Lighthouse Co-op!

We began in 2012 as a small group of families, seeking out a way to provide our children with a Christ-centered and parent-involved learning environment. We started a homeschool co-op on our YWAM campus, and the following year we felt the Lord leading us to grow. We added a grade and hired a like-minded teacher. Throughout the year we have been privileged to see our children thriving under this model of teachers and parents working together in the classroom. 

This year our kids have:
• Read for a combined total of 377 hours!
• Made approximately 136 trips to the playground
• Measured Noah’s ark to true Biblical dimensions
Ministered in 12 countries (all of them are 10/40 nations, the least-reached), including where parents have gone!

It has been an exciting year of learning and growth in our children. But our vision goes beyond just our personal families and ministries. Our goal is that we would have a four-fold impact: on children and families, on our community, on teachers, and on the least-reached nations. It is our desire that Biblically-based education would be multiplied in the nations, and that Jesus’ name would be glorified there!

We want to ask you to collaborate with us in this God-sized vision. As we look towards expansion next year, we need your help! We will be adding a grade, five new families, serving the wider homeschool community on our campus, preparing another classroom, and adding a teacher training role. Would you consider giving towards this growing ministry, with an impact reaching from the individual child all the way to the nations?

Our bare minimum is $1,000/month, with a dream goal for the year of $16,000. Would you be able to help us reach this? Would you consider sponsoring or donating towards one of our months this school year? That will cover the cost of our teacher and new classrooms, as well as almost all of the costs associated with the school. Thank you so much for your consideration.
