Elders & Staff
At Lakewood Baptist Church, we exist to glorify and enjoy God by making disciples of Jesus Christ. Our elders lead the congregation toward greater spiritual maturity and Christlikeness (Ephesians 4:11-14) as our staff works to spur the congregation on in Christ-exalting, God-glorifying worship (Psalm 150).
