Adrian Taylor, Jr., was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri. It was there, living in the inner-city, that he learned very quickly that he had precocious communication and leadership skills. That’s a fancy way of saying he talked too much and couldn’t sit still. Despite living in such an adverse environment, Adrian excelled. In his teenage years, he volunteered, for over a decade, for Catholic Charities in their after school and summer programs. He earned on multiple occasions, Midtown Catholic Charities’ “Outstanding Youth Leadership Award”, and was the only student to fully complete the “Junior Leadership Program.”

Adrian’s excellence soared in high school. He joined the Air Force Junior ROTC program and instantly caught the attention of his Instructors. Adrian joined the Drill Team, and was appointed the Drill Team Commander during his senior year. He collected multiple awards and medals, marched in numerous parades, and led his Corps to 1 st place honors at City-wide drill competitions. He graduated with the rank of Cadet Lt. Colonel and had planned an exciting Military career, but, instead, he felt the strong calling of God to lay aside military service and pursue a life in Ministry. From there Adrian went to Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, where he studied Speech Communications. It was there he met his beloved wife La Kenya. They married in January of 2000, and moved to Denver a year later. Adrian served at Marilyn Hickey Ministries as a Prayer Counselor answering prayer calls daily. In October of 2003, he founded Lighthouse Church International in Aurora, Colorado with 4 people in his living room. The church quickly grew and hundreds began attending. After 9 years, in response to taking over as Pastor of a struggling congregation, Adrian and his family relocated to Cape Girardeau, MO where they restructured the church and founded Lighthouse Breakthrough International Ministries. For 5 years, he transformed a fledgling and hurting congregation of people into a healthy thriving place of victory and peace. They are currently undertaking the successful renovation of the Historic Former “Benia Israel Orthodox Jewish Synagogue” in Downtown Cape Girardeau. The Lighthouse has restored the facility to be a beacon of Light once again. Since Easter Sunday of 2013, the old Synagogue, now dubbed “The Synagogue of Faith,” has served as the primary worship location for Lighthouse Ministries.  In June of 2013, Adrian and his leadership established a Community outreach of Lighthouse Ministries called: “The Restoration Center.” The RC, for short, is all about building strong kids as

the foundation for our community. The RC will serve to house a computer lab, a Scholarship fund, after school programs, an in-depth youth mentoring program, and The Tree Christian Business Network.
