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.



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.
