LIGHTHOUSE MISSION CENTER HISTORY
In 1998, the Trinity Pentecostal Lighthouse Church started a
Mission Outreach within a couple small rooms above the church
filling them with food and clothing to help those in need. Over the
next two years the outreach grew and we were serving over five
In 2000, we were blessed with three buildings throughout the
community but, it became more difficult to manage and assist
families due to the distance in the location of the buildings. But, the
number of people were still increasing and we needed more space in
one location. In January 2001, Bro. Darrell Lowe shared with the
church of fifty-three members a vision God had show him of a
building within fifty yards of the church and said to proclaim it and it
would be ours to do Gods work .
We stepped out on faith believing God to meet every need
because we had no money and knowing that we serve a big God
and through him all things are possible. On September 11, 2001 God
blessed us with a six thousand square foot building and that is
when the Lighthouse Mission Center was established. The Center
continues assisting families with food boxes, clothing, daily
hygiene, cleaning supplies and furniture. In 2002, We were blessed
to start a Distribution Center assisting other churches,
organizations, schools and other agencies in the tri-state area that
would allow them to help feed and clothe families in their community
that was unable to come to the Center.
On November 25, 2003 God blessed us to open a Soup Kitchen
and Dining Room to serve families hot meals and reach out to the
children and their famiies by providing games, carnival and puppet
ministries. January of 2004 we are blessed to take care packages to
the Jail Ministry with Christian Pamphlets and bibles each month.
In August 2004, we were blessed to open a free Medical Clinic to
assist those with medical and dental needs that are unable to
financially provide themselves with the means to pay for these
services. This has been such a blessing for our community and the
needs are very great in our area. In January of 2005 the ministry was
blessed to open Lifeline a Christian Faith-Based program for those
and their families that are facing life controlling issues such as drug
, alcohol , anger, gambling ETC..
Our Center and Clinic is 501-C 3 non-profit organization and is
staffed by volunteer board members and staff,with willing hearts to
serve others. The Mission Center and Clinic has been blessed with
many services to reach out and meet the needs in our community
and to show them Gods love and compassion by meeting their
physical needs then being able to share the good news of Christ.
This work wouldn’t be possible without our partners in this
ministry. We have been blessed with churches and organization
throughout the United States that have come to work at the mission
and renovate our facility.
