At Light Haven we have celebrated over 30 years of God’s faithfulness, and we continue to seek His guidance as we serve the Lord in our local community. We have deep historical roots to Emmaus Bible College, as two of our founding charter members (Jean Young and Paul Flint) taught for many years at the Chicago location of the school, and several other founding charter members: Arnold Spears, Chester Donaldson and Evelyn Miller (nee Taylor) and current and former directors on the Board are Emmaus alumnae.
Light Haven is a Christian retirement home in Northern Ontario, located 40 miles east of Sault Ste. Marie on the shores of beautiful Lake Huron. It opened its doors in 1981 after three years of construction by volunteer workers and with the financial and prayerful support of many individuals and assemblies. For more than 30 years Light Haven has been able to provide comfortable, home-like retirement living for elderly people in a Christian environment. Many of our residents have come to know the Lord in the sunset years of their life.
As we look ahead, we seek the Lord’s continuing direction on all aspects of the Home’s operations and the ministry to seniors in the North. Of the many items requiring prayer, our most immediate need is for a new Administrator to manage the Home. We have been blessed with the involvement of many Christians over the years, many of whom continue to be actively involved on a volunteer basis. We are thankful for their faithfulness and for the many ways in which they continue to assist Light Haven in meeting the challenges that exist.
The role of Administrator would be ideally suited to a Christian couple who are in fellowship with their local assembly, have a heart for service and Christian ministry particularly involving seniors, and some leadership or managerial skills or experience. Some health care or nursing experience would be an asset, but not required. The financial and reporting aspects are managed by a bookkeeper, so although oversight of those aspects of the Home’s operations would be involved, they will be assisted by a very capable bookkeeper.
If you are aware of an individual or couple within your own assembly or elsewhere who you think may be interested in learning more about this opportunity for Christian service, we would invite you to pray with them and encourage them to contact us for more information. They can contact Cecil Johnston (President of the Board) at (705) 785-2439 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org They may also contact Alan Miller (705-785-3335 or email@example.com) who is acting as interim Administrator while we seek a permanent replacement.
Please pray for us as we continue to seek His direction in providing for the physical and spiritual needs of the Home and its residents.
