3 FROM THE PASTOR A YEAR OF EXPANSION will be the year of Super- Natural Expansion...This year we endeavor to secure a more permanent location for worship so we can establish a centralized location for our ministry efforts Grace and peace to you, What a blessing it was to experience the move of God in our ministry throughout the past year. We declared 2017 as the year of Spiritual Order and Completion. Many in the LVC family received clarity in their life visions and navigated the year with renewed and redefined purpose. Some took on new employment opportunities, others engaged in new ministry assignments, yet others intensified their pursuit of personal and spiritual well-being. Personally, I was blessed to launch my book, Life After Failure: Overcoming the hurdles to your success. I was also strengthened as a spiritual leader through the introduction of a new spiritual father and mentor, and continued engagement with my team of mature spiritual leaders. As a ministry we experienced Spiritual Order and Completion by developing new processes to allow people to connect and serve in a more seamless manner. We enhanced our emphasis on leadership development as we increased our time and focus to strengthen our leadership team. We also continue to impact the community through our work with The Mission at Kern County, our support of people through counseling services in the community, and our newly established weekly radio broadcast on KERI will be the year of Super-Natural Expansion. Throughout this year we will focus on expanding our faith and trust in God, increasing the number of people that we disciple to new levels of faith, increasing the number of people who engage in service to the church and the community, and expanding our presence locally and nationally. This year we also endeavor to secure a more permanent location for worship so we can establish a centralized location for our ministry efforts. By the conclusion of 2018, my prayer is that LVC, the people who are connected, and all who are impacted will recognize the increased reach and impact of God through changed lives. As I say every year, I am blessed to have the great privilege to pastor an amazing church with amazing people. I hope you will find this Annual Report both informative and inspiring. Thank you for your ongoing love, support and prayers. I look forward to partnering with you in 2018 to advance the Kingdom of God. In His Victory, E. Dwayne Cantrell, Th.D., Ed.D. Senior Pastor 3

MINISTRY HIGHLIGHTS In 2017, the following ministries experienced growth and/or change: The Hospitality Ministry at LVC has blossomed in The team has grown to 4 individuals who volunteer to make sure LVC is a friendly, welcoming environment. From decorations to communion and beautiful snack arrangements, the Hospitality Ministry has a focus on health and nutrition. Team members rotate on a schedule, serving about 6-7 hours per week. The R.E.A.L. Beauty Women s Ministry experienced a change in its format this year. The women gather every Monday evening to read books on spiritual growth, healing and wholeness. During the second hour every other Monday, women break into groups based on season of life and share their hearts during a time of encouragement and prayer.

6 BUILDING LVC MINISTRY CENTER The LVC Ministry Center is located at 5329 Office Center Court, Suite 130. Our Ministry Center is located in Central Bakersfield, which has given us the opportunity to be easily LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT accessible for attendees.

The Ministry Center has given LVC a place to conduct ministry throughout the week. In 2017, the following ministries experienced growth through leadership development: The LVC Administrative Staff has now grown to 3 part-time employees, with the addition of a Hospitality Manager who is tasked with the responsibility of managing the LVC Ministry Center and special events.
