Lakeshore is an independent church that is both self-governing and led by the Staff for strategic planning, the Elders for spiritual oversight, and the Trustees for the stewarding of our finances. While we are independent, we voluntarily affiliate with two movements.
Converge Worldwide is a movement of churches working to help people meet, know and follow Jesus. Converge does this by starting new churches, strengthening existing churches, and supporting missionaries who spread the Good News of Jesus Christ around the world. Lakeshore is a part of the Converge Mid-Atlantic District.
Willow Creek Association
Lakeshore is also a part of the Willow Creek Association, a national movement of like-minded churches that is committed to a singular idea: that inspired, encouraged, and equipped Christian leaders create thriving local churches that redeem their communities for Christ.
