Community is a key foundation of Lighthouse for Life. Not only do we rely on our community partnerships, but we want to do all we can to help our communities grow in their understanding of Human Trafficking and the role they can have against it.
Throughout the year, we host a variety of both fund-raising and awareness events that we would love for you to join. Many of our events are put on by Lighthouse for Life, however, at times we partner with others as well. If you have an event you’d like us to be a guest, please contact us!

Living Real Magazine was created by Melanie Shull almost 10 years ago to provide a platform for real people to proclaim God’s faithfulness and greatness as they grow up in their faith through real life experiences.
Lighthouse for Life is honored to partner with Living Real Magazine in this one day conference.
Our CEO, Jen Thompson, will be one of the featured speakers as will Misty Burton, who operates one of our local business partners, Tenfold Collective.
Curious about the theme of "What's Your Lemonade Stand?" - well the idea comes from the reality that each one of us have unique gifts, passions, abilities, personalities and experiences the Lord wants to use in our own spheres of influence as we express our faith in Him. Throughout the day you'll hear the original conversation where the Lemonade Stand idea was first expressed as well as a real life example of how real people have lived it out.
