Who we are

Everyone has a part to play. We don’t leave everything to a few people. In all areas of church life, many people serve and someone will be responsible for that area.We also have a Core Leadership Team who meet regularly to pray and have oversight of the church.

The Core Team

John and Dawn Singleton

John Singleton founded LifeLine Church in the mid-1970s. John’s passion is to see the church demonstrate God’s love in real and practical ways, believing God has called us to make a difference in all we do. His revelation of a relationally-based church has led us to genuinely care about each other and those around us, empowered by the Holy Spirit to have an impact on our family, community and nation. Through his leadership, new expressions of the church have evolved, including LifeLine Network, LifeLine Projects, and Community Resources.

John’s wife, Dawn, works closely with him and is involved in all aspects of the ministry.
