who we are

"I rejoice with those who said, to me, "let us go to the house of the Lord."

We can't wait to meet you!

Here at Lakeview our mission is setting people free spiritually, emotionally, physically, and financially through Christ and His Word. God’s grace and what He has done in our lives compels us to reach out and share the Gospel with as many people as we can. The Gospel tells the story of God’s amazing love towards us and how He made a way for us to have a relationship with Him through Jesus Christ. We are being set free, and we invite you to experience that freedom with us!

Meet our staff

We believe that we are better together. Our staff has a blast serving Jesus, His people, and each other. Let us know how we can help you grow in your relationships, develop your gifts, and find success in your life.
