Our Youth Pastor Ryan and his wife Tonya have served Lighthouse as Youth Pastor for over 10 years. They have a daughter, Addison who serves on our sign team and helps with Vacation Bible School.
When asked about what serving youth means, Pastor Ryan has this to say: “Serving young people is a passion given from heaven. We learn as much from them as they do from us. To say it’s an honor to serve as Youth Pastors at Lighthouse Church would be an understatement. When you follow after God's own heart you will find loving people, especially young people, will not only encourage and develop them, but will teach you a lot about what God's love looks like.”
Pastor Ryan and Sis. Tonya’s vision for our young people falls in line with the same vision set over 60 years ago by Bishop G.D Peters, carried on by Bishop David Peters and the leadership today. We desire for souls to be reached and for our young people to play a big role in this vision. We desire for our young people to develop a relationship and love with Jesus that is everlasting, to understand the salvation plan set forth by God, to experience for themselves, and share with others.
