Our Services

What if I'm not a Christian?
We seek to provide a place for everyone to come to know and experience Jesus Christ for themselves in the power of the Holy Spirit. We believe that God loves everyone and that everyone is therefore important, therefor we’ve striven to create an atmosphere where everyone feels welcome and comfortable to worship God with us.

Wayne Smith

Pastor Smith felt his call into the ministry while praying underneath the bleachers at the United Pentecostal Church International’s General Conference held in Louisville, Kentucky, in 1974. He began a work, founding the Lighthouse and pastoring in Silver Grove, Kentucky, on May 8th of 1981. The Church grew and eventually had to move to Dayton, Kentucky. After many years in service to Dayton, The Dayton Gospel Lighthouse Church moved to Bellevue, Kentucky in January of 2002 and became The Apostolic Pentecostal Lighthouse. In 2007, the church changed it’s name to Lighthouse Ministries to reflect that we are more than just a church fellowship, but a group dedicated to serving the people through our various ministries. The Lighthouse extends it’s outreach to the majority of Campbell County, Kentucky; including cities such as Dayton, Bellevue, Newport, Southgate, and Silver Grove. Reverend Smith and his lovely wife, Joyce, have four lovely children. Three boys Jeremy, Steve and Jonathan, and one darling girl Hannah. He is also fondly called Pappaw by his many grandchildren. Pastor Smith is an Ordained Minister with the United Pentecostal Church International.
