What We Do
We 'Do Justly. Love Mercy. Walk Humbly' Micah 6:8
We have joined forces with Pastor Jamie Corcoran at Lighthouse Church. We initially partnered with him as they began their first church plant. We got here ten months in and rolled up our sleeves to fill in any gaps. What we discovered was a vision beyond one church plant, but to inspire the whole nation to find their extra-ordinary purpose in Christ. We find ourselves involved locally, nationally, and internationally.
On a local level, Patrick is a part of the Pastoral Team. Our roles are wide and deep including teaching, leading, and caring for those in Blanchardstown and Navan. Honestly, we do whatever it takes to help these churches to grow and be vibrant in the community. We are honored to be one of the “team” with a united purpose to see the Irish know God through faith in Jesus.
Nationally, we partner with three ministries by being readily available and supportive in all their endeavors. We help build new church plants through our partnership with ARC. We volunteer in their conferences and workshops. We are also involved with CCI. We help in their annual conference, on their Care Team, and leadership training. Further Faster is a ministry we support here so we can encourage church growth and relevance in the existing Irish Churches.
We have also been able to participate with Mission Teams that come from the USA to help with us here at Lighthouse Church. We have worked in the community cleaning, painting, and doing outreaches. We especially love hosting Dr. Michael Ferris when he comes with his potter’s wheel and speaks on broken lives being restored through the healing hands of God. We have traveled all over Ireland, Uk, and further into Europe to help him spread this powerful visual message through the medium of the arts. Lastly, we have been able to put together teams from our church so they can be a part of mission’s in Brazil and South Africa.
