Welcome to Lighthouse Medical Missions
In 1998 the first Lighthouse team went to The Gambia, Western Africa. The needs of the people were clear immediately, but their warmth and appreciation were evident as well. This made an impact on our hearts and our relationships with the African people has kept us coming back.
Since then, Lighthouse Medical Missions, working with the Door Christian Fellowship in Africa, has organized medical missions to Sierra Leone, Liberia, Burundi, The Democratic Republic of the Congo and The Gambia. We have also built churches, schools, constructed water projects and dug wells.
It has been an amazing journey; people coming together from around the world to serve others in need. I have been able to witness this all first-hand and my hope is the work of Lighthouse Medical Missions will continue to grow and that we will achieve an even greater impact on a world in need.
The 10th Annual WALK TO AFRICA was held on May 5th, 2018.
Hundreds of people once again walk the beautiful streets of Santa Monica in support of the Lighthouse Medical Missions and their vision to provide medical care, build schools and construct water projects for the suffering and impoverished children of Africa.

The vision of Lighthouse Medical Missions is to bring the love of God to the sick and dying in the poorer nations of the world. Our teams consist of volunteers who freely give of their time and finances to reach the forgotten and neglected with the truth of the Gospel through medicine.
