Our mission is to provide students with a life-transforming week which will inspire them to attain the skills needed to become diligent craftsmen, reaching the highest level of excellence in their work and life. We desire to provide a platform where students and masters will share ideas and explore new and strategic ways to be God’s image-bearer in today’s culture.

The 2020 Lamplighter Guild will be held entirely at the Lamplighter Campus and surrounding area. Experience the ambiance of God's creative beauty amidst the rolling hills of Western New York and the charming 18th-century architecture of the Lamplighter Campus.
In Proverbs 22:29 we read, “Seest thou a man diligent in his work? He shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before obscure men.” Through diligence we can achieve a high standard of excellence in our unique God-given abilities, attracting others and opening opportunities for a successful and satisfying career.
To passionately pursue excellence for the glory and enjoyment of God, we must seek out individuals who have walked in the presence of God, attractively reflecting His image. In Exodus 36, we find the inspiring descriptions of Bezaleel and Aholiab the craftsmen:
Do you have a heart that has been stirred up to come to do the work? We are here to invest in you, as you faithfully develop your skills and become empowered with His presence (Psalm 16:11). One of the week’s highlights will be early morning devotions, as we consider how and why the Scriptures are foundational to a successful and satisfying life (Joshua 1:8,9).
All who attend The Lamplighter Guild can expect significant spiritual enrichment as they experience the presence of God in a unique and powerful way.
Bezaleel and Aholiab and every craftsman in whom the LORD has put skill and intelligence to know how to do any work in the construction of the sanctuary shall work in accordance with all that the LORD has commanded. And Moses called Bezaleel and Aholiab and every craftsman in whose mind the LORD had put skill, everyone whose heart stirred him up to come to do the work.
