You won’t find a large body of water near the Gospel Hill Lighthouse. This beacon of light shines out over the valley surrounding Gospel Hill. Construction began on the lighthouse in August 2002, 26 years after Evangelist Ron Davis was given a vision for the lighthouse.
The lighthouse was built to draw people to Gospel Hill, as a place of prayer to represent Jesus, the true “Lighthouse of the World”.
Visitors to the lighthouse will learn of the vision the Lord gave Ron Davis, watch videos of the construction and take a guided tour to the top of the building. Along the way, you will pass through a prayer room where you may choose to stop and reflect, and pray for personal needs, or those of the community and around the world. The view from the observation deck at the top of the tower allows you to look out over the gently rolling hills of the countryside and marvel at the wonder of God’s Creation.
In addition to the lighthouse, there is a fellowship hall on the site, an outdoor theater which is the site of Open-Air Gospel Sings, and a Prayer Path. The Prayer Path meanders through a wooded area across from the parking lot from the lighthouse. You’ll find plaques located along the gravel trail with scripture, benches to sit and prayer, a bridge and a cross.
Today the lighthouse draws daily visitors with buses and school groups welcome. The lighthouse has welcomed visitors from 40 states and 20 foreign countries. There is no charge to visit the lighthouse though donations are accepted.
The Gospel Hill Lighthouse is open Monday through Friday 9 am to 3 pm and by appointment evenings and weekends.
