Who We Are

When someone mentions Lakeside Church we want certain things to come up in the conversation: words that characterize us individually and as a whole. We work under defining statements that are both part of our language and incorporated in what we do at Lakeside. This is the culture of our people and the impact we desire for our community.

We live… to glorify God by reaching up to him in worship; by reaching out to our neighbors outside the church; and by reaching in to our neighbors within the church.
We are on a mission… to transform as many people as possible into passionate and productive followers of Jesus.

We value…
Faith: We are committed to the Bible, through which God has revealed himself and called us to trust him. We are passionate about helping people trust in Jesus Christ and grow in their commitment to him.

Hope: We are convinced the gospel of Jesus Christ is filled with hope for the present and the future. We are passionate about communicating this good news with as many people as possible.

Brad Franklin

Brad Franklin

Brad Franklin is the founding pastor of Lakeside Church. He came to Folsom in 1987 as a church planter and began Lakeside with a telemarketing campaign. His ministry has been blessed and Lakeside continues to grow steadily offering several Sunday worship gatherings. He leads a team of dedicated pastors and ministry directors. Lakeside relocated to the present 28-acre site in Folsom in September of 2001. Before coming to Folsom, Brad served as a missionary in the Philippines, and in churches in Portland, Oregon and Scotts Valley, California. He received his Bachelors Degree in Religious Studies from Westmont College, Masters of Divinity Degree in Pastoral Ministry from Western Seminary and completed his Doctor of Ministry from Bethel Seminary in June 2002. Brad belongs to the Folsom Chamber of Commerce and is active in the annual National Day of Prayer Breakfast. Brad and his wife, Donna, are the parents of three children. When not at work, Brad plays men’s softball, runs occasionally in various competitions, plays hysterically bad golf and even jumped out of a plane (with a parachute). Brad has established the mission of Lakeside Church as transforming as many people as possible into passionate and productive followers of Jesus. He is leading the people of Lakeside in reaching up to God in worship, reaching out to neighbors in the community and reaching in to others within the church.
