Meet Bob Lafferty, our Pastor, and former Associate & Youth Pastor.  He was born October 31, 1964 (this date reveals nothing about his character) in Wayne, Michigan.  He graduated from Lincoln High School in Ypsilanti and in 1983 he joined the Armed Services where he was stationed in Germany for five years.  Pastor Bob currently our full time Head Pastor and we couldn't be happier!

Bob's interests lie in the outdoors where he can be surrounded by the beauty of nature God has given us to enjoy.  He loves fishing, hunting and was been involved with the Boy Scouts in a leadership capacity for over 9 years where he can share his love of the outdoors, honor, and family.  Bob is a man who honors his word and shows others how to do the same.

 

Pastor Bob began working with the youth at the church in January 2005, and was ordained as Youth Pastor.  He and his wife, Tina, are highly motivated and committed to sharing God's love with young people and this is apparent in all they do.

If anyone can be noted as truly possessing a servant's heart, it is both Pastor Bob and his wife of more than 36 years, Tina.  They serve faithfully along side each other with true love and compassion for the people.  They are the proud parents of one son, Bobby, daughter in-love, Erica.  They have two grandchildren, Bobby Scott and Georgiamae.  Their tireless dedication and commitment to the body of Christ is worthy of recognition and honor.

Sister Tina is amazing!

Besides being the wife of Pastor Bob, and a mom with a full-time career, Sister Tina keeps us focused.  She is on task with many important "behind the scene" things in order to keep us organized.  The Belleville Lighthouse Church is blessed to have her serve in such an important leadership role!

She also sings with the Praise and Worship Team, and plays the keyboard too!

A quiet gentle spirit... with Fire in her eyes!

We love Sister Tina!

Brother Tim leads our Men's Ministry on the 2nd Tuesday and 4th Saturday of each month.  His other responsibilities include Audio / Video where he manages the church sound booth, security system and classroom cameras. 

For many years, Tim and his wife Terri taught classes for "Life's Healing Choices" by Pastor Rick Warren.  Having gone through struggles of hurt and pain, they felt led to help others work through their own struggles.

He loves spending time with his wife, children and grandchildren when he isn't on duty at the church.

Erica came to our church as a young teen and stayed with us ever since.  She is the daughter in love of Pastor Bob and Tina, wife of Bobby, and mother to Bobby Scott and Georgiamae.  The ladies at the Bellevile Lighthouse Church are excited to have Erica lead them in their journey to become "Titus 2 women."  They hold to a vision that they will help train up other women in the ways of Christ.  

When Erica isn’t leading the Women's Ministry she has many gifts and talents including her beautiful voice which she uses to honor God when she sings on the Praise and Worship Team. 




Praise & Worship Leader

Debbie Turner

Debbie came to our church as a God Send during a time of transition.  She has the talent of a Psalmist and the gift of a beautiful voice.  She plays the keyboard effortlessly as God has her lead all of us in Sunday and Wednesday Praise and Worship at the Belleville Lighthouse Church.

When Debbie isn’t leading Praise & Worship in church or spending time in her prayer room, she loves to spend time with her husband and visit her son who lives afar. She is also a willing vessel to help anyone in need as God calls her!  From baking for new mothers, those who are sick, praying for others, and helping with church finances, she truly embodies the verse:
 
Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, "Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?" And I said, "Here am I. Send me!" Isaiah 6:8 NLT
