It’s hard to believe that it’s been almost a year since I began my time here with you! As a member of the media arts team, I’ve appreciated every minute of that time and I’ve truly enjoyed getting to know and work alongside many of you. Now, as I get ready to begin my second year with you, I’m excited to step into a completely new role as your Online Minister. When COVID-19 hit, Lakeview decided not to shutdown completely but rather take our worship services online. In doing so, over the last couple of years we’ve seen a noticeable and continued growth of viewers that take part in our weekly services via streaming. As a result, it’s become clear that this growing audience needs to be ministered to effectively and made to feel welcomed, included and most importantly valued as members of our Lakeview family. That’s largely what I’ll be doing in this role and I’m grateful and humbled by the opportunity. I’m looking forward to making a real impact in this new ministry (and new territory) for the church as I feel it’ll play an important role in the church’s mission moving forward.
