Lighthouse Tabernacle Apostolic 3rd Anniversary
The promise of increase depth
It has been said that success is a journey.
For Pastor Stephen Hogan and his fledgling congregation at the Lighthouse Tabernacle Apostolic the journey started three years ago, and with every step forward the path to success is illuminated even brighter.
“As we approach our third year in ministry it is evident that the Lord’s hand and blessing has been upon our ministry. This year our theme is “increase depths” and surely there has been an increase in our ministry,” he states.
One of the stated missions of the church is to hold itself as “a beacon of light to all Montrealers.”
For the last three years the officers and members of Lighthouse Tabernacle Apostolic can claim success here and beyond.
Pastor Hogan paints an encouraging picture:
“In 2016 we gave out more food baskets than ever, averaged higher attendance in all our services and saw many people changed by the power of God. Not only that, but we saw an increase in our missions department as two daughter churches were started, one in Kenya (Lighthouse Kenya) and one in Jamaica (Lighthouse Restoration).”
On Friday, May 5, to Sunday, May 7, the church celebrates its third anniversary with a pastoral appreciation weekend featuring messages from anointed men of God, Bishop Dr. Terrence Jenkins, Rev. Paul Campbell, and Rev. Reza Deghani together with Pastor Stephen Hogan at the church, 5020 Rue de Salaberry, in the St. Laurent borough.
They are inviting Montreal’s community of faith to “come and experience a blessing and a life-changing experience.”
Join them in this momentous moment. Info.: (514) 705-2256.
