WE ARE BELOVED DISCIPLES MAKING DISCIPLES...
Lighthouse is a diverse community of disciples (students) of Jesus’s teachings and way of life in the tradition of the Beloved Disciple (John 13; 19; 20; 21). Living into this way involves receiving and giving love to God (UP), one another (IN), and our city (OUT).
We practice discipleship as a family within our community (Beloved Communities) mostly celebrating together and working for the betterment of our neighborhoods and networks.
Each Sunday (9:30/11:00 AM) we gather to develop as disciples, to remember Jesus, to worship and to celebrate what God is doing in San Francisco.
1337 Sutter Street
Sunday gathering: 9:30a & 11:00a

Danny grew up in Stockton, CA. About his hometown, Danny says "If you've never been there think asparagus, delta waterways, and high crime rate."
What brought Danny to San Francisco was a beautiful brunette, whom he later married Danny realized he wanted to be a pastor for the Lighthouse community after journeying through the two-year pastoral apprenticeship training.
Danny says: "I had always felt called to ministry but the apprenticeship helped me grapple with what it means to be a pastor. It was during that time where I was convinced, that this was how I wanted to serve Lighthouse." What Danny enjoys about San Francisco: "I enjoy the culture and uniqueness of each neighborhood in San Francisco. Every neighborhood has something special to offer and they each tell stories of times past." A fun fact about Danny is that ironing & washing dishes relaxes him.
