A CHURCH THAT BECKONS ‘WELCOME HOME’ TO EVERY MAN, WOMAN AND CHILD WHO WALKS THROUGH THE DOORS. DESIRING THIS TO BE A GOOD HOME FOR SOME TO “GROW OLD IN” AND OTHERS TO “GROW UP IN” [ZECHARIAH 8:4-5 MSG]

The Greece campus launch has been a huge celebration!

To see people who live there have a nearby campus to invite their friends to, get involved, connected and find a new home is part of seeing God’s vision through The Father’s House fulfilled. The vision is to place a campus within 15 minutes drive of the one million people that live in the Rochester metro area.

In just one short year, we have seen through the Greece Campus:

1,000  FIRST TIME GUESTS

900  WEEKLY ADULTS
