With the blessing and advise of the then District Superintendent Alan Abbey they moved to Santa Rosa, CA on September 3rd, 2008 and began prophetic prayer walks and bible studies. The Jerry Farley family moved to Rohnert Park to assist our efforts to launch the work. We held our first service in our living room on October 18th, 2008. The Arcovio's personally had $80,000 saved that they planned to use to help secure their housing, however due to no NAM funding being available, it was necessary for them to begin living off these funds, as well as John Arcovio to return to traveling full-time on weekends.
By February 2009 we had over 40 contacts and felt to begin having services in a 1,200 sq foot office space located in Rohnert Park, CA. Our monthly overhead for this building was $3,000 per month. By July 2010 the stress of John Arcovio having to travel our every weekend for offerings to meet the families and church budget of $10,000+ each month began to take its toll on John and Andrea's health. They moved their main service to Tuesday evenings to accommodate John Arcovio's weekend travels. Refusing to be discouraged, they continued to teach bible studies and conduct open-air park concerts.
However, by August 2010 at they found themselves completely out of funds. John and Andrea prayed and felt led to move back to Stockton, CA to save on approximately 50% cost of living expenses and to commute weekly the 110 miles to Rohnert Park, CA to continue the small group meetings on Tuesday evenings. John and Andrea continued this model for the rest of 2010 and 2011 with the assistance of the Jerry Farley family.
In November of 2011 John Arcovio began to feel a stirring of the Spirit to move back onsite to Santa Rosa and re-launch Spirit Led Church with the main changes being: relaxed and relational church service structures, returning to a main Sunday 11 am service and by faith John Arcovio staying home to oversee and nurture this church 3 weekends per month. On August 8th 2012 the Arcovio's moved back on location to Santa Rosa, CA and successfully re-launched on February 24th with 30 Dream Team members and 50 first time visitors.
A successful Hard-Launch was accomplished on June 2nd, 2013 with 50 members and now cal call the Steele Lane Community Center Spirit Led Churches permanant home!
John Arcovio is presently seeking to minister out on Thursdays and Fridays flying home on Saturdays for Spirit Led Church's Sunday service. The Arcovio's are sincerely committed to their conviction that God is going to raise a great life-giving Apostolic Church in Santa Rosa, CA as well as many campus satellite works from Santa Rosa to San Fransisco along the 101 corridor!
