TFH Worship

Intensives | Onsite
May 2 - 4, 2024

Our Mission

Empowering local-church worship leaders for presence-driven worship.


What is it?

The TFH Worship Intensives is a 3-day event where worship leaders and worship pastors can be immersed into the worship culture and environments of The Father’s House.  There are many worship training events and retreats across the U.S. and each has a slightly different aim, while information is easier than ever to get through.  That’s where the TFH Worship Intensive is different in that you will receive impartation along with the information and relationships from a house that has been presence-focused while reaching those far from God for over 27 years.

Our Lead Pastor, Dave Patterson, had it in his heart to build a church for the presence and glory of God and in a way that is attractive to those far from Him.  The uniqueness of what’s happening at TFH is that there is a tangible, marked presence of God in our services, but we work hard to make it easy for those who are far from God to walk in the doors and experience Him.  In short, if you’re looking to experience - and reproduce in your local-church - an atmosphere where there’s a high value on people encountering God in a way that welcomes both seasoned believers and those seeking Him, then the TFH Worship Intensives are for you.
