Les Everett

Group Leader, 50+ Life Group

Les was born and raised in Asheboro, North Carolina. He loves the inclusiveness, diversity, and the spirit of joy and love he finds at the Lighthouse. If Les could travel anywhere, he would go to Africa. Les finds that travelling is a wonderful cultural experience, and he loves it! But more than that, this desire reflects his primary interest and hobby in tracing his ancestry and family history. 

Denice Chiles

Group Leader, Couples Life Group

Denice was born and raised on the south side of Chicago.  She loves Lighthouse because it’s the only church that she has ever attended where she is welcomed as her true self without conditions or silence. Denice’s favorite movie is The Godfather, and if she could travel anywhere, she would go to Thailand. An interesting fact about Denice is that her great aunt is Loraine Hansberry who wrote A Raisin in the Sun.
