The Father's House


Our Beliefs

"The Father’s House is a church that values the Presence of God. Our goals are to be a local church that is a 'safe place', where people can be themselves and be accepted and loved unconditionally. We want to be a church where people can be free to worship God as expressively as they wish, without feeling self-conscious. Our music is positive and upbeat, and our lyrics often contain intimate expressions of our love for God. We try to make our teaching spiritually uplifting, while being relevant to the practical challenges we face every day."

--Pastor Mike Guarnieri

Food Ministry

4061 Wadsworth Road
Norton, OH 44203

Free groceries given with love on the 3rd Saturday of every month at 10:00am!

The Father's House Food Ministry is dedicated to providing food and other practical items to those in need within our community. We focus on bringing these people to a life-changing experience with Christ, and help them become productive citizens and members of the Church.

Our heart is to save the lost and dying, to bring in the end time harvest, to share the good news of salvation, and to minister to the poor and needy. We have witnessed many salvations, healings and deliverances through this ministry. We have been steadily reaching out to the community since 1996. This is clearly a demonstration of the love of God when we reach out and provide people with food, clothing, direction and hope for their lives.
