  • Mark Moore
    Senior Pastor

    Pastor Mark began his ministry at Lakeside in December of 1989 just one year after the church was planted. He is the only pastor to have ever served as the young church had a couple of interim pastors the first year. He is married to Elaine Osborn Moore where they met at John Tyler High School in Tyler, Texas. They played a four hour game of billiards on Elaine’s pool table. The reason it took so long was that the table sloped badly to the south! It was during those four hours that set off a relationship of dating for five years before they were married.


    Mark graduated from John Tyler High School, Tyler Junior College, and University of Texas at Tyler; Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary; and Tyndale Seminary.


    Elaine graduated from T.K. Gorman High School in Tyler. She has been an integral part of ministry wherever the Lord has led the Moore’s.  She has taught children’s and Student Sunday School.  She is a committed prayer warrior.  Pastor Mark often shares that Elaine is the most unselfish person he has ever met.  She has the Christ like ability to always see the good in people.


    In 1976 they had a beautiful baby girl born to them. Lannie graduated from Canton High School, Austin College, and received her MBA from Central European University in Budapest, Hungary. She currently resides in New York City, NY. She served as the Executive Director of the Railroad Street Youth Project for seven years in Great Barrington, Massachusetts helping high school students find their “sweet spot” in life.


    In 1981 Philip Mark arrived to join the Moore family. He graduated from Canton High School and Dallas Baptist University. He married Holly “an Aggie” Hoyer and they currently live in Dallas, Texas with their African Lion Hound “Hunter.” Philip is employed with Interstate Batteries and Holly by Neiman Marcus.


    The first grandchild was born on February 11, 2014. Isaac Mark Moore has absolutely stolen Pastor Mark’s heart. However, it is Pastor’s (known as “Buddy” to Isaac) commitment not to become the obnoxious grandparent and turn every conversation or sermon into – “Let me tell you about my grandchild!” Then his first granddaughter, Thea Ruth (godly faithful servant) was born on December 1, 2015

    Mark and Elaine served at First Baptist Church in Dayton, Texas as Minister of Education and Youth; First Baptist Church of Humble, Texas as Minister of Education/Administration/Evangelism and First Baptist Church of Corsicana, Texas as Minister of Education and Administration. Mark served as pastor of his home church in Tyler for a short period of time. He learned from that experience that sometimes you just can’t go home!


    Living in Canton has been such a blessing to our family. The people of Canton and Van Zandt County have proven they have such a heart for the things of God. Pastor Mark firmly believes that we have been blessed to be a blessing to others. God is an abundant God and He is extravagant in His love for us. Thinking BIG is such a vital mind set in serving the Lord. I agree with David Platt when he states: “I doubt very seriously that I will one day stand before the Lord and have Him say to me; ‘You should have kept more for yourself.” What a joy it is to give yourself away each and every day for the cause of Christ.

  • Carlton Young
    Associate Pastor of Senior Adults

    Carlton grew up near Paris, Texas on a cotton farm. He is the youngest of five children. He has been on staff at Lakeside since 2010.


    Carlton was married to Rita Mayo in 1968 in Arlington, TX. Rita is a volunteer with Hope Pregnancy Center in Canton; leads a Post Abortion Bible Study; and is a leader in the Lakeside Baptist Women’s Ministry. Together they have 3 Children & 13 Grandchildren.


    Carlton has a BA in Math from Texas State University; Master of Divinity, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. He also served in the U. S. Air Force from 1967 – 1971 as a computer programmer in medical research.


    Pets: Gretchen, a grouchy 15 year old dachshund

  • Ken Sims
    Associate Pastor of Worship

         Ken and Andrea Sims are originally from Houston. They surrendered to the call to ministry in 2009.  God’s path for their ministry has led them from Houston to Grand Saline to Livingston and now to Canton.  Ken and Andrea have been married since 1997. They have two amazing children, Hope and Levi.


        Ken is called by God to the Gospel ministry.  Worship ministry is the creative outlet God has allowed in Ken’s life to facilitate and fulfill that calling.  For Ken, worship is such a passion because it’s training us all for our eternal purpose.  He looks forward to one day bowing to worship in the holy presence of the Father.


        Ken’s vision for the worship at Lakeside is one of spiritual depth and doctrinal truth.  He puts less emphasis on “how” we worship but instead focuses the church rightly on “who” we worship.  Ken’s plan for this vision is to build strong personal relationships within the church and then draw those hearts ever closer to the One who is worthy of all worship.

  • Joe Zinkgraf
    Student Minister

    Joe grew up in New Braunfels, Texas. Being the youngest son in a family of seven, he was greatly influenced by the godly environment he was raised in. When he was 6 years old he made a decision to trust Christ, and has been learning the depth, priority, and joy of that relationship ever since.


    Joe has been schooled at home, in public, in private, and on a basketball court (with the help of his older brothers). Graduating high school from New Braunfels Christian Academy, Joe continued his education by pursuing a Bachelors & Masters of Business Administration from Dallas Baptist University, and a Masters of Christian Education from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.


    On February 21st, of 2010, God opened the door for him to join the ministry at Lakeside as their minister to students. Joe & his wife (Meagan) have two boys named Judah & Mac. Every new day, the Zinkgraf’s have grown to see the blessing and faithfulness of the Lord. What a joy it is to see & participate in His work!

  • Donna Drake
    Children's Minister/Director of Finance

    Donna grew up in Canton but now lives in Edgewood.  The truth and promises in God's Word were taught to her as a child and she continues to pass that heritage to her own children and grandchildren.  Donna claims, “Life is really simple, just trust and obey Jesus Christ”.  Through the power of prayer and God’s Word, she has experienced God’s faithfulness in, up, down, over and through her life. 


    Donna and Gary have been married 36 years and their cup overflows with blessings including daughters and sons-in-law, Mandy & Weldon Haynes and Jenny & Stan Jontra.  She is “Nonny” to 5 grandchildren: Gus, Eli, Aubrey, Darcey and Landrey.  Ask any of them to name any place they want to go and the answer is “to Nonny and Paw-Paw’s”.


    Donna has served on staff at Lakeside since 2003 as Business Manager and Children’s Coordinator.  She joined the Ministerial Staff as Childrens Minister in April of 2016 and also maintains the position Director of Finance.  Donna eagerly awaits what God has in store for her and Lakeside.  She is passionate about the privilege of investing in the lives of children, their families and future generations.
