August 2003-November 2003


Lighthouse Baptist Church was a church plant that was started by Pastor Ryan, Sarah, their two children and two other couples.  Ryan & Sarah grew up near Wilmington, Ohio and served at the Bible Baptist Church of Wilmington, before following the call of God to come to Chillicothe to plant the new church. LBC Began with 8 people meeting at the Riverview Conference Center, Christopher Inn on Sundays and held midweek services at the local YMCA in August 2003.  Attendance grew to 40+ by November 2003.


                         November 2003-May 2005


Then LBC renovated & moved into a vacant building at 1542 N. Bridge St. in Nov. 2003.  LBC organized with 45 charter members on Jan. 25, 2004.  There they continued until May 2005.


              May 2005-July 2007


LBC moved into the former First Capital Craft Mall in May 2005 and quickly outgrew the facility.


July 2007-March 2012

We purchased and remodeled the former Chillicothe Baptist Church, and moved into it in July of 2007.  Once again after much growth we looked for options to answer our problems.

In March 2012 we began to have services at two campuses and purchased the North Campus(former First Capital Craft Mall)
