Nick Del Sol: Intern
I grew up in Lakeside and I couldn't be more excited to be serving here now. My hope and dream is that each and every person would leave everything and follow Jesus (Luke 5:11). I want to see the youth in our community find their purpose and identity in God, and use their talents to help build up our church and the kingdom. I'm humbled to play a small part in what God has been doing at Mapleview for over 60 years. I can't help but feel like He's just getting started (Isaiah 43:18-19).
