Lighthouse of Worship Ministries Inc. was founded by Elder Mark Perry, Evangelist Gail Perry, and their son Caleb on December 3, 2000. The original church location was 2216 Maple Street Humboldt, TN. In March of 2001, Pastor Perry began A Closer Walk radio broadcast on WIRJ 740 AM. 

In April 2001, ministers, deacons, and ushers that had been added to the ministry were consecrated. That service marked the beginning of what would become an annual event. May 2001 marked another first in the ministry of Lighthouse of Worship; The Gathering of the Mourning Women Revival, which is now an annual conference bringing together women from all over the West TN area.

On October 29, 2001 the church was chartered as a non-profit incorporation under the TN Nonprofit Corp. Act. In May 2002, Lighthouse of Worship received Federal Certification of Exemption under 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

When the church outgrew the Maple Street location, God opened the way for relocation to 4400 Warren Road Humboldt, TN. In a short time a former machine shop was transformed into a beautiful place to worship. Apostle Mark Perry chartered and incorporated Beacon of Hope International Ministries & Outreach in 2006. At the turn of 2007, another ministry was birthed by the Apostle and the First Lady, Evangelist Gail Perry. Light a Life Incorporated has been launched to help needy children in our area.

The church has continued to grow in numbers and outreach ministries. Services are held monthly at one of the local nursing homes. The Women of Light Fellowship also meets on a monthly basis. Weekly television broadcasts were added in 2006.

Having outgrown the Warren Road location, Lighthouse of Worship Ministries relocated to 715 Craddock Street, Humboldt,TN. The first service was held there on March 27, 2011.
