Pastor Bobby Waitman serves as the lead pastor of Lake Church. Waitman has served as a lead pastor for 14 years and as a public school administrator for the past 20 years. His experience as a teacher, coach, youth pastor, principal, and superintendent has been very beneficial to him in the role of a servant leader. He met his wife of 26 years at Falls Creek, and she has served alongside him in music, children's, and youth ministries. They have two sons, Brecken, 23, and Brennan, 20. Bobby is passionate about the life transforming power of Jesus Christ. Waitman has felt a call to the Lake Texoma area for the past several years, and feels blessed to be able to take part in a church plant with Mark Williams, his long-time friend and partner in ministry. In his own words, "It is time for us to stop "going" to church and start "being" the church for a lost world."
Mark Williams serves as the worship pastor at Lake Church and Crossway First Baptist. He has been married for 30 years to his high school sweetheart Jamie Williams. He has 3 grown children, Justin, 30, Kayla, 28, and Caleb, 21. He has 4 grandchildren Landry, 8, Logan, 6, Cobee, 6, and Cavyn, 5. Throughout his 20 years in the ministry he has served in the roles of Worship Pastor, Sports Director, Senior Adult Pastor, and led multiple mission teams. Prior to that, he traveled with his brothers and cousin performing music. For several years he has felt a call to serve with his good friend Bobby Waitman and now the Lord has given him the opportunity to do so.
