For even the Son of Man came not to be served, but to serve...

Mark 10:45

You did not get to Joint Base Lewis-McChord by accident, God brought you here!

As military folks and families, an all-knowing, all-wise, and all-loving God directs your steps. How awesome is that. It means God has a purpose and plan for your time here. He wants to do great things in you and through you while you are in the JBLM area. We understand the challenges of military members and families. Being separated from relatives and friends, coupled with the demands of military duty, can take its toll. We respect your struggles and want to do life with you. For this season, we would love to invite you to consider Lake City Community Church as your spiritual home. We love our Soldiers, Air Men, and military families. We’ve got some great opportunities to help you grow in your relationship with God and help you connect with a faith community as well as other military families.


REBOOT Combat Recovery helps veterans, service members and their families heal from trauma. REBOOT Combat Recovery specifically addresses military trauma.

This is for those who have experienced trauma before, during, or after their time in the military.

Military Support

Military life comes with unique challenges. Here are some of the military-focused Christian ministries we partner with to provide support to our military community.


Cadence International seeks to foster a community where active duty military at JBLM can find a place of belonging, connection, and growth in Christ. They do this through Bible studies, sharing meals and time together, serving alongside one another, and one on one discipleship. 


The Navigators are engaging with service members of JBLM to walk deeply with Jesus and train them to advance God's Kingdom through their natural, relational network. They do life-on-life discipleship in and through various gatherings throughout the week. For more information, contact Zach Abrams.

Leader Breakthru

One day we all leave the military, whether serving a few years or a lifetime. Making that transition can be challenging. Leader Breakthru coaching is designed to help walk you through major life transitions and formulate the best God-centered plans for your next chapter in life. For more information on coaching, contact Pastor Marc.

Officers' Christian Fellowship

The mission of Officers’ Christian Fellowship is to engage military leaders in biblical fellowship and growth to equip them for Christ-like service at the intersection of faith, family, and profession. Several groups meet on and off post. For more information, contact Pastor Marc.
