Lakeland Description:
Lakeland is a non-denomination bible church located in the heart of Walworth County, WI. Its location is a blessing in the sense that it draws from all the surrounding cities. (Population of approximately 50,000 within 10 miles of Lakeland) We’re also ideally located about an hour from Madison, Milwaukee, and Rockford, IL. Lakeland is less then 14 years old and in those years has accrued land, has built a beautiful building, and has a solid base of families who’s lives have been changed by the power of Jesus. Lakeland is purposeful in reaching the unengaged, introducing them to Jesus, and growing as His followers. We don’t like to beat around the bush and play church, but instead motivate and activate His followers to go and be the church. Just over a year ago Lakeland hired it’s current Sr. Pastor Josh Amstutz. Since his arrival the church has grown significantly. Pastor Josh and his wife Lisa definitely are an attraction to young families as they have 7 young children of their own…and no they don’t home school. Lakeland has a contemporary, down to earth, edgy, raw, and relevant feel. We’re not afraid to make mistakes and take risks as the Holy Spirit leads us. If that flavor sounds like you, you might be the right person to join our team.
