Why Lakelands?

The Lakelands Institute formed out of necessity.  With no time to prepare, churches had to move their ministries online with no budget and few resources.  Our courses are led by clergy and church professionals who know what it means to lead a local church.  We’ve all had to pull off miracles with limited resources and have come up with solutions when budgets were thin.  We came together for such a time as this.

Why Now?

Can you remember a time when church leaders were required to pivot so quickly and acquire a skill set they never before considered necessary?  Neither can we.  Leaders are struggling for survival, knowing that a challenge like this has not occurred in our lifetimes. With experience leading through transition, tech skills, and a vision for the whole church, we feel like we were made for this moment.  You were too. So let’s do this!
