Becoming a partner is an important part of solidifying your commitment to the local body of Christ. Partnership brings great benefits to both the individual as well the entire church. The reason why we love partnership versus what you might have experienced in other churches...ie. membership, is because membership carries with it the idea of "what do I get from the organization?", while partnership carries the idea of "what do I bring to the organization?" We believe we are called to come together to commit to a partner relationship with the church to accomplish a big vision. The process to becoming a Lakeland Partner involves two simple steps.
Step 1: Complete the Partners Application
Each candidate must submit an application prior to interviewing with a pastor or overseer. The information requested on the application includes:
- Contact information
- LCC's Core Values
- Previous church experiences
- Signed LCC Covenant Partner Application
If you are interested in taking that next step and becoming a Lakeland Partner, please click here and complete the form.
Step 2: Interview with Pastor
Meet one-on-one with a pastor or overseer of LCC for 30-45 minutes to discuss your application. Our goal is to get to know your journey of faith better and to encourage you to take the next steps of connection (e.g. small group, serving in a ministry, etc.) This is also a great opportunity for you to ask questions about LCC. After this interview you will be notified of your acceptance as a church partner. Please contact the church office to setup an appointment (262-245-4567).
