Our goal is to teach the kids about the love of God and to show them how to be an example of His love.
We do interactive Bible lessons for children ages 0 to 4 (nursery) and children ages 5 to 11 (children’s church). The classes teach the kids life lessons that allow them to apply what they have learned in their lives.
Children’s Ministry Leader
Children’s Ministry Leader, Kristine Perrance has served as a community volunteer in the Morongo Basin for over 20 years, with 15 years in youth ministry. In 2007, she felt the call from God to serve in children’s ministries and in 2018 she joined Lighthouse Christian Center’s congregation which led to her becoming our Children’s Ministry Leader just 4 years later.
Outside of church walls, Kristine continues to be a beacon of light to others. While in high school, Kristine volunteered at a YMCA in Whittier, CA.
“That’s when I first saw kids who needed a mentor and I wanted to make a difference in their life.”
Since 2011, Kristine has volunteered her time at the Boys and Girls teen center in Yucca Valley, CA. God used her to bring hope to teens who battled peer pressure, depression, and anxiety. With God’s love, lives were changed, families were strengthened.
Kristine is married to Mitchell Perrance. They married in July of 1993 and together they have 4 children and 7 grandchildren. Mitch and Kristine met in Pico Rivera Ca in 1992 on a blind date. During their date they went dirt bike riding, which is still one of their favorite things to do together.
In her spare time, Kristine enjoys trucking with her husband, dirt bike riding, swimming, and playing games with her 50 plus folks. Kristine enjoys the outdoors so much that you’ll often find her playing with the kiddos on the playground at church. Kristine loves to play tag, play on the monkey bars, and play Marco Polo in the pool. Kristine’s favorite snacks are dark chocolate covered blueberries and blue tortilla chips and hummus
She truly is a kid at heart.
Rachel Loiselle found her passion for working with children, which made her pursue a career as a teacher. She graduated with her Master’s in Science Education in hopes of working for the local school district.
Rachel has been attending Lighthouse Christian Center for the past 14 years, where she learned she could not only pursue her passion but do God’s work at the same time. Four years later, she began teaching at the Children’s church and has continued to do so for the past ten years. Rachel says she loves to see the kids enjoy learning about the Bible in her class.
Rachel met her husband, Brandon, in 2012 at a Bible camp in Wisconsin. He became friends with her older brother, which opened the door for them to start dating in 2014. Brandon moved to Joshua Tree in the summer of 2016 to be closer to her and began attending Lighthouse Christian Center that year. The two then married in August of 2018 and in 2021, they welcomed their first child, Savannah. Together, they also lead the Young Adults.
In her spare time, Rachel loves spending time with her family. She enjoys reading and watching movies. Her favorite movies are the Lord of the Rings trilogy. You can always find Rachel doing silly things to make the kids laugh. She truly enjoys ensuring the kids have fun during their class time.
