Lakehills is about people, real people, not just people always claiming to be right. This spirit of authenticity is not only attractive to our present culture but it also creates a climate in which real spiritual discovery can take place. I extend a personal invitation to everyone to come and experience this journey with us at Lakehills. What awaits you here is a family of friends full of the grace and the presence of Jesus.
“I am the resurrection and the life.” -John 11:25
Matthew 28: 1-4 says that Jesus came back from the dead and was now alive. That passage says that the earth felt the effects, the angel felt the effects, the guards felt the effects and the women felt the effects. My desire is that Lakehills Church feels the effects! What might that look like? Come and see and we will enter into the adventure together.
Damian grew up in Lake of the Pines near Auburn, CA and serves as the Worship Arts Pastor at Lakehills.
Throughout my years in the workplace, I’ve always gravitated to jobs that act as support or help to others. I truly believe we are here for a purpose: to love and help one another. My role as the church office administrator fits this natural trend in my life. While working to help keep our staff and facilities running smoothly, I enjoy my frequent interactions with Lakehills families as well as other community members and leaders.
I love kids interacting, conversing, and fielding their various questions like, “How did God write the Bible with no hands?” I have a passion to help families; seeing kids and parents build lifelong, strong family bonds and help each other discover who they are in Christ. My goal is to have a vibrant Children’s Department where kids and parents can’t wait to come and don’t want to leave. Since 1997, I’ve been involved in a variety of lay ministries but kept coming back to children. This is where I’m happy to belong!
Danny is honored to be part of this community and looks forward to seeing what Jesus will do in all our lives’ together.
Working with children is my passion and being able to do it in a musical, theatrical environment gives me great joy. With each KOK show it is inspiring to see the excitement in the children as the show starts to come together. I get to witness them applying Biblical principles that we are learning about to their lives. The impact that doing a show can have on a child, their parent or audience member gives me true satisfaction and purpose.
Throughout my years here at Lakehills I’ve been involved in a variety of areas: church dramas, women’s ministries, and Bible studies. In 2012, I started working in the church office as an assistant. This is a new area of involvement for me as I assist with various tasks including answering phones, updating attendance records, preparing staff reports and Sunday bulletins. I enjoy interacting with the families of Lakehills and am excited about my role.
I have a genuine love for children and am blessed to be a part of the Nursery. In the Nursery, we strive to let children know they are loved and valued by providing them with a nurturing environment and fun Bible-based and play activities so they can grow spiritually, physically, mentally and socially.
Due to the nature of my position, I am usually called upon during times of uncertainty or crisis. It is in these difficult times, that I want to share God’s love and facilitate an awareness of His presence. My passion is to affirm the dignity of every human being regardless of race, color or creed.
