PROJECTS

Our Global Projects

 
BELFAST

Our first project is in Belfast, Northern Ireland (United Kingdom), supporting local developers to remove the stain of the forty-year long war of the troubles.  We are working with a local developer to convert a former paramilitary headquarters into multifamily housing, with a live-in Apartment Life coordinator. Lighthouse is excited to partner with Apartment Life to launch the leading US multifamily housing ministry into the global market.

Where there was once darkness and strife, there will be hope, prosperity and a place for faith and community to flourish. 

Why Belfast?

Why we are interested in Romania

  • Lighthouse seeks to bring the light of Christ into a country that although orthodox Christian, shows signs of missing a true relationship with Christ.

  • There is an opportunity to bring prosperity to communities that may still be marred by the leader dictatorship only three decades ago.

Local projects

 

  • We are in discussions with a local developer about large scale planned developments, which include hundreds of houses and apartments, we are also considering replicating this model in various cities across the country. Where this developer is already building, the community is seeing significant improvements as their high-quality build is forcing other developers to raise their standards as well.

Introduction

  • Mexico, located in the southern region of North America and home to 129 million people.

  • Economic growth. Fastest rising GDP.

 

Why we are interested in Mexico

  •  Mexico is a land of incredibly geographical and economical diversity and beauty, with significant economic and criminal challenges. When local priests denounce criminal activity they can face threats and even death. In the United States, immigrants (many from Mexico) are often vilified. We feel a call to love our neighbours, and investment is a tangible way to show that love. 

Local projects

  • We are reviewing and actively seeking people doing property development in Mexico, including creating new technologies, such as 3-D printing of homes.
