Lighthouse Baptist Church – Eastern Shore

Andrew & Jennie Tewell

Andrew has lived on the Gulf Coast of Alabama for 20+ years after moving here to help his family start Lighthouse Baptist in Theodore. He knew at a young age he wanted to be in the ministry and has dedicated his adult life to serving in the church. 

Andrew and Jennie knew each other in high school as their schools competed in sports but they did not begin dating until college. After college they immediately began serving in ministry at Lighthouse in Theodore. Throughout their ministry Andrew has served in almost every area of the church including student ministry, school administration, and most recently couples ministry and church administration. Before having children Jennie served in the media department at the church. 

They have 3 beautiful girls, Ashlyn, Caelyn and Lauryn. Jennie is an entrepreneur at heart and has owned and operated several business with multiple employees. They have always loved the Eastern Shore and look forward to sharing the love of Christ within this community. 

Our Story

Lighthouse-Eastern Shore began in the fall of 2022 as a campus of Lighthouse Baptist Church in Theodore. In July of 2022 we held our first preview service at the Hilton Garden Inn in Daphne where we saw 40 people gather.

We then held a preview service in August and another in September at our current location off County Road 64. We launched weekly services after our Grand Opening on October 17, 2022 and have since watched God bless our faith and grow His church!

We are currently meeting in the building of the Congregation Mayim Chayim while we await the next step God has for us. A church is not a building, it’s the people! And no matter where we gather, one thing we know for sure: there’s no place like Lighthouse!
