I have served as a volunteer, board member and advisor since the inception of Heavan Train and subsequently Lighthouse, Inc. I have watched it grow from a bus ministry, to a church on wheels in a book mobile, to a special bus the reaches out to community in the central city of Cleveland, Ohio. It has fed the people of community; it has brought hope to the community and has done so for over 30 years. It is currently involved in doing the same every week as well as working with the school system in a variety of needed programs. I am no longer in the Cleveland area but have felt blessed that I could bring a group fo 13 people from the real rural areas of Maine to volunteer for a day on this Heaven Train. After two years it is still impacting their lives. Pastor Andy Anderson

My Mother, Nellie Altic volunteered for Lighthouse ministries and Heaven train. She made over 100 quilts for them and donated busloads of gently used clothing (one busload a year) through her church. She told me all about heaven train. I can't think of a better organization helping the needy people of Cleveland. Lois Wilson

I have known the Director of Lighthouse, Andy Batten since 2009, as a fellow member of the Neighborhood Leadership Program at Cleveland State University. Andy had been nominated for the program because of his demonstrated passion, commitment and integrity. Leadership is critical for the success and vision of any organization. I believe that Andy Batten demonstrates the leadership and vision that will propel Lighthouse forward as it continues to reach and touch the lives of youth and families in the Greater Cleveland area...and beyond.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Youth outreach successfully helping young people become visibly more confident, with increased evidence of self-esteem, self-respect and respect for others.

Though my interactions with Lighthouse Inc., has been brief I have been impressed with their professionalism and capacity to empower those that they serve. Andy and his team have incredible dreams and have the gifts to reach those goals. I have been both encouraged and inspired to share with others in my own community what Lighthouse, Inc. has been accomplishing. Lighthouse Inc., is a wonderful example of what local community group should be doing!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

By participating in a workshop led by Andy and one of his board members. The way that this non-profit collects data and plan has changed the way I empirically collect information. This has then helped the organization I work to ask better questions, make better decisions and empower our community.

Lighthouse has been a beacon in a dark world. Throughout the years I have seen them reach out to all who have a need. They have impacted their community by providing, encouraging, teaching and nurturing those around them. They bring dignity and love to everyone, regardless of race or economic status, and therefore making it possible for people to aim higher.

The Great!

I've watched Heaventrain grow throughout the years. After more than 30 years, many ministries and/or nonprofit organizations have sold their integrity to the highest bidder and get caught up in the world's view. This has not happened with Heaventrain.

Year after year, the people have been
the heart of this ministry. The needs of those people, both physical and spiritual, are at the very center of what this ministry is about. The people Heaventrain serves are those who many would say aren't worth the effort. But they are the lifeblood of the leaders of Heaventrain.

First Pastor Phil and now Pastor Andy bring to the world God's love in action. Thank you all for you service to mankind and for your obedience to our Heavenly Father.

I have always lived out of State and being hands on was never an option but I follow things and hear the stories and in awww I become. The time and effort, dedication the people put in is amazing. Over the years they have touched so many lives. I love seeing the updates and stories about what is going on. I think they are just amazing and even though I have never needed their services, my life has been changed and helped because of their services.

I was around when the beginning of this ministry was birthed. It's a vital part of the community. People in need come to rely on the help recieved from Heaventrain and it's outreach ministry. I have witnessed the changed lives of people that have learned of God's through this outreach. It's also a message of encouragement to know people care and are wiling to give their time to minister and meet the needs of others.

I played basketball for Lighthouse and it was a great experience! They provided me and my teamates with meals and new uniforms including warm-ups. But the most important thing was the church aspect of the program. They showed me that it wasn't all about basketball, and focused more on how important it was to have a relationship with God and to me that was the most important of it all.
