With a multicultural and diverse church membership of 1800, Pastor Jay Miller of the Family Church is known for his unique style of delivery, always mixed with humor and passion. Pastor Jay also serves as the President of Lafayette Christian Academy, one of the fastest growing private Schools in all of Acadiana with 1100 students. LCA proudly claimed state championships in both Boys and Girls Basketball in 2017.
Pastor Jay and his congregation have bought up 100 acres of land which abut I-10 and Moore Park, a softball park and multi-purpose facility owned by Lafayette Consolidated Government. With a recurring lack of funding, Moore Park has deteriorated and is unusable in its current state of disrepair. Recognizing the need to offer athletic facilities such as a ball field to his school’s students as well as all students living in the area, Pastor Jay reached out to Gerald Boudreaux, LCG’s Director of Parks and Recreation to discuss a partnership to offer a first-rate baseball facility to the public. Effective December 21, 2016, the Family Church assumed control and responsibility of Moore Park for an initial period of ten years, renewable up to 60 years. The Family Church agreed to renovate the existing fields, dugout, concession area and restroom facilities, while LCG maintains ownership of Moore Field and the public will have access to its facilities. A fund drive is now underway. For more information, please visit https://www.thefamilychurch.org and www.lafayettechristianacademy.com.
