Our Mission & Vision

The mission of Lake City Foursquare Church is to honor God by helping the not yet convinced become convinced and the convinced, fully devoted followers of Christ. The vision of our church is to love God with all we have, love the people around us enough to introduce them to Jesus and to love the people in our church until we all become what God wants us to be.

Leadership Team:

Our leadership team recognizes the authority of God, and realizes that we are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. We desire to devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word. Our passion and goal is to equip the believers for the work of the ministry until we all attain maturity in the fullness of Christ.

Dave and Laury Chandler, Senior Pastors

Dave and Laury Chandler planted LCF 12 years ago after moving back to their home town from their first church plant. Laury’s parents homesteaded in northern British Columbia and then she moved to Spokane where she finished high school. Dave grew up in Moses Lake and the best day of his life was when he met his future wife at a church camp! Together they have 6 children and best of all, 7 grand children who they love to spend their time with. Dave and Laury have a blast riding their motorcycle and above all they love to serve Jesus and His church here in Moses Lake. Down to earth, real, relevant and authentic are words that describe them and the ministry at Lake City Foursquare.

Dave & Mary Ponsness, Children Pastor

Dave and Mary Ponsness first met in May of 2010. At the time, Mary resided in Moses lake and Dave in Spokane. Both were in the medical billing profession. When Dave was sent to Moses Lake to do further training at the store that Mary managed at the time, well let’s just say that God had plans that they did not expect and are extremely thankful today for the outcome. After a year of “long distance dating”, and as God continued to firmly build the relationship, Dave and Mary were married on May 14 2011.

Previously, Dave was a fully licensed children’s pastor in Spokane for four years. Dave graduated from INSTE (Institute of Theology by Extension) in 2003. Dave oversaw the entire children’s program which included: developing “Power Up Children’s Ministry”, VBS, Kid’s Camp, introducing the “Saturday Easter Egg Scramble”, oversight of over 100 volunteers and the list goes on.

Dave is a licensed Foursquare pastor and is currently ministering, with his wife and soul mate Mary, as children’s pastors here at Lake City Foursquare.

Dave and Mary reside in Moses Lake and have 5 children in total: Desiree (Spokane, WA), Melody (Post Falls, ID), Lindsay (Boise, ID), Mallory and Blake (Moses Lake, WA).
