Light for the Lost (LFTL) serves to “empower the church to provide God’s Word for every person on the planet.” Providing a variety of resources such as audio, visual, and printed materials, LFTL has one guiding principle: all Light For The Lost assistance must be to provide resources directly related to evangelism.

LFTL is dedicated to sharing the message of Christ globally and is resourced by congregations from all walks of life. Through the generous giving of churches, individuals, and businesses, LFTL is assisting missionaries and missions projects around the world with evangelistic resources to share the message of hope.

John 4:35 says, “Look at the fields...they are ripe for harvest.” LFTL provided resources are multiplying and empowering the efforts of missionaries in communicating the story of Jesus to a 'ripe field of people.' Are you ready to make an eternal impact?

Contribute today with a special gift and/or sign-up to give monthly through our Councilman program. Councilmen are individuals that contribute monthly and receive a special newsletter once-a-month sharing testimonies and stories of what their contributions are doing.

The History of LFTL

Celebrate the Light

Celebrate the Light

For 60 years, Light for the Lost has not wavered from the vision God gave to Sam Cochran to send the message of salvation through Christ in many languages around the world. This heartbeat for souls brings us to the next chapter of LFTL with the introduction of Celebrate the Light, a multimedia mission-focused initiative to fulfill God’s command and reach lost people. Since our inception, LFTL has raised over 300 million dollars for missionaries and outreach centers to share the gospel of Christ. We continue that great journey with Celebrate the Light.

As part of Celebrate the Light, local churches can host a Celebrate the Light service. This service is an opportunity to connect the congregation with the mission of LFTL and allow each person to prayerfully stand with those who are in the harvest fields and give of their resources to equip missionaries with evangelism materials to reach the lost. What better way to celebrate Him than by partnering with missionaries and providing them the means to tell others about Him?
