Our community's vision is The Fulfilled Mission, to the Glory of God, as the body of Christ is made more effective through the Spirit-led, strategic, and secure use of information and communication technologies.
Back in 1999, it was just Tim and Greg launching this adventure. Tim had his minivan and laptop, and Operation Mobilization USA had agreed to allow LightSys (and Greg) to be based out of its office. Today, our team has grown quite a bit and we're excited about what the future holds.
Meet our team, including full-time staff and LightSys Associates Network members.
How We Serve...
For many reasons, we've thoughtfully and prayerfully chosen to serve missions organizations and missionaries by being a faith mission community ourselves, depending on the Lord for our finances and provision day by day. As a result, we are able to offer our help, serving missions (large and small!) and missionaries free of charge.
Here's more about our Method of Ministry.
We are an evangelical Christian ministry, dedicated to being united around essential Christian doctrines as expressed in Scripture. We see the purpose of these essentials not as placing importance on "being right" just for the sake of correctness, but rather as helping people truly know Jesus.
Interested in knowing more? Read our Statement of Faith.
LightSys is a fellowship of believers within the worldwide body of Christ. As such, community is important to us, as we fill our niche in the larger work of the church. Read more about our larger context, including the ICCM conference and community.
Ministry, Donations, and Accountability...
We are organized as a Georgia non-profit corporation, founded in February 1999 by Tim Young and Greg Beeley. Our main office is in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Because we are a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization under the U.S. Internal Revenue Code, contributions to LightSys are tax-deductible. We are governed by a six-member board of directors, only two of whom are LightSys staff members, ensuring we have an independent board of directors.

We file IRS Form 990 each year, which documents our activities and finances. You can find our most recent Forms 990, and other information about our ministry, at Guidestar, where we have a Gold Seal of Transparency.
