Children’s Ministry Vision

Proverbs 22:6 – “Train up a child in the way he should go. And when he is old he will not depart from it.”

Our Children’s Ministry Exists to:

S hare Christ with the children of our community.
T eam them with other believers.
A dvance them in their spiritual maturity.
R ecognize their spiritual gifts.
S urrender their lives to God.

Our children are shining STARS, which the Lord has made. For God has a plan for each one of their lives.

Our Sunday school teachers consist of a committed group of teachers who rotate monthly and meet regularly for prayer and training. Our children are cared for and our teachers pray for the children as well. Bible memorization is encouraged.


For the following groups, the children stay in service for worship then are dismissed after worship to go to their individual classes.




We also have Awards Sunday (quarterly) for the Primaries and Middlers that receive little gifts for the following categories:

•  Bring Your Bible
•  Memorize Your Scripture
•  Faithful Tither
•  Best Helper
•  Ministering to A Friend

Women’s Ministry Vision

Lighthouse Tabernacle’s Women’s Ministry is called the Joy Ministry. In a world where joy is so misunderstood, we feel that joy is something we can live daily, in spite of our circumstances and past experiences. Our desire is to bring the women to a place where they can feel contentment ‘in the journey,’ as we provide a safe envornment in our home meetings, usually held monthly in homes across Staten Island.

We explore ‘root issues’ from our upbringing and expose the schemes of the ‘enemy of our souls’ through biblical teachings. We emphasize forgiveness and moving forward in our Christian growth and development. In our meetings we encourage interaction through sharing and asking questions and also provide a time of fellowship and refreshments!

Personal ministry is provided from our committed team of leaders, who gather weekly for prayer and training. Our goal is to see women set free from the mental and spiritual bondage brought on from the past, and even present circumstances, in order to be equipped to walk through life’s journey with strength, ultimately strengthening and encouraging others along the way.

That is true ‘joy!’ Having the victory through our Lord,

Jesus Christ.

Men’s Ministry Vision


Our goal is to build strong relationships among the men, to teach men to teach men to teach men thus fulfilling the great commission as well as strengthen them in their walk with Jesus Christ, as they lead their families with Him. In each meeting, we try to get as many men as possible to share and encourage them to step out and serve God.
