About Lighthouse Ministries

Our Vision

Lighthouse Ministries is a beacon of hope, providing biblical help through counseling, coaching, small groups, and weekly articles. We help people thrive in faith and life.

Our Mission

Our mission is to help fulfill the Great Commission of making disciples through biblical counseling, coaching, small groups, speaking, and writing (Matthew 28:18-20). To provide a safe environment for adults and children to receive Biblical direction in experiencing God’s comfort and becoming strong and fruitful individuals.

Our professionals are committed to helping individuals and families realize their God-given potential for their lives. In evaluating life and relationships, we consider the cognitive (the way one thinks), the behavioral (the way one acts), and the spiritual (one’s values, motivations, and relationship with God). We work with people from a variety of religious backgrounds as well as with those who have no religious background.

We are a ministry in that it is our intention to have the Spirit of God help people with their issues as we help them position themselves to receive His help and direction. We are unique in that we are not merely Christians implementing a secular counseling model, but because we are Christians, our ministry is built upon a Christian foundation and world view.

We adhere to a strict confidentiality policy. We understand and appreciate you putting your trust in us.

Our Team


Larry Wilson, Director and Counselor

Larry specializes in helping people have better relationships with God, others, and themselves. Through personal counseling and coaching, Larry helps individuals, couples, and families develop internal strength along with life and relationship skills. He believes that as a person or family discovers Christ and His power and principles for living, they will thrive in faith and life.

Larry practices a biblical model of counseling, which means it is not only based on biblical principles, but is directive in nature. He encourages individuals to move forward and experience healthy growth in their lives and relationships. This happens in a confidential setting.

Larry and his wife, Debbie, moved to the Triangle in 1987 to begin a counseling and teaching ministry. Larry received his B.S. degree in marketing from Arizona State University and his M.A. in Counseling from Grace Theological Seminary in Indiana. Larry has been involved in ministering to families since 1973. He enjoys all kinds of sports and cycles on the weekend. He is a good sport in joining Debbie in ballroom dancing when the opportunity arises. Even though he was raised in the west, he calls North Carolina, home.

What We Believe

We believe that Jesus Christ is God our Creator who can and wants to bring wholeness and health to people.

We believe the Holy Spirit is God’s Spirit who enables us to minister and genuinely help people. The Holy Spirit is the one who brings restoration, healing, and direction.

We believe the Bible is God’s true and accurate communication to humankind and that it provides direction, hope, and life. As we understand and implement Biblical principles, we position ourselves to be close to God and others.

We believe that the foundation for effective living comes from aligning our lives with Biblical principles. Proverbs 24:6 and Psalm 1:1-3 state that Biblical counsel plays a key role in victorious living. Seeking counsel in any area of life is a sign of maturity.

Our Financial Policy

Lighthouse Ministries, as a ministry of grace offers two types of services.

  • Coaching appointments are $120. Phone appointments are to be paid before the appointment.
  • Counseling appointments are valued at $120/session and offered on a contribution basis. This means the client contributes the amount he or she is able to contribute. We don’t set a charge per session, but neither are we free. As each one contributes what they can, everyone benefits.
    We are not underwritten by any corporation or specific individuals, but depend on the generosity of our clients and friends of Lighthouse. Sponsors contribute so those who want Biblical help, but are not able to pay the full rate, can get the help they need when they need it. We ask in return that those who take advantage of this sponsor-based opportunity do their part by contributing what they can. Many recipients choose to pass on the blessing by becoming sponsors.

Your donations are tax-deductible and can be left at the time of your visit, mailed in or paid on line with Pay Pal.  Some choose to donate  monthly; see the “Donate” page. Please make checks payable to Lighthouse Ministries. Fees for books, classes, and coaching are not tax-deductible.

“Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” II Corinthians 9:7
