  • How can I express into words how incredible this place is! My sweet wife and I drive down every year out of state 10 hours to attend the Spark Marriage Conference. We love so much the Marriage ministry at Lakewood. We love the Brights! Such great teachers! We love the Marriage classes so much. Pastor Joelโ€™s teaching to so inspiring! We meet him in person after service, he had such a humble spirit. This place is really real! Even better than on TV, in person.๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ๐Ÿ– We highly recommend Lakewood so much!
  • The church always has a nice temperature however I bring a sweater just in case. I love after each service the book store sells a CD of the service. The praise team always sings the songs how they are played on the radio so they are easy to sing along with. The screen/video displays are clear and make it easy to see the speaker no matter where you sit. The greeters in the front always are ready to shake your hand and welcome you.
