Board of Directors
To ensure the highest level of accountability as we carry out our important work, Lighthouse is governed by a responsible, independent Board of Directors, with a minimum of five members at any time. Our Board reflects a variety of church affiliations, skill sets, and leadership experience. Lighthouse Board members can serve up to two consecutive three-year terms before rotating off, opening up opportunities for others to bring their passion and perspectives to the ministry.
Our current Board members include:
Carol Youngmann – Chair
Lynn Moorhead – Vice Chair
Diane Wade – Recording Secretary
Bob Wick – Corporate Secretary/ Treasurer
Debbie Provencher – Non-Voting Member
Lighthouse serves as an extension of the Church, partnering with local congregations to carry out our God-given calling to care for the orphans and widows of our time. As a faith-based organization, it is our policy and conviction to have a variety of churches represented by our Board of Directors. Our current Board includes members of: Cornerstone Christian Church, Grace Redeemer Church, New Beginnings Church, Hawthorne Gospel Church, Calvary Temple, Calvary Baptist and Bridgeway Community Church. In addition, our supporters and volunteers represent over 50 churches of various denominations located throughout Northern New Jersey, as well as statewide organizations like the Knights of Columbus. We are grateful for the variety of ways that God’s people bring hope and love to life through Lighthouse!
