Epping Lighthouse Ministries was founded in 2009 by Adam and Rachelle Chase, along with a team of supporters from their home church, Epping Bible Church. Their desire was to demonstrate the unconditional love of God to their community by building relationships, meeting physical needs, and sharing the love of Jesus that transforms lives! There are many plans for the future, but the first part of the ministry that was started was opening The Porch. The Porch is a youth center in the middle of town that is open after school to give the youth in the town of Epping free snacks, a fun, safe place to hang out, and loving adults to offer support.
