We are John and Marissa Sharbaugh, along with our two precious kiddos: Emma (9) and Jack (6). God has called our family to reach the whole world through international students and families at Iowa State University through LIFE - Lighthouse International Fellowship. We will be coming alongside veteran missionaries of over 30 years in this established ministry seeking to grow disciple-making disciples.

Check out this GREAT condensed article explaining ISM--

Iowa State University (Ames, Iowa) will host over 4,000 international students this year (a number that is growing every year). Many of these students come from countries where it is illegal for Christ to be proclaimed. We desire to show these students the love of God through relationship building, small group/one-on-one bible studies, English conversations, weekly Saturday dinners, involving them in the local church, and more.

We are commissioned missionaries of Calvary Baptist Church (Plainfield, IN) and partnering with Lighthouse International Fellowship (Ames, IA).
