History

 

Lakeside Baptist Church began as a mission of First Baptist Church, Rogers, Arkansas in 1978.  The first service was held in a mobile chapel on January 8, 1978 with fifty-five people in attendance.  Brother Ben Rowell, pastor of First Baptist Rogers, preached the first sermon.  In May of 1978, the mission called Robert Burk as pastor.  On February 22, 1981, Lakeside Baptist was constituted as a church. 

In August of 1980, Lakeside broke ground for its first building and dedicated the building on February 22, 1981.  In April of 1985, the church broke ground for a multi-purpose building and dedicated it on October 26, 1986.  In 2001, Lakeside built a mission in the Rocky Branch area and on October 7, 2001, Rocky Branch Baptist Church, held its first service. 

In its thirty-three years of existence, Lakeside has had four pastors.  Robert Burk, May 1978 to October 1988; Tom Gripka, May 1989 - October 1996; Gibbie McMillan, June 1997 to January 2003; and Scott Hill, December 2003 to present.
