Living Water Ministries is a safe place for all of God’s children to experience intentional community centered in Christ where they are formed in their faith, developed as leaders, and equipped as servants of the gospel. This approach to our work has world-changing implications as participants experience the love of Christ in each member of the community, and return home to share that same love with others.

The work we do is increasingly powerful in the face of a world that continues to embrace division. We feel particularly called to create communities that are relevant and meaningful to people of all races, genders, identities, orientations, abilities, and socio-economic statuses. As we endeavor to authentically create space for all of God’s children, we find ourselves glimpsing the reign of God “on earth as it is in heaven.” It’s in this pursuit of the reign of God that we see lives and the world transformed. It’s in this pursuit of the reign of God that our mission & vision are made real.
