Pastor Michael Poindexter was born December 4, 1976 in Asheboro NC. He was born again September 6, 1998 at Gravel Hill Baptist Church in Denton, NC. Shortly after being saved the Lord began to deal with Pastor Poindexter about his call to preach. As many other men can testify, he ran from the call initially, but after about two years finally surrendered. After training for a few years at his home church, he felt lead of the Lord to start a church in Seagrove NC. The building was secured in Feburary of 2005. After about four weeks of renovating the property and knocking on hundreds of doors with the help of many precious friends and co-labours, the first service of the Lighthouse Baptist Church was held. Starting with just his family, the work in Seagrove has been greatly blessed of the Lord. Bro. Michael graduated from Calvary Baptist Bible College in King NC in 2013. He is married to Rikki Beth Poindexter and they have five children: Seth, Julianna, Lydia, Jacob & Micah.
