Who We Are

Lafayette Community Church is a community of faith committed to helping people at any point on their spiritual journey discover full life in Christ.

Jeff and Jen Mikels moved to Lafayette, Indiana in 2006 to launch a church that would reach people far from God and disconnected from His family. Since then Lafayette Community Church has devoted itself to helping those same people discover the life they were designed to live!

We'd love it if you could join us!

Our Services

What are services like?
Our music is vibrant, our services are casual, and our pastor is straightforward. Simple messages take the text of the Bible and explain it in simple language to make it practical and relevant to modern day life. We believe the Bible has the keys to living life the way God designed us to live it, and we present the Bible with the clarity and sincerity it deserves.

What is the community like?
We are a mix of graduate students, young families, and mature couples who are committed to being a family together.

What if I'm not a Christian?
You'll be more than welcome. We'll sing songs that feel like songs you've heard on the radio, but the words will be on the screen so if you don't know them, you'll at least know what we're singing about. We'll hear a message from our pastor on a practical topic from the Bible, and we'll ask you to fill out an information card if you want to. There's no pressure to do anything you don't want to do, and you can feel free to wear jeans or whatever else you feel comfortable in.

Jeff Mikels

Jeff Mikels

Born in Colorado, and raised in California as the son of a Pastor, Jeff came to the midwest for college and received a Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics and Philosophy from Wheaton College. But don’t let the degree fool you. He’s not your typical anti-social math nerd! Jeff has always had a passion for helping others get closer to God, so after graduating, he and Jen moved to Denver where he completed the Master of Divinity program at Denver Seminary and was recognized by professors and peers for his gift of communicating the relevance of God’s Word for today both through personal counseling and public preaching. After spending five years in Chicago as a pastor, Jeff and his wife Jennifer followed God’s call to Lafayette in 2006 to plant a church on the southside of the city. Lafayette Community Church is now a thriving community of believers committed to helping people find full life in Christ.
