We are excited to officially announce and welcome our new Senior Pastor Sterling Edwards by an affirmation of our church membership. We welcome Sterling and his family to Lake Shore Baptist Church and the Lake Cities community!

I have had the opportunity to serve in several Southern Baptist Churches over the last 28 years as a Student Pastor, Lead Pastor, Church Planter, and Church Planting Catalyst with the North American Mission Board.  The focus of my ministry has been to make disciples and plant churches, seeking to raise up leaders and reach people in our community.  Our family spent 13 years serving in Long Island and Brooklyn planting and revitalizing churches.  Recently, I served as a church planting catalyst with the North American Mission Board in Phoenix, Arizona.  After serving as missionaries and church planters, we are happy to return to Texas and serve as Senior Pastor. We believe that we have reached a time in our lives and ministry where we are looking to settle in one community for the next 20-25 years of our lives and ministry, establishing a strong base for children and grandchildren.  As we seek what God has in store, we know for certain that we desire to love, serve, and pursue disciple-making with a congregation that desires a shepherd and leader.We appreciate the opportunity to explore where and how God is leading.
