Lead Pastor
Lakeside Community Church

Algoma, Wisconsin

Lakeside Community Church is a place where no one stands alone. From the moment you walk into a weekend worship experience you can see that these people love God and love each other. This is an incredible place for a Lead Pastor to serve!

Church Description 
The vision at Lakeside is “Adore Jesus. Make Disciples.” When you enter a weekend service you see a multi-generational and inter-generational gathering of people extending you a warm welcome. The worship and message are both very authentic and Bible-based, and taught in a way that makes God’s Word applicable to our daily lives and not just for Sundays. Lakeside CC knows that every church is unique and has a unique “churchprint.” Lakeside is an externally focused church that is highly concerned with those who are not yet there, but also genuinely caring for those who call Lakeside home. Lakeside is a Bible-centered church with a love for the Word of God.

Nestled on the shore of Lake Michigan is Algoma, a quaint, rural community in Northeast Wisconsin. Whether you are looking to spend time on Lake Michigan fishing or boating, or strolling the sand beach and boardwalk, enjoying the many festivals, or just taking time to relax, Algoma is the place!
