DeuS is working with the Lighthouse Church of Costa Mesa. They are doing some incredible work with the local community of Costa Mesa. They exemplify a church that lives out their Faith.
In the mid 1940′s a group of devout ladies began meeting at their homes for Bible Study. From that group came the Costa Mesa Church of the Nazarene. In 1948 a building was secured and moved to its permanent location at Anaheim Ave and Plumer St.
After the existing renovation what started as a small group of ladies meeting at their houses for bible studies, came the Church of the Nazarene. Over the Years 1,000′s have been drawn to the Church of the Nazarene that continues to shine 64 years later and growing.
Men like Pastors Clive Williams, Eldon Cobal, Chuck James, Don Thurman, Drew Boucke, Doyle Henderson, Dale Fitch, and currently Phil Eyskens and others have lead a determined group of believers to keep the Light of Jesus Christ shinning in Costa Mesa Church of the Nazarene.
In 2000 the Church was renamed to The Lighthouse Church of the Nazarene.
Lighthouse Outreach Ministries was created By Pastor Dale Finch in 2002. He saw a great need with in the city and sought to provide a place for people to come and have a cup coffee, pastry, and few minutes away from the streets.
As the numbers grew larger, a charitable organization was formed and and expand not only to feed to but clothing and hot showers. Now the light shines out to thousands every month.
Today the Church and its outreach ministry is one of the largest providers of ministry to the needy in the area.
