Our Purpose & Mission

God is my Dad is a resource for fatherless teens and adults to encourage them to overcome fatherlessness, receive encouragement, and get guidance on their journey.  Our goal is to help you understand that you are not alone and give you the tools to succeed on your fatherless journey!

Pastor Sean Teis


When Sean was around 10 months old his father left and never returned again.  This is when he started what he called “the fatherless journey”.  Sean has a passion to see the fatherless set free through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and has been pursuing this calling for the past 9+ years.  In addition to running Life Factors Sean also serves as a Youth Pastor.  Sean is happily married to Jackie and they have three awesome children: Malachi, Titus and Blaire.  

Jackie Teis


Jackie grew up in a Pastor’s home and was blessed to have a great father, but she has a desire to see fatherless individuals reached for the glory of God.  Jackie and Sean are partners in this ministry and Sean admits that he would be a mess without Jackie in his life!  It would take hours to list out all of the ways Jackie is involved and helps Sean in the ministry!
