Sharing God’s love with people experiencing poverty and hardship by empowering them toward abundant life.

Our Purpose & Beliefs

“The light shines in the darkness…”

John 1:5


LUMINA encourages children and youth through Christian character building, empowers families through life skill education, and equips those in need with basic necessities and proper clothing for work and school. LUMINA strives to have all people restored to the vital and productive lives that God intended for everyone.

LUMINA is the old Latin word for light. We believe God calls us to let our light shine in the darkest places of people’s lives and communities, places such as poverty and despair that families experience. LUMINA offers the impoverished in Lancaster County the light of hope.
