Lighthouse Tabernacle has a young and exciting history!

Lighthouse began with a passion to reach the community of West Hartford, CT with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. With just a handful of people, a Bible study would begin in November 2011 in the living room of Pastor and Sis. Ford’s home.

Just one year later, the Bible Study would outgrow their home and move to the Elmwood Community Center on New Britain Avenue. A growing group of believers would soon be established and in May 2013 through much prayer and counsel, a decision was made to become a church.

In September 2013, Pastor and Sis. Ford together with a group of people unified to reach the world with the love of Jesus would launch the birth of a new church: Lighthouse Tabernacle.



Our MISSION here at Lighthouse Tabernacle is to LOVE Jesus, GROW your Faith in Jesus, and SHINE the Light of Jesus! We take LOVE, GROW, SHINE seriously here and encourage you to adopt it as your personal mission. At Lighthouse, we are committed to being a spiritually and emotionally healthy church. The closer we get to Jesus, the healthier we become.



Our VISION is to evangelize West Hartford, New England, and beyond with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. To make disciples of Jesus Christ of all nations and ethnicities, who impact their world with the hope, grace, love and truth of the Gospel beginning right at home. The light that shines the farthest, shines the brightest at home.
