I am the founder and pastor of Heaventrain. It has been my highest privilege and honor to serve as part of an amazing group of people. The children of Heaventrain are the most precious treasures in God's Kingdom and represent the hope for Cleveland's future. The volunteers of this organization give years of their life as servants that have fallen in love with our children. There is love that is seldom felt that is a mutual gift between the children and volunteers, it is a special connection that you must experience to understand. I have seen first hand barriers of race, economics, culture, and geography disappear and know first hand what it is to love and be loved by a community. I have spent over 30 years as part of this organization and am proud to be associated with a ministry that has created a legacy that will continue for many years. We have been blessed by many people that live, love, and give of themselves. While we have enjoyed a rich and exciting past I know that our best days are ahead as a new generation of leaders and children continue to pursue the vision of Lighthouse Inc.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Years of community connection. Much love and compassion of children and volunteers alike.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Bring more young people to leadership roles, better support of projects financially, and more indigenous leadership.
