About us

                                               Lakeside Christian Church of Shell Knob

Lakeside Christian Church is a non-denominational Christian church located next to beautiful Table Rock Lake in Shell Knob, Mo.


The best way to describe our Church body is Love:

  We love serving and sharing the love of Jesus with the children of Shell Knob and their families.

  We love inviting our neighbors to our annual Thanksgiving and Easter and Christmas Eve services

  But we mostly love introducing people, young and old, to the saving grace of Jesus Christ.


Lakeside Christian Church was established for the purpose of "bringing people to Jesus Christ and Membership in His family, developing them to Christ-like Maturity, and equipping them for their Ministry in the church and life Mission in the world, in order to Magnify God's name." Our purpose statement reflects both the Great Commandment (Mathew 22:37-38) and the Great Commission (Mathew 28:18-20).


Mission and Core Values (beliefs):

Our Mission is to make more and better followers of Jesus Christ. To help us accomplish our mission, we trust in the following core values…

1. The Bible as God’s Word (2 Timothy 3:16-17).

Senior Pastor

My name is David Prestridge, the Lead Pastor here at Lakeside Christian church. I have a wife, Tracy, who I have been married to 20 years and four kids later. We are Floridians that were trained from Florida Christian College. Our passion is for evangelism and discipleship for all ages. We have ministered across the lake in kimberling city, across the united states in inner city L.A. and across the world in Crimea ukraine. As of lately, we have been praying that God’s will be done here on earth and in Shell Knob as it is in heaven. I have been a skateboarder all my life. Tracy and I have done childrens ministry, youth ministry, inner city and rural country ministry. I love the movie Goonies, Pokemon Go with my wife and trail hiking with my family. I believe my greatest attributes are encouragement, praying, and listening. I love telling stories that will give God great glory. But even more than that I love following God's will and let God create testimonies through me and my family only he can get glory for. We hold on to restoration Movement principles and are following God’s guidance into a reconciliation lifestyle.
