OUR STAFF

Dan Cooper

Lead Pastor

Dan attended Christ for the Nations, where he met Connie in 1976, got married a year later, and left immediately for England to establish a Bible School with a former professor.

 

40 years later, he has a Bachelors in Communications and much-needed experience in and out of church. He is pursuing his dream: leading an amazing group of loving, dedicated, genuine, and accepting people in a fantastic and growing community as well as running a critically acclaimed coffee bar and cafe.

He's been a missionary, a worship leader, a youth pastor, a children's pastor, and ministry administrator. One thing he loves is sharing truth: truth about God, the people He made, and truth about the world around us. He has served full-time at The Lighthouse since 2000.

"Connie and I have two married children, Paul and Rachel, and two grandchildren. They have taught me a lot about life and about God's love for us. I've spiritually "adopted" many others as well. Some have moved on, and others have settled here."
