Lighthouse Church Leaps Forward in New Location

It’s the firstTLC310 anniversary of The Lighthouse Church formed by Pastors Eric Gamero and Johnie Butler just 12 months ago. The fledging church, crammed into a couple of hotel meeting rooms in Miramar until this week, has attracted a steadily growing congregation that was split into several services by necessity. Today, along with the clocks leaping forward an hour, TLC took a huge step forward in a new facility, easily 10 times bigger than the modest hotel space that gave birth to the church. Now meeting at Lakeside Elementary School just north of Pines Blvd. and east of I-75, the church filled over 325 seats to capacity at the new 11:00 AM service. The seed planted a year ago has found new life in fertile ground after months of searching for a suitable facility.

As Pastor Gamero reminded the congregation, real success is not measured in worldly gains – yes, the steady growth and new location are testaments to the work being done and the need being answered. Success he said,  instead is measured by faithfulness. In spite of numerous hurdles along the way, TLC has remained steadfast through multiple challenges and finally found a new home, closing the chapter of its first year, and brilliantly opening up a new one as it moves forward. tlc310a

Seeded by a handful of transplants from Eric and Johnie’s previous church where they served effectively in supporting pastoral roles, TLC has embraced many dozens of new members in west Miramar and Pines.

Worship director Steve Villafane leads a nine-piece, upbeat worship band, young in age but mature in presentation, singing a wide selection of joyful, contemporary songs. In honor of the one year anniversary, the group presented church goers with a CD of music from the past year.
