Have you ever read the book of Acts chapter 1 in the bible? It describes the early church.. That description looks nothing like what most of us experience today when we "go to church". Want to get a glimpse of a church without any walls?, without any weekly collections? That is so dangerous that local villages & towns threaten to arrest Pastor Jim for sharing "the Word of God" & feeding the poor? Where gang leaders literally offer money to have Pastor killed because his team are showing teens with the word of God to leave that lifestyle & now they follow Jesus (his jeep has a bullet hole to prove it), a ministry so dangerous that the very gates of Hell can not stand against it. Pray and ask God if He wants you to join the Lighthouse Mission as they share the gospel of Jesus & feed the poor every day & if He wants you financially supporting it - a ministry that is making a huge dent in the Devils kingdom every day here in Long Island. Listen to a short clip someone posted of pastor Craig share the gospel of Jesus at Saturdays outreach.

People have been lined up for hours before we even start today to hear the Word of God and receive food at a Lighthouse Mission street outreach in Patchogue today. When was the last time you saw people lining up hours early to get inside church? God has been doing such amazing work during all of the outreaches. People are giving themselves to Jesus like I have never seen before. As many of you know, I have ministered in churches and have pastored churches for many years but I have never seen so many people make a decision to follow Jesus inside a church as I do outside the church during Lighthouse Mission street outreaches. God is on the move! Come and see for yourself. These are exciting times to be a follower of Jesus. - Pastor Jim
What does a Lighthouse Mission street outreach look like in the winter? What can you expect to see? Cold & hungry people- many elderly many just children. The gospel of Jesus is shared in both Word & deed. Coats are put onto freezing people & food generously offered. It's the kingdom of God on the move each day right here on Long Island. Would you consider supporting us?
Pastor Mike and Blaise are teaching some of our teens about the Armor of God using a sword made of cardboard & duct tape. For many of these teens life can be really hard. Gangs, drugs, violence, poverty are just a part of their day. Lighthouse gives these amazing teens the biblical weapons found in the bible to overcome their difficult lives- so many are giving their lives to Jesus. Thank you to those who invest in Lighthouse Mission to make programs like this possible. You are storing your treasure in heaven!
Would you believe that God is reaching more then 145 children & teens each week through our youth programs. We are seeing lives changed. Kids quitting gangs, doing well in school, but best of all learning about Jesus. Want to get involved, roll up your sleeves and become the hands of Jesus? We need your time, talents & treasure.
