Pastor Stephen GordonI was born and raised on a farm just outside of Maxwell Ontario. I was born into a Christian home and learned about Christ from a young age. My family was very involved in the ministry at our home church, Rock Mills Fellowship Baptist Church in Flesherton, ON. At the age of five after an AWANA club meeting I gave my heart to the Lord. At the age of ten I followed the Lords' leading and was baptized. I was very involved in the church while growing up serving with my family whenever we could.
Upon completing High School I enrolled in New Brunswick Bible Institute and completed their Bachelor of Theology program. It was during this time at Bible School that I met my wife Abby. We were married following graduation and served for two years at my home church as a Pastoral Intern. When the time came for the internship to be finished it was recommend by my church that I be ordained for the ministry. The ordination took place in May of 2010 and we began our ministry at Lighthouse in August of that same year.
After coming to Lighthouse in 2010 I continued my education by taking courses through Baptist Bible Seminary in Clarks Summit PA. In May of 2014 I gradutaed with a Master of Ministry Degree.
It is my privilege to serve as the Pastor here at Lighthouse. It is my passion to preach God's word and to help people live out the truths of the Bible.

Pastor Rob McFadden
Born and raised as a child in Sarnia Ontario with family roots in Nova Scotia and moved to Port Dover in my teen years where I met my wife Louise in High School. Worked in Stelco in Hamilton and Bruce Power in Mechanical Maintenance until 2013 when I fully retired. After 3 years of reading the Bible on my own and trying and failing to obey the Law in my own strength, I came to realize that the Lord Jesus Christ and his death on the cross for my sins was my only hope of salvation. I received Jesus as my Lord and Saviour in 1979 and began attending Tiverton Baptist Church. I served there for 35 years in such roles as Sunday School teacher, deacon, youth leader for 13 years and then as a bi-vocational pastor for 16 years before resigning in October 2014. Enrolled in Heritage Seminary in 2013 and completed in August 2015 the Certificate of Theology Program and in September 2015 entered into the MDIV program. Began attending Lighthouse in October 2014 and voted onto staff in September 2015.
I am happily married to Louise for 36 years and we have 2 children and 3 grandchildren. Looking forward with excitement to what God is going to do at Lighthouse.

Intern Scott Gordon
I was born and raised in Blue Mountain Ontario and loved the life that God had blessed me with. I was the youngest of 4 wild children and two loving and patient parents who were all believer’s in Christ. I accepted the truth that God was real and that his death for my sins was sufficient at 5 years old one sunny afternoon while attending Collingwood Fellowship Baptist Church and was baptized 2 years later. I continued to grow in my faith and my abilities to serve others as I went through my teenage years. With plans to be a helicopter pilot in the military, I decided to take one year at Word of Life Bible Institute to have a sure foundation of the bible and be off the military as soon as I could.
After, I slowly began to love the care that Christ has shown and that I could give to others. I interned at Collingwood Baptist church for a year while working in carpentry and then moved to Chicago for 3 more years of bible training at Moody Bible Institute. Shortly after graduating with a Bachelors in Pastoral Ministry in 2015, I married Jordyn from back home who also attended Moody and was asked by Pastor Steve to intern that I may learn how to love and minister better. I am excited to learn of the grace of God more fully and bring forth the grace Christ has given me in Kincardine—a safe, beautiful, and welcoming place.
