Sadly, we learned today that the Converge Northeast Trustees did not accept the Hobby Lobby offer to purchase Lakeside, but instead selected another buyer. While we are disappointed in this news, we are confident in God’s greater purpose and plan.

It has been a great privilege talking with so many of you over the past several months. The amazing stories of God’s transforming work in your lives while at Lakeside were a great encouragement. We are proud of the caliber and character of Lakeside family. We praise God for what he has done in and through the Lakeside ministry over the past 40 years.

During these 40 years, thousands of people committed their lives to Jesus Christ; lifelong friendships were formed; and many were called into ministry. We pray that you will always cherish your time at Lakeside and seek to serve His kingdom building work by advancing the Gospel of Jesus Christ, especially among youth and families.

We are deeply grateful for the faithful prayers and hard work of the Lakeside for Christ board, prayer team, and marketing team. We are especially grateful to Hobby Lobby for generously stepping forward with a $1.2 million bid for the Lakeside property

We do not have any information about the buyer or the purchase price at this time.

Thank you again for your prayers and support.

In the precious name of Jesus Christ,

Lakeside for Christ
