Michigan Lighthouse Ministries is partnering with pastors, to educate, encourage, and mobilize their congregations to stand up, speak up, and show up. Our Founders understood this and were involved in promoting the Christian faith in all three of God’s ordained institutions.
WHAT PASTORS AND POLITICIANS ARE SAYING
“Pastor Ralph has an exceptional understanding of the importance of pastors ‘standing in the gap’ by leading the societal discussion against evil. Michigan Lighthouse Ministries is equipping and educating the church. Every congregation needs to invite and hear this Biblically wise message!”
Hon. Bob McEwen, former U.S. Congressman, Executive Director for Council for National Policy

“I’m excited for pastor Ralph to bring his unique combination of thirty-five years in ministry and the experience of running for Michigan’s governor to pastors and churches. He understands God’s mandate for Faith engagement in culture.”
Chad Connelly - President Faith Wins, RNC’s first ever National Director of Faith Engagement.
"The battle for the Mountain of Government is one of the most critical spiritual wars of our generation. To ignore it is to acquiesce and surrender to wickedness and immorality that will doom this nation. But the Body of Christ is awakening all around the country. We are throwing off petty differences and uniting under the banner of an undying “Allegiance to the Kingdom of Heaven”. For this reason, God is raising up, equipping, and anointing cultural warriors to lead the charge. It is my sincere conviction that Ralph Rebandt is such a warrior and leader, called by God, '…for such a time as this.'"

"The Bible says, 'Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.' (Matthew 5:16) Ralph Rebandt has been called by God to lead a ministry that provides a vehicle for pastor’s to accomplish this command. I believe every pastor should embrace, support, and participate in the ministry of Lighthouse Ministries. We must support good men, and participate with them, who are letting the truth of God’s word shine through them to a culture that desperately needs Light."

“ Michigan Lighthouse Ministries is leading Michigan and America back to its Judeo-Christian foundations. Our culture is in deep trouble and the only line of defense are authentic biblical churches addressing the issues facing society. Ralph formed “Michigan Lighthouse Ministries” to Educate, Equip, and Engage the Church to bring biblical guidance to civil government. Ralph and Carol are the real deal. They are authentic people who are passionate about their faith and the U. S. Constitution that was bathed in biblical principles. Our government is under seize by radical socialism/communism. The last line of defense is the Christian church. We know these folks well and highly endorse this ministry.”

MEET RALPH REBANDT
Founder Ralph Rebandt was a candidate for Michigan Governor in the 2022 primary election. That platform provided him with a unique perspective on the election process and numerous opportunities to engage with the Michigan electorate and Michigan churches.
During the campaign he was known for highlighting America’s Christian heritage and bringing that discussion back into the public conversation. It has been stated that Michigan politics will never be the same because of his bold leadership to restore our Judeo-Christian values. Having served as lead pastor for Oakland Hills Community Church for 35 years, he was involved in the development of three additional churches before retiring to run for governor.
Ralph presently serves on the Board of Governors for the Council for National Policy, Washington D.C., and as chaplain for the Michigan Association of Chiefs of Police, Southeastern Michigan Chiefs of Police, Farmington Hills Police Department, and Beverly Hills Police Department. He is actively involved in speaking engagements all around the state of Michigan in churches, at community events, and on law enforcement platforms.
After receiving a Bachelor's Degree in Religious Education from Summit University in Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, Ralph earned a Master's Degree in Religious Education and M. Div. at Westminster Seminary in Philadelphia where he graduated magna cum laude and acquired credits in the Ph.D. program. Ralph is passionate about serving his Savior, about America and her true history, about his beautiful state of Michigan, and and adores his high school sweetheart Carol, who he has been married to for 47 years, their four grown children and spouses, and will talk to you for hours about his 17 grandchildren.
