After serving as a Senior Pastor during the first 14 years after Gene graduated college, he realized a traditional denominational approach to today’s culture wasn’t reaching people and most denominations weren’t changing. So Gene stepped down from ministry and started a business career which the Lord has blessed.
Gene and Kaye answered God’s call to start Lake Shores Church after much prayer in 2009. Lake Shores Church first met in Lakeside pavilion then moved to Marble Falls High School where it remained until God provided in a miraculous way with our current building at 700 Hwy 281 in Marble Falls. After a major remodel in 2018, we moved into our current facility. BUT Lake Shores Church has never been about the building it is and always will be about the people of God answering his call to serve.
Gene combined his experience in the business world and his incredible preaching gifts to help lead Lake Shores Church and deliver the Sunday message. Gene’s perspective took into account that we all have many demands on our lives including family, work and our health. Thus Gene’s sermons focused on how to live our faith during all these activities.
Gene led Lake Shores to make a difference in the community, and that is the foundation for our ministries today. We want people to make a difference in their families, their jobs, and their community by being the salt and light in the world.
Gene and Kaye felt God leading them to step down from his role at Lake Shores Church in 2020 after eleven years of faithfully teaching the word of God and casting the vision for the congregation at Lake Shores Church. We will forever be grateful to all that they did for the Kingdom of God and for our congregation.
