Who We Are

    Light the Lake Friends and Family, we have some exciting news to share with you! Our Ministry is growing, and God is expanding our territory! With new growth comes a new name. Introducing LIGHT THE WAY Ministry!

    LIGHT THE WAY Ministry, {fka: Light The Lake} is Missouri’s Largest Free Christian Music Festival.  Our name has changed but our hearts and mission remain the same, to “Take Church Outside the Walls" Spreading the Light of Jesus Christ.” LIGHT THE WAY Ministry will continue to provide the highest caliber of Christian entertainment and value for our audience. Light the Way will still be an organization operating as a nonprofit under our 501c3.

   In 2017 we had over 9000 people in attendance and in 2018 over 20,000. With this amazing growth, we have outgrown our previous Stockton MO. location. We are so grateful to the Chamber of Commerce, City Park and all the generous
people of Stockton who helped us become such a fantastic Free Family Festival in the Ozarks. Thank you city of Stockton, MO. And now for another exciting Announcement… LIGHT THE WAY is moving our Festival to The Greater Springfield Area for 2019! We are also branching out and expanding our Ministry to multiple locations for
special one-day festival Events in 2019! Watch our website and Facebook page and stay tuned for locations, updates and
future announcements.

   We are so excited and humbled at what the Lord has done with this Ministry. We can’t wait to see you and see what God does with LIGHT THE WAY Ministry for 2019! To God be the Glory.
