Our Mission

Lighthouse On-Air Since 1929…

Lighthouse is a not-for-profit radio station, owned and operated by the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Newfoundland, and operates under license from the Canadian Radio and Telecommunications Commission. Operating within the restrictions placed upon it under the terms of its license, Lighthouse’s mission is to provide a Christian alternative to the commercial radio stations within its coverage area, providing Christian music and inspiring messages from a wide variety of sources, compatible with its philosophy of bringing the good news of salvation and Christ’s soon coming to both the churched and unchurched.

Program Guide






Sherry L. Griffin – Station Manager

The lovely and talented lady of Lighthouse Radio, Station Manager, Sherry Griffin, has been involved in Christian radio for over 35 years. Sherry first got involved with Lighthouse as a teenager back in the 1980s. Her only complaint with working in radio is that her friends can’t hear her too well when she walks under a bridge!

Sherry is very proud of her Newfoundland heritage, and the fact that Lighthouse has such an amazing history in our province. She is thrilled at being a part of such a unique ministry, and getting the opportunity to meet so many wonderful people through Lighthouse. Her vision for Lighthouse as the ministry continues to grow, is to follow the Lord’s leading, and share God’s message of hope through Jesus Christ, with as many people as possible.

He comes originally from Saint John, New Brunswick and moved here in June of 1992 after meeting his wife, Sharon Oakley in Saint John. He arrived in Newfoundland for the first time on June 19, 1992…a year later on June 19, 1993 they became engaged, and another year later on June 19, 1994 they were married. Now they are the proud parents of three beautiful daughters, Amy, Emily and Katie.

Brian Matthews – Chief Engineer

Brian began his career in broadcasting at Lighthouse’s Freshwater Road studios when he was 15 — it was 1968. Since then he’s worked in commercial radio in Toronto, Port Hawksbury (Nova Scotia) and St. John’s. When he could, he volunteered his engineering services here at Lighthouse for some 30 years. In 2011, God returned him to his roots in broadcasting — Lighthouse — and he’s happy to be back. His role here is to take care of the technical side of Lighthouse, the equipment that provides the sound that you hear from your radio, Bell Satellite TV or computer. If you have any problems or questions about the technical side of Lighthouse, you can email Brian at
