The Bible uses different word pictures to describe the church – a family, a body, a flock, and more. Each illustration points to one central truth: The church is designed to be a community of disciples who go all-in on a big vision together. In today’s world, it is not uncommon for someone to move from church to church with minimal investment. The result? A “lose-lose.” An individual not only stops short of realizing their full, God-sized impact but the church also misses out on furthering the mission with that person’s help. At Lakeland, we want to change that! We exist to lead people to follow Jesus, be changed by Jesus, and commit to the mission of Jesus…because lives are at stake! By becoming a Lakeland Partner, you not only take an important step as a disciple of Jesus but you also make a covenant commitment to bring your story, passions, and generosity to help this dream become a reality! This is the “win-win” that God had in mind for His Church. Are you ready to take your next step in becoming a Lakeland Partner? Get started below!”
