Rob serves The Lighthouse as our Senior Pastor, and provides leadership for Students, Missions, and Evangelism.

Taffy Cain - Women's Ministry Coordinator
Taffy is a charter member of The Lighthouse. This comes as no big surprise, since she is Pastor Rob's wife! Her passion for Christ, and teaching God's Word, is contagious. For over six (6) years, Taffy had devoted her time and talents to reaching and teaching the children of The Lighthouse. Now she has turned her attention toward the ladies of our church family! We are truly blessed to have Taffy serve as our Women's Ministry Coordinator.

Taffy Allen
- Children's Ministry Coordinator
Taffy and her husband, Chris, became active at The Lighthouse in the very early days of the life of our church. They have one son (Cooper), and each serve faithfully on The Lighthouse staff! Chris is the Team Captain for our Audio Production ministry. Taffy has a passion for children, and does a tremendous job lining up activities and events to keep them growing in Christ. We thank God for a person like Taffy Allen to serve as our Children's Ministry Coordinator.

Maddie Cain - Video Production Coordinator
Maddie is our youngest, and newest staff member! She is a 10th grade student at American Christian Academy, and enjoys playing volleyball on the Varsity team. Maddie has learned the ropes on our Sunday video production, and assist with the Power Point and Media Shout presentations for our Worship Celebrations. The Lighthouse is very excited to have Maddie as our Video Production Coordinator.

Chris Allen - Audio Production Coordinator
Chris and his wife, Taffy, are charter members of The Lighthouse, having joined the church back when we were meeting at the McAbee Center! Chris is a lawyer in a firm which serves Greater Birmingham.  He has a tremendous amount of experience in sound production. Chris and Taffy have a handsome young son, Cooper, who is currently 3 years old! We are very pleased to have Chris on our church staff as our Audio Production Coordinator.
