Lighthouse Christian Ministries is a key player in changing lives in the Galveston Bay Area. Through a community of volunteers Lighthouse is able to offer programs for short-term financial assistance, food insecurity setbacks, basic health /dental care, and educational opportunities (GED program, Community College entrance, Parenting Classes, etc). Each year Lighthouse holds a community fundraiser in which the increasing accomplishments are highlighted as well as bringing attention to areas in need of future volunteers and community involvement. The leadership team at Lighthouse is dedicated to leading clients, as well as staff, in following Christ through faith and accountability partners. This is an organization based on teaching low-income, disadvantaged individuals and families how to be more self sufficient while at the same time giving back once your circumstances improve.

I am working with Lighthouse Christian Ministries to help set up a community garden to provide food and education to the area of Bacliff. The organization is well run by people who love and serve their community. They are dedicated to the improvement of people's lives by helping them temporarily with basic needs and long term with education, job placement, spiritual guidance and mentoring. When we need materials or volunteers for the garden, the staff at Lighthouse Christian Ministries is quick to respond. It is not an exaggeration to say they know everyone in the area and they give us a name to help us. I also volunteer at the food distribution they organize sponsored by the Houston Food Bank. I pull one of the wagons around helping individuals get their generous supply of fresh meat and produce. The food allocation is done with such respect and love for the receiving families that I feel I am at a family reunion. I recently helped with Lighthouse Christian Ministries' version of vacation bible school which lasted every week day in July. Daily, close to 100 children were fed physically and spiritually with songs, games, talks, and crafts. The kids painted garden signs for us to identify produce in the garden beds and made a garden banner with their hand prints as leaves on a tree. Again, the children were loved and cared for by people who were like family. I love working with this organization because their clients are not just numbers but neighbors who are loved and served as if Christ were among them.

I have been volunteering at LCM for several years, and the work I've been a part of as well as what I've observed going on around me is phenomenal. I've seen the community being impacted in numerous positive ways. It's my belief that the greatest reason for LCM's success is that God is in the midst of all that is being done there. You feel His presence when you enter the building, and you continue to see Him as you encounter the staff. I feel very blessed to be a part of LCM's volunteer team.

Hi my name is Tisha Day and LCM is a great organization that has been a true blessing to me and my family. They have enabled us to go to school without the pressure of having to drop out or not be able to graduate. The staff are very supportive and caring when it comes to our needs. I don't know where would we be if it were not for LCM. They will help you in anyway possible according to your needs. We have a peace of mind knowing that the LCM team has our back in succeeding our life's goals. We are truly grateful for LCM. God bless.

LCM is an organization I tell people about all the time. Where the rubber hits the road, they are there to help those in need. We've seen countless people helped by their ministry as well as, heard stories about their work in the community.

We've personally helped out @ their 2nd Saturday celebration & different school drives. We donate to them & know that our donation is going to help those in need.

I have had the opportunity to work with Lighthouse Christian Ministries for almost 2 years and am amazed at the teamwork, commitment and passion they all have for their ministry and the clients they serve. It all shines through into the community and the Galveston County Food Bank is blessed to work with them in multiple capacities. We are also appreciative that Erika Steele & her team have opened many doors and helped strengthen our relationship with various churches and individuals as well. We are blessed to have them in the community for their forward thinking & desire to always go above and beyond to those in need.

I have had the privilege of being involved with Lighthouse for the last 15+ years. In the beginning, our church would serve LCM with food drives a few times a year. As I got closer to LCM, I began to see how the mission to serve their neighbors in need was motivated by a love for God and a love for people.
I think their name perfectly exemplifies who they are--a light pointing those who are tossed about by the struggles of life to the very solid foundation of Jesus Christ. The staff and volunteers treat every person with value, respect and love. I love LCM's commitment to their community--to meet the immediate needs of food, shelter, clothing as well as to encourage those who can to develop through the GED and scholarship programs. Many non-profits begin to slip away from their original mission but LCM has stayed true and focused and effective!! I am so glad to be able to witness first hand their impact in our area!
