 KIDS MINISTRY
 NANCY RELPH

 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.
 
 

CONGREGATIONAL LIFE

JOEL HOOTON

586-944-5870

Joel has been attending Lakeside since 2001. Over the years he has been involved in various children's ministries and served as a deacon. As the Congregational Life Director, he hopes to inspire and encourage everyone to grow stronger in Christ by sharing of experiences, meeting needs and living life together.

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.
