About Lighthouse

Lighthouse was founded by Russell Bjorkman out of a belief that there has to be a way to activate the buried talents resulting from generations of churchgoers and prayers, to serve and love a world in desperate need for the love of Christ.  How can we have 200 churches closing per week in the US alone, when there is serious spiritual strife and pain.  There is a better way.  

Professional Background

Real estate investor and former international attorney (Penn Law/ Wharton/ Skadden Arps). Co-head of Faith Driven Investor real estate solutions group. Former venture partner at faith driven venture capital fund (Sovereign’s Capital). Russell is an active real estate investor in the US and has advised on over $1bn of Chinese and European real estate transactions.
