Sharon Richardson – Admin 

Loves photography, painting and being in ministry with Bill! Enjoys people, pets and new places! Hospitality is an important part of our life. God has been so faithful to us and our family in our journey with him, and we are so grateful for his goodness.

Tim Scott – Day to Pray Coordinator

Nancy and I were married in 1981 and began our journey together. We have 2 kids, both married and 2 very beautiful grandchildren, and a very well behaved German Shepherd grandpuppy! In 1984 God called us to this area and I took a job teaching at Nooksack Valley School District. After 35 years of teaching and coaching I retired from the public school and came to work at the Light of the World Prayer Center as the Day2Pray Coordinator.  I also lead worship and prayer sets within the prayer center. It is my great joy, great challenge, and great privilege to serve Jesus in the prayer room and in the community.  His prayer is that you will discover the love of the Christ so deeply that you will hear Jesus whisper, “You are my pearl of great price, you are the treasure I seek , you are mine!”
