20-Year Anniversary Celebration!
Announcing Lamplighter’s Commemorative Collection
For twenty years Lamplighter has been printing the Family Collection of Rare Books—captivating stories that build Christlike character…one story at a time. It is exciting to trace the sovereign hand of God as He helps us find each new book. Our newest release Escape from the Eagle’s Nest is, of course, the best book I’ve ever read!
People often ask where I find these books, and the answer is always the same: “God!” Each book is a miracle, and each story is life changing. Here at Lamplighter, we select books that we believe have the potential to save lives—stories that will rescue and redeem the hearts, minds, and souls of children, teens, and adults around the world.
1987 - LAMPLIGHTER MINISTRIES (In 1987 we started as Cornerstone Distributors)
Our mission: To make ready a people prepared for the Lord, by building
Christlike character, one story at a time. We are thankful for
twenty-nine years of ministry, and twenty years in publishing. Since
1996 we have published ten books per year, reaching over three million
1997 - FIRST LAMPLIGHTER FACILITY
With our first new book, The Basket of Flowers, and four more
titles selling faster than we could keep in stock, it was time to move
from the barn (literally!) to our new facility at the Waverly Community
2009 - LAMPLIGHTER THEATRE
Everything changed when we launched Lamplighter Theatre! This was the turning point in our ministry’s history; now heard on 1800 radio outlets in 29 countries, Lamplighter Theatre has grown beyond what we could have imagined. And in the words of our producer, John Fornof, “The best is yet to come!”
2010 - LAMPLIGHTER GUILD
The Guild—a dream come true. Hundreds of students of all ages have experienced what most have said cannot be described in words. Truly, the Guild is a renaissance of creative excellence that inspires one to know God intimately and proclaim Him passionately. It is a choreographic platform that invites an encounter with God’s divine power, fueled by an intimate knowledge of His Word, and galvanized by His promises, whereby students engage in a partnership with His divine nature (2 Peter 1).
2011 - LAMPLIGHTER MOMENTS
Our daily radio broadcast, Lamplighter Moments, came to life rather spontaneously. After a thousand two-minute devotionals were circulated for our readership, they became a natural fit for radio and are now heard on 650 radio outlets in 14 countries. They will soon be compiled in a new book titled Defining Moments.
2013 - NEW HEADQUARTERS
After 17 years in beautiful Waverly, PA, it was time to turn the page to a new chapter and move to our new location in western NY. Located near the Grand Canyon of the East, this little village of Mt. Morris is a place of mystery, history, and new beginnings! And when you step inside the nationally recognized historic building, you will know that you have stepped back in time and forward in wonder!
2014 - LAMPLIGHTER BINDERY
After 15 years of research, the bindery and printing operation have finally come to fruition. When you visit our new facilities, you will be surprised by what you see in this busy atmosphere of printing, binding, and books galore! Be ready to put on an apron and get your hands a little gluey—there’s no time for slackers!
2015 - LAMPLIGHTER LIBRARY, BOOKSTORE, & DEPOSITORY
After the purchase of a 19th-century Classic Gothic church building and parsonage, there is now room for creative ideas to flourish. And flourish they have! First is the bookstore. Almost transformed in one day, the grand hallway and dining room are now a one-of-a-kind bookstore of the most eclectic kind! Complete with an African rosewood drum, remnants of a 19th century organ, and a child’s roll top desk, the new bookstore is open to the public. Next are the library and depository of 25,000 books, displayed on 42 nine-foot-high bookcases that fill the perimeter of this ancient building. You won’t be disappointed when you visit!
2016 - RECORDING STUDIO
On January 2, the president was passing by the church’s 25-foot organ, and a cry came ringing through the building: “Stop the presses!” And stop they did. The entire staff began carrying over 500 wooden and metal musical pipes and bellows that had been encased in a chamber behind the organ. The following day a construction team dismantled and rebuilt the structure for the future recording studio! Things happen quickly around here and rather spontaneously! With our own recording studio, we can now host the Guild here at the Lamplighter headquarters and have students participate in live dramas!
2016 - LEADERSHIP TRAINING & CHALLENGE COURSE
With 50 acres of streams, woods, and trails only 800 yards from the Lamplighter headquarters, it seemed a perfect fit and opportunity to begin the first stages of our leadership training and challenge course. God willing, this will be open for our 2016 Guild this June!
2016 - FUTURE EXPANSION
To add to the excitement, Lamplighter was recently given the opportunity to purchase an early 20th-century school, completely renovated, equipped with gymnasium, theatre, and all the rooms needed for our Guild classes, printing and bindery expansion, and expanded internship program. And this facility is located only 100 yards from our headquarters!
