Marvin Sapp Opens Second Church Location
Bishop Marvin Sapp and his wife, the late Malinda Prince Sapp, started Lighthouse Full Life Center in Grand Rapids, over 13 years ago with the vision to ultimately serve the region of Western Michigan. Growing closer to that vision, Sapp has announced a new location in Muskegon, MI with inaugural services beginning Sunday, April 2nd.
Lighthouse Full Life Center Muskegon, which Sapp likes to call “Lighthouse Lakeshore”, is located at 1292 Jefferson Street, the former location of the St. Jean Baptiste Catholic Church. Bishop Sapp purchased the building from the Catholic Diocese of Grand Rapids in January. The site features grand historic details, such as ornate woodwork, cathedral ceilings and original stained glass windows, all which are being preserved to maintain the architectural integrity of the building. “When I first started Lighthouse, I knew that I was called to serve not only my city of Grand Rapids, but the region,” says Sapp. “I had been praying about where to go and asking God to give me direction. I would have planted a new church before now, but I have been focused on raising my kids.”
Bishop Marvin Sapp is the senior pastor of Lighthouse Full Life Center, with locations in Grand Rapids and Muskegon, Michigan. Additionally, he is Metropolitan Bishop within the Global United Fellowship, under the leadership of Presiding Bishop Neil C. Ellis. Marvin Sapp is also an internationally recognized recording artist with multiple Grammy and Billboard Award nominations, two BET Awards and multiple Stellar Gospel Music Awards.
