Though he was born and raised a Muslim and later became an atheist, Pastor Rimi encountered Jesus in a radical, supernatural way. He first responded to God’s call to ministry in 2008 and has since worked in several churches and served as a missionary both in America and overseas. While he was a part of The Lighthouse Church family in years past, God brought him back to lead here in the fall of 2019. He considers it his greatest privilege to watch God’s love change lives. Rimi holds an MA from the University of the Nations, an MDiv from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and a PhD from the University of Birmingham (UK). When he’s not ministering to the community or teaching classes at Alvernia University, he spends most of his free time going on small adventures with his family and friends while attempting to be serious.
