Learn More About Us

Tracey and Jennifer were called to the Glenwood Iowa area in 2017 from across the river in SE Nebraska 20 miles away.  They are joined by their daughter Jocelyn and their two Golden Retrievers on their acreage in the Loess Hills.  They love their chickens, ducks and other farm animals; as well as their strolls through the forest in the bluffs.  They enjoy gardening and providing for others in their abundance. God put the Colgrove’s on a mission from the moment they stepped foot in SW Iowa.  Tracey and Jennifer helped to plant a church in East Mills County where a healthy gospel preaching, Spirit filled church was greatly needed.  Tracey started a mens’s group in his church, and later started a kingdom mens’ group in near by Red Oak. Tracey was called shortly after to serve the church in a Pastoral residency capacity.  He has just finished his 2 1/2 year stay at the church that is thriving on the other side of the county.  The Colgrove’s, from the day they moved here have felt a burden for the people of SW Iowa, especially the Glenwood area.  Tracey and Jen have lead a small group in the Glenwood area since 2018, and Tracey has also started a mens’s group last September in Glenwood. Jen also currently attends a women’s bible study. The Colgrove’s are now stepping into planting a new kind of church, a marketplace ministry for the people.  A place where you can grab a great cup of coffee and roll, and have an amazing conversation with those from the surrounding area.  A place that your not treated as a customer but as family.  Where you walk in and feel like you are in the comfort of your home.  Tracey and Jennifer hope The Light House Cooperative will be a place where the gospel is regularly spoken, where the love of Christ is regularly shared, and where Jesus is the light that shines brightly out into a community in need, so the darkness fleets.  We are so thankful and blessed that you may be considering partnering with us.  Whether it be financial, prayer, or another type of gift; God has blessed us over the years with such giving people as ministry partners.  God bless you!

Our Programs & Who We Serve

Southwest Iowa can be a spiritually dark and oppressed area in the midwest. We are called to love and serve the people in this bedroom community near the Omaha-Council Bluffs Metro.  Glenwood is also the seat of Mills County Iowa.  The city is growing because of it’s location near the metro, and has close-by amenities; but all the small town charm. There is poverty, addiction, and brokenness that abounds in SW Iowa. Matthew 5:14-16 We want to be the light of Jesus, and a place that builds relationships based on trust and kindness. We hope to put discipleship and mentorship at the forefront of who we are and what we do at The Light House. We will have a regular prayer room accessible to all, and multiple regular small groups to support those in the community.  We want to come alongside the churches and support them in the Glenwood, Mills County area as a non denominational ministry house.

Pray with us

As we continue to move into our location for The Light House and prepare one of our home bases in Glenwood, SW Iowa in Mills County; we are asking for prayers for full provision in coming months for the ministry.   We need to furnish the ministry house on the downtown square however God see's fit. By donations of new or used furniture, as well as financial provision.  We need prayers for financial provision for rent and utilities as well as miscellaneous items for start up costs, prior to March.

We are also praying for ministry partners to step out in support for our prayer room, helpers for coffee and food, cleaners, and teachers and ministry leaders to step out.

Last we are praying that The Light House Cooperative is an active outreach in the community and that the Holy Spirit is a guiding light in leading the harvest, as well as laborers affiliated with the ministry actively going out and being a light to the community.
