is a program whose goal is to “make a global impact through church-planting,” and provides a structured avenue to “empower qualified native workers to be sent out into their own nation to spread the gospel.” In our current giving, we provide $1,000/month. In 2019, we believe God wants us to commit to more, so our goal is to plant 25 churches at $3,000/month.
Messenger International is John and Lisa Bevere’s organization which has given over 10 million resources to pastors and leaders in nearly 70 countries to help teach, reach, and rescue. In our giving, we have increased every year - $18,000 in 2016, $24,000 in 2017, and $50,000 in 2018. In 2019, we are believing for an increase to $75,000.
In our SL (School of Leadership) Internship Program, we offer International Student Scholarships, which has allowed us to provide $15,000 to host one student from the Dominican Republic. We believe that we can effectively equip even more leaders from around the world by providing international students attend TFH SL for 9-months to be strengthened, encouraged and equipped to impact their community for Christ.
Short term missions have been some of our most powerful experiences to not only equip and empower other nations, but to allow our own mission- minded leaders to grow in their giftings as well. Look at some of the nations God has touched through us, and how we are increasing our faith for the future:
