Our Story


 Pastors Ray & Karen Brake


Both of us are graduates of Rhema Bible Training College, Tulsa, Oklahoma. We have four children and seven grandchildren.

While vacationing in Door County, God planted a vision to establish a new church in the Fox Valley Area.  For the next few years God would deal with us about pioneering a church in Appleton, Wisconsin.  In May 1998, Lakewoods Christian Center was established.  In December of 1998, Lakewoods Christian Center moved to it's current location at 800 N. Superior St., Appleton. 

We are dedicated to drawing people to Jesus Christ as well as connecting them to a deeper relationship and commitment to God and His Word.
