Rev. Jonathan Yarboro
In 2000, I left my job as a construction foreman and coppersmith to return to undergraduate school and then proceed to seminary. I graduated from Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary in 2006 at the age of 40 and began seeking a church call. That search led me to First Presbyterian Church, Wetumpka.
One of the many wonderful members of the church at that time was Grace Bishop. Grace served on the Lighthouse board for many years and got me involved. I felt at home with the mission of the agency and have served as a board member since 2008. I am married to Alicia, who teaches Social Studies in the Elmore County Special Education program. Our daughters Stanton and Josephine keep us in line and accompany me to some Lighthouse functions.
President of Russell Construction of Al, Inc since 1983 . Graduated from AU in 1976 and worked my first “real job” at Lighthouse for three years. Married to Carlyn Russell and have Josie (17) and twins Stevie and Sadie(11). I am extremely proud of the work done every day by the Lighthouse staff making a positive difference in the lives of our clients. The confidence the Board has in the staff and management team of Lighthouse motivates each of us to do more to reach the goals set for the organization to enhance Lighthouse’s ability to help our clients even more. 2013 will be a monumental year in the progression of Lighthouse with a new home , new strategic plan and enhanced programs. Thanks to everyone at Lighthouse for their professional work standards , ethics and sincere desire to help others while supporting your families.
