Come As You Are


Worship and Youth Ministries

Tim Hanson, Minister of Worship

        Tim was born and raised in the South Bay Area.  After high school, he attended San Jose State University where he accepted Jesus Christ his freshman year.  Tim transferred to UC Davis with a degree in Business Management.  The Lord altered his business plans and led him into a two-year internship program focusing on Music Worship and Education along with discipleship.   It was while serving as an intern that Tim met his future wife, Pamela.  They married and moved to Auburn, California to serve as Minister of Worship and Education.  Their son, Eric was born while in Auburn. 

   Wanting to continue in the ministry, but also to focus more on education, Tim accepted a position in 1991 at Kings Christian School in Lemoore, California, as a fifth grade teacher.  Since the move to the Central Valley, Tim has also served at Lakeside Community Church as Worship Minister, overseeing the worship ministry through music, drama and special activities involving both adults and children.  Also while here in the Central Valley, their three daughters, Audrey, Emily and Natalie were born.  

   Along with his love for the Lord, his wife, and children, Tim enjoys playing guitar, singing, running, playing tennis, watching sports (especially baseball!), coaching and announcing for Kings Christian High School sporting events.  


Youth Minister, Bryan Savage

       Bryan was born in Cincinnati Ohio and grew up in the Phoenix area. Bryan accepted Jesus Christ while in high school and met his future wife, Kelly.  After high school, he joined the United States Navy,  married Kelly and moved to Washington State while serving. While in Washington, their son Eric was born. A Navy transfer would bring Bryan and his family to the Central Valley to serve at NAS Lemoore. God called on Bryan to change his career path into a life as a law enforcement officer.

   Bryan came to Lakeside Community Church and immediately felt called in Youth Ministry. He served God as Youth Leader under the mentorship of Both Pastor Andy Abbas and Pastor Stan Plooy. Wanting to continue in the ministry, Bryan accepted God’s calling as the Youth Minister of Lakeside Community Church and has served diligently since.

   Along with his love for the Lord, his wife, and son, Bryan enjoys coaching youth baseball, volunteering for sporting events, and “hanging” with the youth.
