Building Churches. Changing Lives. by Charles Latchison

Reach, Teach, Mend, and Send. That is the mission of Light & Life West, a Free Methodist congregation located in Long Beach, California. Lead Pastor, Charles Latchison, is a Southern California native, having grown up in Compton. He and his wife, Carolyn, along with a core team and other faithful supporters, started the church in 2003. 

The Free Methodist Investment and Loan Fund has been privileged to partner with Light and Life West at two critical times to enable them to better facilitate ministry and outreach to their community. Most recently, the partnership allowed Light and Life West to purchase a new facility to better fit their significant growth. The new building allows all ministries to occur under the same roof and is able to host large community service events. Previously, their children’s ministries were meeting in a separate facility a block away from the main campus. 

We are grateful for the effective ministry of the Light & Life West church and the difference they are making in their local community. As always, it is only through investments like yours that The Free Methodist Investment and Loan Fund is able to partner with ministries like Light & Life West to expand the Kingdom of God.
