About Champions Club

Champions Club is the special needs ministry of Lakewood Church, specialized in ministering to kids, teens, and adults with special needs and the medically fragile.


Champions Club meets the developmental needs of individuals with special needs in four important ways: SPIRITUALLY, INTELLECTUALLY, EMOTIONALLY and PHYSICALLY. Our focus is on spiritual growth through God’s Word, developing the intellect of each participant through the five senses, educationally through various learning tools and engaging the child physically during active motor fun.

There are over 90 Champions Clubs in schools, churches and facilities all and around the world.
