Our Pastor

Pastor Tim and Stephanie VanDouser

Pastor Tim ad Stephanie came on staff at First Assembly of God in Millington on August 19,1989 as the Youth and Music Pastor, under the leadership of Senior Pastor Richard Findley. He held that position until August of 1997 when after Pastor Findley retired from First Assembly and the church voted him to become the next Senior Pastor. In 1999 the growth of the church moved us into a building project. In August of 2000 we entered our new sanctuary under the new name Lighthouse Fellowship Church. After a few years the Lord spoke to the church to begin a new Christian Academy, to go along with our preschool. In 2002 Lighthouse Christian Academy was started on 32 acres, of land, across the street from the church. Then a few years later the Lord spoke again to begin a Christian Bible College, and in 2016 we will celebrate our fourth graduating class of students. Pastor  Tim and Stephanie continue to preach the gospel believing that the CROSS IS THE ANSWER for the world. They believe that "PEOPLE MATTER" and that has been the vision of his ministry over these last 26 years. He received his ordination to preach in 1997, and received his Doctoral Degree in theology from North Carolina College of Theology in 2005. Stephanie is a registered nurse and has been for over 30 years. They have three sons, two of which serve on staff with him. A new daughter-in-law and a new GRANDSON who has stolen their hearts.
