FINALLY, PRACTICAL RESOURCES TO HELP CHURCHES BETTER MINISTER TO FATHERLESS FAMILIES!
Show the fatherless families in your church, ministry, and community that you care! Most churches are not sure what to do about fatherlessness! Better fulfill James 1:27 through practical ministry in your church and community with the fatherless families (single moms, grandparents raising their grandchildren, and fatherless children, teens, and adults)!

READ WHAT THESE MINISTRY LEADERS HAVE TO SAY!
Dr. Elmer Towns
"I completely agree with Life Factors Ministries that fatherlessness is the number one social issue in our country. I am very impressed with what Sean Teis and Life Factors Ministries are doing to address this issue in our country. The God is my Dad ministry is definitely a great way to evangelize & disciple fatherless families. Their training is something every church should explore. I highly recommend having Sean come and speak on fatherlessness to your congregation, student body, or event."
Dr. Michelle Watson-Canfield
"Sean Teis is the real deal. Having known him for years, I can attest to the fact that this is a man who walks his talk. As an invested, dialed-in dad to his three kids, Sean is living proof that God is always writing our redemptive stories that give Him glory, and any man can become the father his children need when he puts God first and experiences healing from his Heavenly Father. I love the focus of Sean’s life message, which highlights that God truly is a Father to the fatherless. And because he has lived this personally---having been fathered by the best Dad in the world---one thing is undoubtedly clear about Sean: like Father, like son."
Pastor Kenny Baldwin
"I'm 100 percent in support of what you are doing at Life Factors."
Dr. Jim Burns
"I love the passion and energy Sean Teis has for helping people deal with fatherlessness. His ministry is powerful and much needed."
Producer Stephen Kendrick
"Sean Teis has a powerful testimony that inspired me! I love how God has redeemed the pain of Sean’s past to now introduce others to the heart of our perfect Heavenly Father."
Pastor Johnny Pope
"God is using Sean to help straighten the crooked places in homes today...We have had Sean speak in our church and our people loved him...I love Sean and his family and I know you will too..."
Pastor Mark Batterson
"Sean Teis is circling broken homes - can't imagine anything closer to the heart of God"
"The fatherless are an increasing and overlooked part of our ministries today, and I believe that God could use Sean to make a difference in their lives."
TESTIMONIALS FROM FATHERLESS FAMILIES
Through God, we have had the privilege to work with fatherless families all over the United States. Here are a few of the testimonials that we have received!
"I would not be here today, or at least somewhat put together, if it were not for [this] fatherless ministry. What makes Sean’s ministry so unique is that he himself was a fatherless teenager and he knows the pain of growing up without a fatherly figure."
"At the time of my divorce, I was overwhelmed with fear, uncertainty, and loneliness. My children and I did not have God in our lives. [Sean] genuinely understands the hurt that comes along with not having a father available or capable to love you."
Grandparent Raising Grandchildren:
"It took a lot of pressure off me in the long run. I will never be able to thank Sean enough for his influence and impact on my grandsons' life."
"I can truly say that if it were not for the selfless work that Sean and Jackie did in my life I would not have graduated high school, I would not have gone to college. Through them I became a better person, a better Christian."
Single Mom in Las Vegas, NV:
"Coming to Las Vegas as single mom was not my plan. I was looking for a place of belongings after being disappointed numerous times. I have been praying and searching for true connections with single parents who share similar Godly values like myself but could not find anything that truly align with my walk with Christ until I came across "God is My Dad" platform on Facebook. At first I could not believe that there was actually such a group for people like me so I had to Google the location to ensure it was a real church. Funny right, but God had answered my prayers. Through the meetings and the "The Single Mom Journey" book by Sean Teis and his mom Connie as a guide, I realized I was really not alone. Connie's story was so relatable, inspiring and bible based, I felt the connection that I needed with her and the other women who attended the meetings. I realized that God is never late and he answers our prayers, God knew a platform like this was needed and he touched the hearts of Sean and his mom. I want to use this opportunity to thank Sean Teis, mom Connie, his beautiful family and all the wonderful single moms I have met for using their stories as testimonies. May God continue to guide and bless us as we are walking through our journey as single moms. Love you all"
Jenny Lane, Missions & Ladies Ministry Coordinator at a Partner Church in Astatula, FL
"First I want to say how thankful I am for your families ministry & the curriculum that God has led you to write. At the beginning of the school year at Open House night, a mom approached me about meeting with her young son and her niece & nephew once a week. In her words, “They need counseling “. She is a drug addict & I truly believe she was asking for help because she doesn’t want these kids to make the mistakes she has. So I agreed & then began praying that God would show me what to do . I work in the church office & I read all of our missionary letters.. so I was reading your letter and saw that you had a bookstore. Out of curiosity, I checked it out and saw The Fatherless Journey for boys & girls. I knew the Lord had answered my prayers of what to do. I meet with Alayah, Kaiden & Nick once a week . The 2 oldest have never met their dad , and Nick’s dad is in prison. At first I wondered About how the oldest boy would feel about meeting with me but after praying, me & my husband thought it would be ok since he doesn’t really have a mom or dad in his life. His mom is also a drug addict. We knew he needed a role model of a man & a woman. Our youth pastor also takes time with him. They have so much hurt in their lives, its just heartbreaking. But Praise God, there has been such a change in their lives .. all 3 have been saved , either in our church or christian school. Kaiden who was so angry and wouldn’t talk to me , now talks my ear off and is very honest & open about where he is at . Im thankful that your curriculum just shoots straight with them. Its direct & that is what they need. They still have so much they are dealing with , and life definitely isn’t easy for them. I downloaded “God is my Dad” app on my phone. Kaiden really enjoys the videos of different men giving their testimony. When he has had a really bad day, we will watch one and it helps him to see he is not alone. We have also given your devotional for single moms to our single moms, and they Love them. Sorry this is so long , but just wanted to share the blessing of your ministry and Thank you for it. Please keep these 3 precious children in your prayers. We continue to pray for you, your wife, children & ministry!"
