This year's theme is based on Galatians 5:1 "It is for freedom that Christ has set us free." We choose to CELEBRATE all that He has done for us & through us, and to see the beauty of each other's stories.
The Lighthouse is a multi-lingual church, so Celebrate Conference is bi-lingual. We get to CELEBRATE our diversity & grow together as a picture of heaven's diversity. We are offering translation, as well as Spanish Language Breakouts.
DR. TAYLOR SIMON
Taylor Simon is a wife and mother first. But when she’s not at home chasing after the twins, organizing and decorating her home, or reading a good book, she is always ready to deliver a bold prophetic word and demonstrate the supernatural power of God. She has the privilege of serving women of all generations through her non-profit organization called TEE Nation which is designed to cultivate and equip women in every area of their life for such a time as this. As a former secular recording artist and performer, Taylor is committed to using her voice to unleash healing, righteousness, and restoration that is centered in biblical foundation to a self-sufficient world. This multifaceted author, entrepreneur, influencer, and cheerleader of dreams is fierce in her approach to helping others walk confidently in their God-given purpose and identity, breaking generational limitations, and discovering that they were made for more.
