Hello, my name i Jake. I am 37 years old and a client at The Fathers House ministry. The last 20 years of my life can be summed up with one word... Chaotic. I have been to prison twice and jailed more times than i can remember. Frequent hospital stays due to near fatal drug overdoses, had become a regular part of my life. One day I reached a point where i no longer felt like i was living. I was mearly existing. My drug and alcohol use was out of control and i was completley miserable. I had lost my home, my car, And everything else i had ever loved ( including my relationship with my children). I had finally hit rock bottom. I decided to give pastor Lowell a call. This turned out to be one of the best decisions i had ever made. He immediatly welcomed me to join the program, and has since been guiding me in my new found christian walk. Today I am clean and sober and have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Since i joined the program i have mended the relationship with my kids, found a job, and got engaged to the love of my life. I never thought it would be possible, but life just keeps getting better. Thank you Jesus for restoring my family and for all the many blessings you keep pouring onto me. Thank you pastor Lowell for always being there when i needed you most.
I was deep beneath the surface, trapped and tricked into believing that I really was worthless! Lies of the enemy get the redeemed down too at times, especially when you're a newborn baby in Jesus and have no one to desciple you because you're fresh out of jail for becoming the monster you were always told you were! That was me. Danny Fowler, A 27 year old newborn in the faith.I came to know Jesus as Lord of my life on January 1, 2015 in a jail cell in Jackson county N.C, as a result of being exactly what the enemy tricked me into beleiving i was; a maliciously violent, meth addicted, master manipulator, who was interested in gloryifing myself. The weird thing is i actually thought i was saved... I was released from jailon Febuary 10, 2015. I was up to no good, untill i realized that my wife and 4 children were really done! I had no where to go, and no one to love me, or so i thought! A friend of mine just happened to have family in Franklin, who coinsidently coild not take us in. But after a bit of a search and almost giving up all the hope, that Jesus himself had just begun to renew my mind & heart with, we were able to contact The Fathers House, They were the only ones who would help me. Pastor Lowell Monteith and his family, led by the Holy Spirit, made a wy for people of Macon County who need and want a life change to actually take the proper steps to make it happen. I felt secire for once in my life because here I am a new born christian getting discuraged, and all of a sudden I now had the chance to learn and grow on top of having A roof over my head, a full belly, and clean cloths on my back. No more worries. The Lord has taught me very much this past year, through the word and my pastor. Some of these things are:
We are held to the highest standard that we couldnt possibly ever acheive without the sinless life, bruital death and crusifiction attoning blood, and resurection of Jesus Christ.
The annointing breaks the yoke of bondage (Isaiah 10:27) God don't call the qualified He qualifies the called.
Our faith in Him must be proven, meaning we have to talk the talk and walk it too.
If you dont know what to choose, choose Life.
We must forgive to be forgiven. No matter what the hurt was because it doesn't measure up to what Jesus did for you, because of your wickedness. This is still the heardest.
We were created in the image of the Almighty God. We have value above anything we could possibly imagine, and the ability to show Him to the lost.
These teachings, along with alot of love, grace, mercy and time built me into a warrior for God, from a wicked, evil hearted man. I can truly say I am no longer a slave to sin. I am a son of God and a servant of the kingdom of heaven.
