Ministry Leadership

BRUCE DODSON is an ordained Minister, Elder, professional counselor and leader of men.  ‘Men of the Ouachitas’ was developed by Bruce after recognizing a need for men to discover how to live out of their story while discovering God’s destiny for their lives.  Bruce has led 21 Men of the Ouachitas retreats, impacting the lives of hundreds men.  Bruce has a vision to expand this ministry by training other church leaders to provide this transformational journey for their men.

LAMAR TRIESCHMANN is an ordained Minister, Elder, and Teaching Pastor at Lake Valley Community Church. Lamar has played a key role in developing Men of the Ouachitas, a discipleship experience for men, since it early years. Lamar has helped design a weekend that is very intensive and intentional. His unique contribution is to bring experiential learning, passion and boldness to the process. “ Men of the Ouachitas is without a doubt one of the most transformational experiences I have ever been involved in. With the power of the Spirit of the living God, it just works!” Lamar loves seeing the hearts of men gain hope through their story and leave this weekend changed and free.


LAKE VALLEY COMMUNITY CHURCH has desired from day one, to be a church for others.  It's more than just something we do; it is who we are.  In keeping with this commitment, we are determined to share the life changing experience of the "Men of the Ouachitas" Retreat (our local expression of For King and Kingdom) with other churches.  Our hope is that by doing so,

men will be called out of dormancy and into vibrant lives of calling and destiny as leaders within the Church of our Lord Jesus.


Knowing that apart from the empowering of the Holy Spirit, we can do nothing, we pray for just that; that with His power, we will see churches across our world strengthened because of the men whose lives have been changed.  Please join us in this lofty dream.
