Lighthouse for Jesus was started in October 1996 in Homestead, Fl area by the founder, the late Johnie L. & Dorothy F. Doctor. In the year of 2000, Pastor Walter Horn was chosen to be the Assistant Pastor. TLF is a place where the Mind, Body. And Spirit/Soul of a person can come rest in the Presence of God, Growth, and Spiritual cleansing through the washing of the Word. After 23 years of faithful service to both God and the community, in 2019 Pastor Doctor transitioned to his place in Glory. The mantle was then passed to his son and daughter in ministry entrusting them to move the vision forward. While many identify this as a changing of the guard, Pastor Walter & Elect Lady Charlotte D. Horn affectionately call this the continuation of a Watchman, “Steppin’ Out-To-Step Up, Moving From Membership To Ministry.”
