Sabbatical Stays at My Father’s House

Good Lord willing we believe My Father’s House will be reopening soon on the beautiful East Atlantic coast of Florida. This is a time for you to be alone with the Lord, free from distractions.

Take encouraging and refreshing walks with the Lord along the extraordinary coastline that He has created for you. We encourage you to bring your modest casual cool clothing, your Bible, a journal or note pad, and a couple good ink pens — and most importantly your heart and ears wide open to your Holy Father God.

Get ready to hear His voice and experience His love for you!

You are also welcome to join Pastors & Psalmists Gary and Rhonda Petzoldt of Lilyband for times of worship and prayer.

Healthy Eating

Not only is the Holy Father offering you a spiritual renewal — He is offering you a rejuvenation for your body! If you would like, we offer our guests fresh organic juicing to help renew, heal and revive your body for His service during your stay…Psalm 103. The meals are either prepared here in our kitchen at the house, or brought in from the local health food store deli, or we can cater depending on the size of the group.

Or you can prepare your own healthy meals from the already supplied kitchen or a have a healthy fast and just enjoy the peaceful solitude with the Lord!

Our menu is organic, pure, non-GMO, and all natural foods with various fresh organic fruits, organic veggies, organic salads, organic meats and pure fish or shrimp. We also have wonderful organic non-decaf coffees and teas if you like.

Other special diet requests may be made well in advance by calling and speaking with us or our assistant.

Guest Guidelines – Holy Environment

This is a wonderful opportunity for you to do as Yeshua did to go away and be alone with the Holy Father.

Your time spent here with God is very valuable. To help benefit your time in the most effective way we have a few Biblical My Father’s House guidelines that are necessary — and we believe when you keep these it will greatly enhance your stay.

There is no need to bring any media resources as we already have a good trust worthy library of resources available for you to use if Holy Spirit leads you that way. It may be much more beneficial for you to just get in the Holy Word and prayer, and to be still and listen to His voice by the Holy Spirit.

You can bring a laptop if needed as we do have internet wifi. However, we strongly encourage you to only use the internet as a Bible study tool and not for social media, Facebook or unnecessary business. Don’t miss your focal point of being here —  a precious appointed time with Holy Father and Jesus. Don’t let anyone nor anything distract you from Him.

There is grace for the laptop or mobile phone if you really do need to use it. We certainly understand you may need to attend lightly to business or lovingly to your spouse and family while you’re here.

Simply put — please highly value your time and the protected holy environment here with the Father who loves you so very much and wants your full attention.

New age practices of any kind — such as yoga, are strictly forbidden in the homes on any Ministry grounds and our beach front.

No smoking or vaping inside homes or on grounds. No alcoholic beverages of any kind and no pets.

Modest Apparel Guidelines

An important requirement is that at all times modest apparel is to be worn while staying here, even though your Sabbatical is located on the beach, we are still obeying the Word of God by setting an example of Christlike modest apparel for men, women and children.

If shorts, skirts or pants are worn please make sure they are below the knee and loose fitting. We do request that no skin-tight jeans or spandex exercise pants is worn, and if they are please use a long flowing top to cover them to the knees. Thank you.

This is Sabbatical time with Jesus — not a flesh show and worldly Florida beach vacation. Therefore, please do not wear swimsuits for your beach and sun time. We do understand you will want to spend time in the sun (Son) with the Father while you are here — moderate amounts of sunshine is encouraged and is very healthy. You will enjoy your stay all the more in honoring these helpful Sabbatical guidelines.

Why Modesty Is Important

Biblical modesty honors and protects one another as Brother’s and Sister’s in Christ. Having Christlike modesty in a prayer and worship environment is very needed so that we are not a distraction in drawing unneeded attention to one’s self.

When we keep these commands of His Word we are assuring that we do not give an open door to the enemy or the fleshly (carnal) thinking that could cause wrong thoughts leading to sin. Thank you.

1Tim 2:9-10 9. In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with modesty and sobriety; not with braided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; 10) But which becomes women professing godliness with good works.

Testimonials of My Father’s House Guests

I was at My Father’s House last weekend…..It completely changed my life, and the way I see the Father….I thought that I knew that God loved me…I thought I knew that He was always present….But He has revealed His amazing love for me in many awe inspiring ways during my stay at My Father’s House and it made me realize I didn’t really know what I thought I knew…He met me in a powerful way and I can never go back to the way I was…..

Rhonda and Gary were very welcoming, they greeted me when I got there, and Rhonda showed me around before a very healthy lunch. They were VERY gracious hosts! I was not used to the love that they poured out. Rhonda’s cooking was amazing, I’ve decided to go wholesome and healthy in my diet habits. The worship that came out of their living room was without words…the love they poured out to the Father just melted me to tears…..It gave me a renewed and ever increasing determination to live JUST for Him…. The love they poured out to one another was also an awesome testimony and witness to the love and the life-changing power of our Creator…

“Swimming” in the Ocean of His love has increased my love for Him, and my fire and passion for God has returned….my vision for ministry that He has given me years ago has also returned…The Father has even given me a new gift! I love to sing and play music on my keyboard and it’s always been my desire to worship Him using a stringed instrument. I’ve tried to learn guitar several times, but it didn’t stick. During my stay this past weekend, He has enabled me to learn and has given me a desire to use the autoharp….I cannot wait to begin!
I am so ready for new opportunities and new beginnings and He has spoken both into my heart…And I know that it is just the beginning…..

The sunrises I watched rise over the ocean each morning that I was there were also without words, an awesome display of the Father’s love for me… And He has also given me some special little gifts in the many sea shells I collected when walking the beach… He met me at My Father’s House in a very personal, and powerful way….He has forever changed my life…EVERY believer NEEDS to have an experience like this…..and let it not be just an experience but a way of LIFE! All glory be to Him who sits on the throne, and unto the Lamb!! – Elisheva B

What Is The Cost Of A Sabbatical Stay & What Airports We Can Pick You Up From

My Father’s House is funded by love offering donations from our guests and monthly supporters of Jesus Generation. We do ask you to prayerfully give a donation of whatever amount the Lord lays on you or your groups heart to give for your stay. It is greatly appreciated as it helps to cover our operating expenses and helps others who can not give to have a stay.

If you truly believe the Lord wants you to come to My Father’s House, but you do not have adequate funds to donate for your stay or to purchase a flight ticket, then please contact us and we will take your situation to the board for review and see if we can help financially to cover your stay.

If you need to fly in we can pick you or your group up at Orlando Florida International Airport (MCO), Daytona Beach International Airport (DAB), or Sanford/Orlando Airport (SFB).

Are you ready to get away from it all and be alone with Jesus?
