About Us

Lighthouse Trails Publishing, Inc. and Lighthouse Trails Research Project began in 2002. There are currently several authors, editors, news writers, web and computer technicians who work with Lighthouse Trails throughout North America plus a small on-site staff in NW Montana where the offices of Lighthouse Trails are located. We are not a non-profit 501 (c)3 government organization. However, we give away thousands of books, booklets, DVDs, articles, and other materials, which makes us a very unique publishing company.

In the spring of 2012, Lighthouse Trails celebrated its 10th year anniversary. In recognition of that, we wrote three articles that describe our early years and some of the experiences we had during that time. You may wish to read them to better understand who we are:

How Lighthouse Trails Began – Part One: “It was a dark and stormy night.”

Lighthouse Trails, the Early Years – Part 2 – “A Hot Topic” That Just Wouldn’t Go Away

Rick Warren Biographer, George Mair, Passes Away at 83 – The Rest of the Story


“Bringing light to areas of darkness” and “A light shining in the darkness”


That is really very simple: The Gospel of Jesus Christ. Because we believe that this Gospel – that Jesus died on the Cross to pay the penalty for man’s sins and that He arose on the 3rd day and has offered salvation freely to whosoever will come to Him – is the only means of eternal salvation for any person, our motive is to contend for that faith so that others may hear that Gospel and believe on it.


We have written a lengthy docrinal statement. You can read that by clicking here. The statement does not list everything we believe. In a nut shell, we believe the Bible is the inerrant, God-inspired, true and holy Word of God.

Note: Lighthouse Trails is a Christian publishing company. While we hope you will read the books we have published, we provide extensive research, documentation and news on our Research site, blog and newsletter at no cost with the hope they are a blessing to the body of Christ and a witness to those who have not yet accepted Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord.

2017—Lighthouse Trails Publishing changed from an LLC to a corporation in the State of Montana (now under the legal name, Lighthouse Trails Publishing, Inc.)

LTRP Note: Because Lighthouse Trails is a research project, we post news stories from several different sources in addition to articles from our trusted authors and ministries. These out-of-house news stories are for informational and research purposes and not necessarily as an endorsement for the source itself. As with everything that is read, whether on the Internet, in newspapers, or in books, Christian believers must always use biblical and godly discernment.
