Danny Donato - Lead Pastor
Pastor Danny has been the Lead Pastor of Lighthouse since May, 2011. Passionate about preaching the Word of God, Danny takes great joy in helping people see the Scriptures come alive in their life and have those "get it" moments. When he isn't preaching, in a meeting, or having coffee with someone, Danny is busy chasing his 5 kids (Bryce, Jordan, Kendall, Brayden and Ava) around to all their activities.
The absolute love of his life is his best friend and bride, Angela. They have been married since July, 2000. When the whole family actually gets a night at home together, they enjoy firing up the grill and inviting people over for fellowship.
Although they live here in Cardinal Country, Danny still holds his allegiance to his hometown Reds. He is also a huge Ohio State fan and a reluctant Bengals Fan.
Danny believes that God is doing BIG things in the lives of people in Washington County and Southern Illinois. He also trusts that Lighthouse will have an opportunity to lead the way as they pursue the vision God has given them. If you would like to contact Danny you can reach him here.
