Lakewood New Life Church is a multicultural Non-Denominational Church.  It was pioneered in 2006 by Pastor Bob and Yolanda Kistemaker, with a team of 23 people as a church plant of the House of Praise International Church in Lorain, Ohio. Lakewood New Life Church is associated with Ministers Fellowship International, and is operated by a Board of Elders.

As the pastors of Lakewood New Life Church, we are committed to creating a culture of authenticity where people can come as they are. God gave us a vision in 2006 of a multicultural church, which would change the way in this area view God and His church.
