Pastor Terry Neiman started Lakeside Fellowship Church in 1996 with a desire to reach the growing population of North Indian River County. With a few families, LFC began worship services at the North Indian River County Library Conference Room in Sebastian, FL. As growth continued, Lakeside Fellowship would move two more times before purchasing its current property in 2003. LFC soon afterwards acquired modular buildings as part of Phase 1. At last, a place to call home.
In 2006, Pastor Joe Maldonado contacted Pastor Neiman about First Baptist Church of Winter Beach joining the LFC family. An idea that would bring greater opportunities for ministry to our community which it did. Winter Beach brought resources that enabled Lakeside Fellowship to move into its current worship center(phase 2). A future phase 3 has been designed into our current worship center that would allow greater seating capacity.
Lakeside Fellowship Church is committed to loving God, loving His Word, and loving people. Through the years, God has blessed LFC in so many ways. Individuals, neighboring churches, and the Florida Baptist Convention have each helped to bring about Lakeside Fellowship Church. Today, the staff of LFC continues to be passionately committed to serving our Lord, His Church, and this community. They stand ready to minister to you and your family in any way they can.
