When Jeff Simmons started in ministry, he was surprised at how much of his time involved business. As our guest on Mornings with Eric and Brigitte on Thursday, Jeff tells us that most people in ministry receive little or no training in this area. When faced with multiple business decisions and tasks a day, leaders can become discouraged or frustrated. As a pastor and entrepreneur, Jeff Simmons can equip pastors and nonprofit leaders with the training they need and help them become effective and wise stewards of the money and resources entrusted to them by God.

The mission of Lighthouse Palm Beach County is to offer outreach to women involved in the commercial sex trade in Palm Beach County. Their goals are to gather start-up funding and volunteers to open “LightHouse Dog Treats.” In addition to becoming a funding stream, we want to be able to hire women from the Pop-Up program on a cash basis, to give them the dignity of an honorable paycheck. Long and longer range goals: Create a safe house program for helping survivors move from victims, to survivors, to triumphant thrivers! Processing trauma, and addressing life skill deficits take both time and energy unavailable without some external support.
