The Lighthouse Foundation Inc. is an organization associated with the progressive Primitive Baptist Church whose main purpose is to broadcast the gospel through any means possible.
It was originally founded to produce a television program in 1973, which was aired on WJCL-TV for several years in Savannah, Ga.
In 1983, a group, which included ministers and lay-people, met to discuss reactivating the Lighthouse Ministry and formed the Lighthouse Radio Bible Study and began production of weekly half-hour Bible teaching programs.
Elder Loren Wilson was the first producer/speaker. After a year, he gave up the work and Elder Arthur DeVane became the producer/speaker and served for 11 years. Elder David Summerford succeeded Elder DeVane and served through January 2006. In February 2006, Elder Scott Riner succeeded Elder Summerford.
Since 1983, 1,200+ programs have been produced. The program is currently being broadcast on three domestic stations, one international station and over its website on the internet.
In addition to the ongoing weekly broadcast, the Lighthouse Foundation was instrumental in the founding of our sister organization, the Donetsk Ministry, an outreach to the Ukraine region of the former Soviet Union. We have also had various efforts to supply Bibles and teaching materials to other locations around the world.
We are very thankful for the association we have with The Lighthouse Singers and for their participation in Gospel Sings, Song Fest, fund raisers and responding to request by churches to sing on special occasions. We pray that this special relationship we have with The Lighthouse Singers will grow and glorify God and greatly benefit all of us in our worship of Him in music and song.
It is our hope and prayer that God will continue to use this work to His glory and edifying of His people whenever and wherever they hear these broadcasts.
