Meet our amazing staff and leaders

  • Craig Schill - Senior Lead Pastor

    Pastor Craig planted Lake Cities Community Church in 2007 after graduating with his master's of theology degree from Dallas Theological Seminary. Prior to this, Craig worked in the field of Human Resources in northern Arizona. His passions are preaching, mentoring, and the study of church leadership.

    In addition to pastoring, he teaches as an adjunct faculty member at DTS, having received his doctorate of ministry in advanced expository preaching in 2018. He has been married to his wonderful wife Tammy since 1990, and they have four children.

  • Robert Doleshal - Senior Pastor

    Robert Doleshal is our other Senior Pastor. He joined the staff of Lake Cities in 2020 as part of a merger between Lake Cities and Eastern Hills Baptist Church, where he had previously served as Senior Pastor.

    Robert and his wife Donna have three kids- Brianna, Abi, and Connor. He loves to teach the Word of God and to see people experience life change through walking with Christ.

  • Sam Allen - Lead Worship Pastor

    Sam joined the staff of Lake Cities in 2016 after moving back home to Texas from Nashville, TN. He oversees the worship, technology, and Celebrate Recovery ministries within the church.

    In addition to serving at Lake Cities, he is the front man of the Christian recovery band, Son Ship. Sam enjoys playing board games, looking forward to new Star Wars movies, and petting his cat. He has an amazing wife named Brooke and two young sons named Ezra and Asher.

  • Hunter Gibson - Next Gen Pastor

    Hunter has been in vocational ministry since 2011 and has enjoyed every minute of it! He joined the staff at Lake Cities in 2020 when the church merged with Eastern Hills Baptist Church and currently serves over children and youth.

    He was raised in Forney (go Jackrabbits!) and is a diehard Star Wars fan and loves movies in general- you can always count on him for having a movie quote on standby. He loves all things sports, but college football is his fav, with MLB coming in a close second.

  • Alex Bailey - Worship and Digital Pastor

    Alex was born and raised in DFW. He surrendered to Christ at age 11 and has attended and served in churches for most of his life. Before joining Lake Cities in 2020, Alex served as the Worship Pastor and Office Admin at Eastern Hills Baptist Church. He attended the Oasis School of Ministry and is currently completing an Associate of Arts with a focus in music at Eastfield.

    Alex enjoys jogging in the park, composing music, and Italian food (especially spaghetti w/ meatballs).
