In the fall of 2006, the dream of Church of the King became a reality. What started as a passion in Todd and Lisa Schumacher to plant a life-giving church in Lake Charles, quickly began to take shape as a recently abandoned theater-turned-church became available. More than 100 people attending the first meeting - and they just kept coming. During the last eight years, the church has grown and changed quite a bit, but what hasn't changed is our purpose to "Reach People and Build Lives”.
