The Father's House is all about people encountering the reality of God. This shapes all of our core values, which in turn determine everything we do.
As we invest our lives in these core values with a spirit of excellence and generosity, we believe God will continue to build a strong local church that will make a difference.
TFH Church Plants are autonomous churches with their own leadership teams. These churches look to The Father’s House lead team for spiritual covering and operate with the same name, values, and DNA.
TFH Campuses are separate locations but are all part of the same church, The Father's House. Each campus operates under the same lead team and church board, with a local campus pastor. The Father's House is one church in multiple locations.
TFH Church Plants operate independently with their own Lead Pastor, board and leadership team. These churches carry the same DNA of The Father's House, but operate with their own unique style and culture to reach the cities God has placed them in.
