Welcome to

Lakeview community church

Our Mission

To serve Christ and promote His Kingdom in the local community and throughout the world.


Hello everyone! I want to take this opportunity to introduce myself to all of you that I have yet to meet personally. My name is Buck Garrison and it is with great joy and excitement that I have accepted God’s call to pastor here at Lakeview Community Church. I am married to my wife of almost 35 years, Nicole. We have 3 grown children (Daniel, Adam, and Jenna) and 3 precious grandchildren (Daniel, Ella, and Presley). I have been an ordained minister in the Wesleyan Church for 9 years and recently graduated with a MA in Pastoral Leadership from Wesley Seminary. I have proudly served as the Asst. Pastor at First Wesleyan in Burlington where we attended for 22 years. Also served at Kildee Wesleyan in Ramseur, NC, for a short time and most recently Bethel Wesleyan Church in Rose Hill, NC for 6 years. I have a passion for serving God and people, living for Him, and growing his Kingdom. I am looking forward to the future God has planned for all of our Lakeview family. If you are looking for a church, we would love for you to come check us out.

In Christ,

Pastor Daniel "Buck" Garrison
