Here at Lifelight, we believe that we are to connect not only with those inside the church community but those outside of it as well. One of our goals as a community is to build healthy and long sustaining relationships with other churches and ministries, supporting and encouraging each other as much as we can. We encourage all members of Lifelight Church to take part in connecting with others and experience the large family of Christ! Here are a few ministries that we have partnered with and their story with us:
Many leaders within Lifelight also work in partnership with Young Life San Francisco and Young Life Capernaum, with the aim of reaching out to the youth in the city. As much as we love the city of San Francisco, the scope of our vision isn't limited to here. Lifelight Church has also worked with Young Life in the Philippines, specifically with the region of Bacolod. There, we were able to meet the leaders and experience their ministry first-hand and support them with whatever means at hand. To this point, we still keep in contact with each other, encouraging and updating each other with our daily lives and our ministries.

Visayan Nazarene Bible College
During a trip to the Philippines, we also had the pleasure to visit Visayan Nazarene Bible College (VNBC) and meet the staff and students. They welcomed us with open arms and we were able to listen to their story. There were some trials (their main building was damaged in an earthquake and is currently unusable due to safety concerns [as of 2014]) along the way but still they stand all the while offering means of financial support to students. We were touched by their staff and story and have partnered with them ever since.
For years, Lifelight Church has partnered with others in Ensenada and have continually visited every year to connect with the local people and ministries there. Our good friend, Samuel who was part of Lifelight Church, currently resides in Mexico and serves as our contact with the local church there. Come join us as we do various projects such as Vacation Bible School (VBS) and construction, but mostly to enjoy meeting old and new friends and supporting their needs.
