Tara Linsley, Ministry Support Leader
Tara has been attending Lake Ridge Community Church since 2013. She is passionate about communicating, but more than that, she cares deeply about the stories behind the message. Tara comes to Lake Ridge with experience in the non-profit sector and a Bachelors degree in Communications from Mount Royal University. She drinks massive amounts of tea and loves games, but is oddly NOT competitive. Tara is married to Ryan, who is one of our awesome sound tech guys at church!
Lake Ridge Community Church grew out of a group of followers of Jesus who felt called to be the church in Chestermere. The Evangelical Covenant Church, our denomination of over 850 churches in North America, supported and encouraged the growth of Lake Ridge Community Church along with other local Covenant churches in Strathmore, Calgary, and Rosebud, and others across the province. We are so grateful that so many people and organizations have come together to bless Chestermere through Lake Ridge Community Church.
