expand your neighborhood in lake charles, LA

In late August of 2020, Hurricane Laura hit Lake Charles and the surrounding towns, causing untold damage. LeaderTreks teams are partnering with local churches to help rebuild this community and offer hope.

Hurricane Laura forced almost 600,000 people to evacuate. Many houses, schools, and community buildings were damaged or destroyed. Your team will serve families as they rebuild their homes in the aftermath of the storm.

At the same time, your team will partner with local churches to bring the hope of the gospel to families through local relational outreach opportunities.
