In his words, “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. We are fully present in the belief that it is the gospel of Jesus Christ which provides the ultimate answers to mankind’s questions.”

He extends a personal invitation to everyone to come and experience this journey with us at Lakehills. What awaits you, he says, “Is a family of friends full of the grace and the presence of Jesus.”
