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 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.

Global Leadership Network
Lakeshore is also a part of the Global Leadership Network, a community who is committed to learing from each other and using our influence to accomplish God's purpose on earth.
