Michelle & Jon Zlabek

Founders of Life Church La Crosse

​When the 2020 pandemic forced many churches online and many churchgoers home, Jon and Michelle Zlabek saw the opportunity for people to experience church in the La Crosse, WI area in a unique way. Combining the global impact of a big church with the intimacy and growth of small groups resonated deeply with them. They felt that Life.Church Online was the best partner to help launch the local network of LifeGroups of Life.Church La Crosse and formally joined the Life.Church ministry team as LifeGroup Leaders. 

The Zlabeks have nearly 25 years of experience in leading and coaching small groups and know that this environment provides incredible opportunities for life change. Their vision is to start multiple LifeGroups in the La Crosse area, inviting and connecting people who want to learn more about God and grow in their faith.


Please spread the word about this unique way to "do church." You can learn more about the inspiration and power of inviting people to start their faith journey from Sanola’s Story.

He speaks at conferences around the world, has written several books, and hosts the one of the top ranked podcasts, The Craig Groeschel Leadership Podcast.

"They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles. All the believers were together and had everything in common. They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need. Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved."
