    These men volunteer their time and energy to pour into the heart of the church and ensure that we are fulfilling our mission to win, build, and send.

  • The Deacons

    Many of the day to day ministries of Lake Cities are run by our deacons- a group of women and men who oversee various teams such as Children's Ministry, Hospitality, and Outreach.
