 Nanc and her husband, Dave, have been servant leaders at Lakeside for twenty years.  Their two children, 
 Anna and Jacob, were raised with the support and encouragement of our Lakeside family.  You’ll see Jacob
 on the Worship team at Lakeside, while Anna keeps up with another awesome church in Chicago where
she currently resides.  Dave serves as a Pastor/Elder at Lakeside and is part of the Teaching Team.  Together, Dave and Nanc serve as Youth Leaders with a special heart for our teens.

Nanc is our Kids Ministry Director and loves every minute of it!  Her focus is to help kids and their families find and follow Jesus.  With the support of several small and large group leaders, Nanc uses our BLAST (Bible Learning and Sharing Together) program to provide a safe and fun learning environment for kids to enjoy.  In her spare time she likes to read, but for the most part she stays busy with “fixer-upper” projects at home.


Phil grew up in Northern Ontario and started to attend Lakeside in 2011 after finding work in the automotive industry.  Phil's position at LBC is the congregational life director.  He met the love of his life, Christine, while attending LBC and got to know her better while attending the Young Adults life group.  Phil and Christine believe that community is an important component of christian living and want to encourage the church family at LBC to get to know and support one another better.





Joel has been attending Lakeside since 2001.  He met his wife Heather at Lakeside and they have 4 wonderfully energetic children - Riley, Nicklas, Justin and Anna. He enjoys curling up under a nice warm blanket and reading a good book....oh wait, that is Heather. While Joel does appreciate the importance of reading, he would prefer to do some rock climbing or go on an obstacle course run with friends. And when it is colder outside, a video game or two will do just fine.

Over the years he has been involved in various children's ministries and served as a deacon. Joel's position at LBC is the Co-Administrative Director along with Dave Thurmond. Together they are responsible for overseeing the various support ministries of the church.



Dave has been involved in ministry at Lakeside since the early 80's.  He has served in various capacities and is currently one of the pastor elders and leads a Life Group.  Dave has been married to his wife Bonnie for over 50 years.  Dave and Bonnie are the parents of 4 children, grandparents of 10, and recently the great grandparents of one.  Dave is a General Motors retiree and his primary hobby is wood working.
