Today is Sarah's 41st birthday. Today is also the day we received an email informing us that we have fully secured the loan that we need to buy our house. This was the final obstacle in our way- we are now on our way to ESCROW and will be finishing up the paperwork in the next couple of weeks!!! THANK YOU to everyone who has supported us financially and/or in prayer- it has made ALL the difference. Together (with JESUS), we saved the Morningstar Ministry House! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

More Info

The legacy of this house has always been for the ministry of God’s love to flow from a place of prayer to the city around it. The previous owner, Phyllis, who has now gone on to be with the Lord, was a faithful prayer warrior and generously took care of the poor and the elderly for years in this very home. It was always her desire that this house would be used as a community that valued prayer so much that ultimately it would lead to revival in San Francisco. We know that it’s no coincidence that we are continuing in that legacy to see this dream of authentic revival spring up right here in SF and we are closer than ever before to seeing it. Please help us finish well!

I (Adam) was redeemed from the homosexual lifestyle in the Castro district over 20 years ago and am now happily married with 3 children, all who have been raised in this house. We live in a culture where the enemy is working overtime to pervert and destroy God’s ultimate design for family and we believe it is God’s will to not only survive in a city like San Francisco, but even more, to thrive, and to put on display the glorious redemptive power of the Cross as a living witness! We have felt a strong call from the Lord to “marry the land” (Isaiah 62:4) here in San Francisco, which is such a transient and difficult place to do ministry. We have been ranked the #1 most unchurched city in America. From spiritual warfare to impossible financial sustainability, many pastors and ministries start off hopeful and excited, but all too often, leave before they fulfill their mission. Close to 13 years later, we are just starting to see the first fruits of our dreams in Christ come to fruition and we are not backing down!   I have been blessed to be able to share my testimony online with over 1 million people worldwide and I am consistently ministering to many who struggle with same sex attraction. 

For over 12 years, we have been blessed to have stewardship over this beautiful home in San Francisco’s Garden District. Our house, called the Morningstar House, is a 9 bedroom house and has been the epicenter of our ministry. Besides our family, it has housed between 8-20 additional Christians at any given time throughout the years.  We are one of the few Christian community houses in San Francisco and it would be a travesty to lose ground in such a crucial moment.  We have been living out our vision to provide a community of intentional discipleship, hospitality, and most importantly, a lifestyle of prayer that has been the launching point for multiple ministry expressions, especially lovesf247.com. Love San Francisco is a ministry we've pioneered that is part of a nationwide movement to re-evangelize the cities of America (www.firebasemovement.com). As the city leaders of San Francisco, besides providing continual prayer and outreach opportunities locally, we also serve on a national council and help to equip and send teams to the cities in our network during their prayer/outreach events.  We have hosted many extended prayer meetings, where we worked across denominational lines and helped to establish lasting unity in San Francisco, the greater Bay Area and beyond. Our community has also been catalytic in equipping and sending the church in SF into the work of fruitful evangelism which has culminated to the point of training up more than 100 believers over the past 2 years to share the gospel with thousands of unbelievers.

Our dream is to establish a united, regional night-and-day worship and prayer center in SF from which outreach can flow,  'round the clock.  We have had many confirming words and dreams from the Lord that we will own this house as a base for ministry  and we are believing for a miracle!  The owners are facing an immediate need to sell and we have an extremely small window in which to acquire the down payment before it's raised to market value and listed. This is an incredible opportunity for our family and our continued ministry reach for many years to come.

THIS IS WHERE YOU COME IN:

PRAYER:

Please join us in fervently agreeing for God's ultimate will to be done in this situation.  There are a number of challenges to the final purchase of the home, but we have peace knowing that God is with us in this process.  Please pray for not only the financial provision but also for wisdom and revelation in the details of purchasing the home.

FINANCES:

We need to raise an initial amount of $28,000 immediately for various fees (closing costs, escrow, etc.) in order to finalize the loan for our house.  Please prayerfully consider giving to this cause today!  This is a great opportunity to be a part of what the Lord is doing through our ministry.  Sowing financially into this ministry house will connect you to the harvest in San Francisco and beyond (Philippians 4:17). 

(Any additional funds raised beyond the $28,000 will be put directly towards the principle balance of the house)

Homestretch!! We have been so blessed by all the outpouring of support we've received- God is really doing this and we couldn't be more excited to see Him glorified through this. We are only $10,000 away from making this dream an absolute reality- would you please take a moment to share this personally with anyone in your network that you feel would be called to partner with us? This is making a lasting mark on the city we love- and ensuring that our ministry stays here, where we are called, for a very, very long time! We have a purchase contract being drafted AS WE SPEAK and all the other requirements for the loan to go through have been met... it is only this last $10k that we need to nail down. Thank you again and may God richly bless you <3

Update #1

Hey everyone!! Sorry for some of the radio silence on this campaign- we have been on a giant rollercoaster with the house but we have some VERY promising news. By the extreme grace of God, we have been pre-approved for a loan! We are *so close* finalizing this- the last hurdle we need to pass is to cover our closing costs. Would you take a moment and pass along to like-minded friends in Jesus? Please help us cross the finish line! Once we have the loan, we are more than able to cover the mortgage and monthly fees- we just need this boost to initially secure the house. Thanks for being a huge part of our story and KEEP PRAYING! :) <3
