Join Our Team
Our Team consists of our staff and volunteers who make every worship experience happen. They are the ones who prep the coffee, play the music, control the lighting, care for the kids, and dozens of other important things to make our church a place where people who are far from God can come home. If you call our church home, we urge you to get involved and commit to serving on one of our teams at least once a month.
To join one of our teams, sign up to attend Discover Lakeside. It’s where we explain who we are as a church, learn about who you are as an individual God created, and find ways to help you get plugged in and assigned to a team.
Twice a week, families from around our city step into a food pantry to receive food to keep their children fed and their shelves stocked. We partner with the county food pantry network to provide some of their locations and volunteer staffing to make sure everything is ready for these families.
We have partnered with our county jail ministries to bring the message of hope in Christ into our local jail. Through the work that they have accomplished, hundreds of inmates have found freedom in Christ and dozens have been baptized behind the fences and bars of these institutions.
Addiction is one of the hardest battles that many of us will ever face. We work hard to partner with Celebrate Recovery to provide support and encouragement to those who are struggling with addictions.
In addition to these programs, we host events to give our people even more opportunities to serve our city.
Life For Youth Camp
Sometimes our mission is closer than we think. New York City is home to millions of people–the vast majority of whom don’t know Jesus. Our youth team has traveled to the big apple every year to build relationships with others there and to continue to provide events for neighborhoods in New York to share the love of Christ and His message of hope.
We recently sent a team to Central America to work with a local church. While our team was there, they helped build a single room school house for the village. Along with shoes and backpacks that were donated by our church back home, kids in this village are now receiving an education that is empowering and centered in Christ.
Through our strategic partnership with Blood:Water mission, we’ve sent over a hundred people to Africa to help drill new fresh water wells in areas where dozens were dying each year because of their inability to find clean drinking water. With these wells in place, many of these people who once feared sickness or death are now only a short walk away from safe, clean drinking water.
