Lakeside is a twenty-four year old church of 2500 regular attendees with a weekend attendance over 1400. The main focus of our church is helping broken people find wholeness and has recovery ministries that are critical to this focus. Last year Lakeside bought an old church building and launched Hope House which is a growing poverty alleviation ministry in the inner city of Guelph. Later this year we will be planting our first site known as Lakeside Downtown and we have hired an experienced church planter to do it. There are 175-200 students who attend one of our Next Gen ministries and 300 children who are part of Lakeside Kids. Lakeside has a large facility with significant space dedicated to Student and Children's ministry. You would be part of a staff of more than 30 full and part-time team members, many of them who have a long tenure at Lakeside and who would say that we have great staff chemistry.
