The Lighthouse Ministries is a non-profit, faith-based organization aimed at serving the poor, addicted, formerly incarcerated, or otherwise under-served community in Lexington, Kentucky. Dining with Dignity, through a partnership with the City of Lexington and the Office of Homelessness Prevention and Intervention, offers a safe, clean, indoor environment for the hungry of Lexington to eat a hot meal for lunch and dinner. Approximately 60,000 meals are served annually. Michael's Feet Ministry, yet another branch of the Lighthouse Ministries, provides new shoes and clean socks, as well as other hygienic items, for any guests in need.
Daniel Estes Henderson (1950 - 2004) was the man with the vision for The Lighthouse, The Nehemiah House and all other facets of the ministry that now encompass The Lighthouse Ministries, Inc.
1999 was a milestone year when they bought a building to house The Lighthouse Ministries. A renovation project got underway, which took many turns along the way and took a lot longer that they ever imagined. Just when they were making plans to open The Nehemiah House, a residence for men in the life transition training program, Dan got sick.
Dan had advanced liver disease. There’s so much to tell about Dan and you can read about him in a “Herald Leader Article.” His wonderful and amazing life ended on January 4, 2004 when he died on the operating table while going through liver transplant surgery.
Dan was gone and the ministry him and Tay had worked so hard to establish was so close to being ready. How could this be? But God kept after Tay's heart and she decided to keep it going. Dan would be proud to see the vision God gave him carried out.
