After years of ministry in San Francisco, please help us stay in the city God called us to. God has used us to catalyze united prayer/worship/outreach and the momentum is building... help us purchase our ministry base!
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:
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.
We need to raise an initial amount of $300,000 immediately for various fees (downpayment, etc.) in order to secure a loan for the 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 $300,000 will be put directly to the principle balance of the house)
