Be a Lighthouse Church

When a disaster strikes, will your church be the light? Samaritan’s Purse partners with churches when we respond to Canadian disasters such as floods and fires. We work together to share the love of Jesus Christ with people facing grief and uncertainty. Share Christ’s love with your community, and become one of our Lighthouse Church partners.

There are two ways churches can be a Lighthouse with Samaritan’s Purse:

Be a Lighthouse Sending Church

Lighthouse Sending Churches organize teams within their congregation that are willing to volunteer with Samaritan’s Purse, and then send these teams to disaster responses within Canada.

Be a Lighthouse Host Church

Lighthouse Host Churches are close to areas affected by disaster. They act as a home base in the days following a disaster by housing volunteers, storing equipment, and sharing information and insight about the community with Samaritan’s Purse staff.

“After partnering with Samaritan’s Purse during the flood clean-up in our community, we were seen as servants to the people in our community. It also empowered the people in our church with the confidence to know that with God’s help, we can make a difference in our community.”

~ Reverend Neville
