History

The Lake Charles Area has a proud history of ecumenical and interfaith collaboration. Abraham's Tent and The Samaritan Counseling Center are two testaments to communities of faith working together for the good of our people. In collaboration, what no one Church could accomplish, many did.
For a variety of reasons, perhaps many unknown, the local ministerial association unraveled over a five year period until it reached a point of total non-functioning. There were a few "neighborhood efforts and successes", but no community wide organization or activities.
Hurricanes Katrina and Rita brought destruction to our area. At the same time, these storms brought forth the reality that we need to work together and can work together. About six months following Hurricane Rita, a group of four ministers began to meet in prayer to discuss the reformation of an area-wide ministerial group. The numbers were expanded to seven and then anyone interested was invited to participate and to make a commitment. In November, 2006, the LAKE AREA MINISTERS GROUP formally came into existence with the election of officers, a Mission Statement, and a Statement of Understanding.
An invitation to join the Lake Area Ministers Group is sincere and always open.
