Welcome to the Christian Church that Welcomes Everyone
Searchlight Fellowship is an accepting community church that welcomes everyone, with fellowships in the San Jose areas. Our church is made up of a main Christian service meeting in Saratoga, as well as satellite home fellowships for men and women, meeting in San Francisco, East Bay and San Jose.
Every Sunday, Searchlight Fellowship holds modern church services at the Saratoga Community Center in Saratoga, convenient for everyone in the San Jose area. These services include sermons from the bible, worship, prayer and an emphasis on growing spiritually in Christ.
We also offer additional volunteer opportunities to get involved with specialized programs and events, such as our Ambassador Programs which emphasize learning and serving. Additionally, Searchlight Fellowship’s Senior Pastor, Nancy Berwid, teaches and hosts The Dating Workshop in the San Francisco bay/San Jose area. These weekend dating seminars usually have around 50 young men and women who come to learn how to find lasting love in relationships.
Our History and Founders
Our Senior Pastor, Nancy Berwid, established the church in 1991. Her focus has always been about growth … from the church’s original focus on gang ministry to the personal growth she experienced as the ministry evolved to what it is today: a church that values searching for healing and growth with Christ in safe relationships.
Our Associate Pastor, Patty Vasquez, has been a member of Searchlight since the beginning. She is a graduate of our Ambassador program and, like Nancy, is passionate about cultivating growth and seeking truth.
