Meet our Co-Lead Pastors
Called to pastor Lake Pointe shortly after its founding in 1979, Steve Stroope leads a congregation that has grown from 53 in attendance at its inception to more than 12,000 each week at Dallas metro campuses. In addition to leading Lake Pointe, Steve provides coaching to partnership churches throughout the world. Lake Pointe has also been instrumental in planting over 40 churches in spiritually under-resourced places like New York City, San Francisco, Seattle, and Montreal. Pastor Steve’s spiritual gifts are evangelism, leadership, and teaching. He has a passion for seeing the Gospel presented to unchurched people in a culturally relevant style without compromising its truth. He also believes that one of the keys to an effective church is keeping a balance between evangelism and discipleship.
Josh graduated from Union University with a degree in Theological Studies and went to Southern Seminary. He was the Lead Pastor of The Bridge outside of Nashville, TN for ten years. Josh is married to Jana, the love of his life he met on a blind date, and together they have two daughters – Eliana and Felicity Hope.
Being (in God’s strange and good providence) a third-generation pastor and deeply gripped by a love for the church, Josh hopes to help “equip the saints for the work of ministry” by helping leaders in churches with cultural, theological, pastoral, and leadership issues.
