Arise Church

creating a space for God's presence to arise

The Vision

The Arise Church seeks to create a space to host the presence of God for
personal transformation and power to  fulfill the great commission.

Our Motto

 We live to receive His presence in order to release His presence.

About Our Pastors 

Pastors Antione and Andrea Ashley are the Lead Pastors of Arise Church based in Deland, Florida  since June 2018. They were entrusted with Arise Church (formerly known as Lighthouse Church) from a wealth of preceding pastors, Paul Bryan (after 15 years), and David Walker (of over 30 years). As pastors of Arise Church, Antione and Andrea's driving passion is to intentionally host the presence of God until his presence and power fills the earth. The dream to create a place where God's presence can forever rest, resulting in God's people arising with the transformative power of the Holy Spirit and the gospel of Jesus Christ. They aspire to reach their community, city and world in a relevant yet proven way, living through values of holiness, knowledge of God's word, and bold demonstrations of God's power. They’ve been married since 2007 and live in Deland with their three beautiful boys—Gavin, Kobe, and Hallel.
