A network of Evangelical Free Churches committed to church planting in the greater Chicagoland area.The movement has grown out of a desire to see the gospel spread throughout our region. We believe that Christ will use us far more effectively together than any one of our churches alone.
The Evangelical Free Church of America is an association of autonomous churches united around the same theological convictions. The EFCA exists to glorify God by multiplying transformational churches among all people.
The Great Lakes District of the EFCA includes Florence, Kentucky, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan's Lower Peninsula and Eastern Upper, Western Ohio
Lakeland Church planted LifeSpring Community Church in October of 2010 and is one of LifeSpring's partners in ministry.
