Lakeside Church


Brian Bulger
Pastor of Support & Recovery

My wife, Barb (1963-2018) and I have been involved in various ministries since coming to Lakeside in 1990. We have two awesome boys, Lucas and Elliot! We have a great time together mountain biking, boating, tubing, skiing and doing life together with close friends.

Daniel Bell
Site Pastor, Lakeside Downtown

I love leading people to encounter God and experience his life-changing power in and beyond our gatherings. I am grateful to be able to share in this journey with my loving wife, Brianna, and my three daughters. In my spare time I love conversations over good coffee and meals, visiting parks and playing guitar.

Elizabeth Lengyel
Griefwalk Coordinator

Combining my passion to serve and mentor others with years of experience as teacher, facilitator, coach, counsellor and human resources, I am the Program Coordinator for our Griefwalk Ministry. My greatest joys and treasures are my adult sons, Luke and Andy, and my dog Max.

Jacob Moore
Technical Manager

Having been a part of the Lakeside community my entire life, it was a blessing to join the staff team in 2013. I oversee the sound and video equipment in our venues, the online stream of our Sunday services and the network at both sites. I absolutely love this job and the amazing people I get to work with.

Jeff Groenewald
Executive Pastor

I have been attending Lakeside since 1993 along with my wife, Andrea. It’s a joy to lead at Lakeside, a place that I love, and a place that I’ve served at for many years. In addition, you’ll often see me on stage with the band. One of my long-time passions is serving on the worship team.

Johanna Kelly
Interim Director, Celebrate Recovery

My husband, Nicholas and I have been gifted with two beautiful daughters, Elizabeth and Kate. I am passionate about seeing people’s lives transformed through the power and grace of Jesus Christ and by living in authentic community!

Judy Lovell

My job here at Lakeside is to provide a clean facility. I love my job and I always have a smile while cleaning. I’ve made some great friends who come to the church.

Kathleen Elliott
Communication Manager

I felt God leading me to Lakeside many years before I actually walked through the doors, but I never imagined He would use me like He has. Throughout the years my role at Lakeside has changed, but I firmly believe I am here by no accident. I absolutely love coming to work every day!

Kevin Lloyd
Financial Controller

My wife, Mary and I are happy to make Lakeside our spiritual home, believing God led us here just over three years ago. God has blessed us with two independent children, Ryan and Katie. As Financial Controller I use my knowledge, experience and gifts from working in the financial sector for over 10 years.

Larry Sosnoski
Maintenance Supervisor

My background of owning and operating two auto repair shops helped prepare me for my role here at Lakeside, which has been my church home since 1994. I’m the father of two sons, Joe and Duane, and the happy grandfather of six. In my down time I enjoy sci-fi movies, playing in my garden and fishing.

Marc Gagnon
Teaching Pastor

My greatest passion is to create environments where people gather together to explore what it means to know and experience the power of Jesus in their life. Tryphena and I have two young children. Being a father means my hobbies include drinking coffee, folding laundry, and naps (in that order). 

Marla Dobson
Lakeside Childcare Centre Supervisor

I have been at LCCC since opening day on Sept. 8, 2015, and in 2018 I transitioned into the role of supervisor. I enjoy fostering a strong sense of belonging for the staff and families. My husband and I have been married for 15 years and live with our three kitty cat furbabies. We love to play modern board games together!

Melissa Goetz
Family Ministries Coordinator (On Leave)

My heart is so passionate for kids to come to know and love Jesus and it is an absolute blessing to be part of the Lakeside Kids team! My husband and I share our home with our kids, our dog, Rosie, and our cat, George! Some of our favourite family activities are hiking, biking, and reading together.

Mike Tabet
Youth Pastor

I am convinced that God has brought me to Lakeside to help mold and shape our young people into wise and bold followers of Jesus. Youth Ministry has been my passion since I was about 10 years old. In my free time I like spending time with my family and friends, watching the Maple Leafs, Raptors, and  Blue Jays.

Pauline Whyte
Logistics Director

I have been on staff using my creative talents and abilities since 1993. I met my husband Jim in college and we were married in 1987. We have two adult children – Justin and Katie. In my free time I am often creating something with paper, fabric or food. We are avid sports fans year round.

Robyn Elliott
Pastor of Spiritual Growth & Leadership Development

As far back as I can remember I’ve been wrestling with Bible texts and faith, and it’s still one of the things I’m most passionate about. Getting to walk with people in spiritual direction and to encourage them in their gifting is a great thrill for me. Come by if you have interests in either of those areas. 

Sherra Lee Bridle
Administrative Assistant & Facility Coordinator

I provide administrative support to our executive pastor and oversee all facility rentals and room bookings. My husband, Dave and I have four grown daughters, two son-in-laws, one granddaughter, and a dog named Barney. I enjoy traveling, reading, volunteering, entertaining and coffee with friends!
