Our Story

In 1926, the North Central District Council of the Assemblies of God, under the leadership of Rev. Frank J. Lindquist, put a call out asking churches and believers to work together for a lakeshore camp meeting ground. Things progressed quickly and that same fall, a deal was made for the original 13-acre piece of lakefront property on the shore of Lake Geneva in Minnesota. The price, $3,500!

Plans for a tabernacle began immediately with funds raised and volunteers recruited throughout the district. On May 15, 1927, the long wonter’s wait was over and building began. The 1000 seat tabernacle was constructed by pastors, volunteers, and a handful of contractors. It was completed in just seven weeks and the people began to gather for camp.

In the years that followed, improvements were made including housing and dining facilities, and more land was added. The crowds attending the camp each summer grew. The little cabins scattered through the acreage first appeared around 1929. Dormitory structures were added in the mid 1940’s. The Lakeview Dining Center, with dormitory-style housing on the upper two floors, was built in 1974 and changed the camp from just a summer camp to a year-round facility. A 2000 seat auditorium, hotel style housing, and Dining and Event Center were imporvements made through the years. The old tabernacle was not able to be saved and was torn down in 2015.

The facilities at Lake Geneva Christian Center have changed in an attempt to keep up with the growing demand, but the mission has not: “To provide a quality Christ-centered conference, retreat and camp environment where all have the opportunity to meet with God.”
