About Us

William and Dora Cruz, upon taking their marriage vows, also agreed that they would spend the rest of their married life ministering to the poor. That has been their successful mission since 1952 and continues to this day.

Pastor William, Dora and their children have planted and brought to fruition successful missions in different locations throughout the United States and Puerto Rico; most recently, the Beth-El Mission and the Good Samaritan Mission, in Wimauma, FL.

Once learning of the plight of so many of the farm-workers and their families in Florida, in 1982, Pastor Bill and Dora pledged to do all they could to help. That same passion has driven them at this time to establish, with the assistance and association of St. John the Divine Episcopal Church, The Lord’s Lighthouse Ministry, Inc, of Ruskin, Florida. Pastor Bill was asked if he was not yet ready to retire and he responded, “I did not know that one could ever retire when called to the ministry.”
