The dream of Lakeside initiated with Todd Gentry. With time, this dream grew and spread as it was shared with others. God laid a burden on the hearts of these church planters. The dream was prayed about, and several families committed to plane the new church. These 32 people met together for three months to pray, study, give and plan. On January 12, 1997, the firs assembly was held @ Boren Elementary School in Mansfield. It was the first church to meet in a MISD facility.
Lakeside continue to dream. The church built and occupied its first building in 1999. The church is currently debt free. Lakeside has gone on to plant other churches and continues to further the kingdom of God in a variety of ways.
