Children & Youth

Jimmy and Jessica Dodson

Jimmy has been attending Lakeside since he was a child. Growing up attending Lakeside’s kids' ministries has given him a real calling to pour into the current children at Lakeside Bible Chapel. Jimmy has served for several years at Lakeside by leading a life group, running audio/visual equipment, teaching, and now leading children’s ministries. Jimmy and Jessica have been married for three years and really enjoy serving together in ministry.

Jimmy and Jessica were blessed with their beautiful daughter Cayden in February of 2017. They are realizing how fast life can change with the new addition to the family. Nights of hanging out, disc golfing, going to the movies, or cruising around in their Jeep have happened less frequently since Cayden’s birth, but they couldn’t be happier to take on the new challenges that raising children will bring.

586-944-5870


Joel has been attending Lakeside since 2001. Over the years he has been involved in various children's ministries and served as a deacon. As the Congregational Life Director, he hopes to inspire and encourage everyone to grow stronger in Christ by sharing of experiences, meeting needs and living life together.


He met his wife Heather at Lakeside and they have 4 wonderfully energetic children - Riley, Nicklas, Justin and Anna. He enjoys curling up under a nice warm blanket and reading a good book....oh wait, that is Heather. While Joel does appreciate the importance of reading, he would prefer to do some rock climbing or go on an obstacle course run with friends. And when it is colder outside, a video game or two will do just fine.
