Lighthouse International Church was founded in 2002 by Pastors Michael and Francisca Snow with four core values: Worship, Discipleship, Fellowship, and Outreach. Lighthouse has a passion to reach hurting people with the hope found in God. Out of that passion formed Transformation Youth Center. The center provides free after school and summer programs to Houston’s Inner-City youth and children. Over 400 students have registered in T.Y.C.’s programs (Skateboard Park, martial arts, dance classes, fitness center, drama, and music classes). Due to the success of its programs Lighthouse plans to open centers in other low income areas around the city.
Pastor Michael Snow was born and raised in Pasadena, Texas. He has been married for 14 years to his wife Francisca and they have three children. He graduated in 1997 with an Associates degree in Bible and a Bachelor of Science in Church Ministries from Southwestern Assemblies of God University. Michael has helped plant churches in El Salvador and Nicaragua. He has worked as Youth Pastor, Outreach Director, Children’s Pastor and Master’s Commission Director before founding Lighthouse Church. He is currently Senior Pastor of Lighthouse International Church and Director of Transformation Youth Center in Houston, Texas.
