I am Ken Ellis and I’m a shepherd here at Lakeside. 


My wife, Danielle, and I were blessed to be a part of the Lakeside church plant over 25 years ago. The church first met in homes, then schools and then moved into our permanent building.  We enjoy being involved in the community of Mansfield. 


Danielle and I met in high school in England, and after moving to Texas,  where we established our roots, we raised our family. We both serve in various areas at Lakeside and enjoy growing with the families that God brings through the doors.  We have two married sons and a daughter who is studying at Abilene Christian University.  We are blessed with two granddaughters and a grandson that live locally. 


We enjoy traveling the world and learning new things about different cultures, however our hearts are always back home in the Mansfield area. We love the family atmosphere and the sense of shared responsibility that we feel here. We’ve worshiped at many places but none compare to Lakeside and the blessings we enjoy while serving here. As we strive to be more like Jesus every day, we look forward to sharing the good news message.


Hello!  I’m Russell Henrichs, one of the elders serving the Lakeside Church of Christ.  My family has been members of Lakeside since early 2009.  We love the family-oriented atmosphere at Lakeside and the numerous friends we have made over the years.  We’ve enjoyed growing alongside our fellow Christians at Lakeside as they work to spread the Word to Mansfield and beyond.


I’ve been married to my best friend, Apryl, since 2002.  We have two children – Tess and Zach who have benefited tremendously from the wonderful Bible teaching that takes place at Lakeside.


Our family has grown through the many ministries taking place at Lakeside, and we aim to serve alongside Lakeside to continue these ministries to the members of Lakeside and the community at large.  We hope you’ll join our Lakeside family, and we look forward to getting to know you better!



Greetings, I am Cornell Williams, one of the elders here at Lakeside church of Christ. My family relocated to Texas for Michigan in 2007 and we visited several area churches. After visiting Lakeside, we did not go any further. 


We fell in love with the warm family environment and made it our church home. 


I have been married to Vivian since 1988 and we have two children, Jonathan and Krysten. 


I invite you to join me and sharing God’s messages as we continue to grow spiritually.
