God sized dreams aren’t accomplished alone, they require a team. The awesome thing about a team, is that there are different levels of people with different skill sets and responsibilities that are all working toward a common goal. Meet our team!

Advisory Board

The Advisory Board serves as more experienced practitioners that have made themselves available to coach and assist us as we seek to follow Jesus' mission for our church. These men have given their lives to making the church great and we are blessed to have each of their support as we move forward.

Board of Directors

The Board of Directors for Living Water Church will manage the operational direction for our church. They will be the decision makers as we make changes, purchases, and set the overall tone and direction for what God is calling us to do as a church. The Board of Directors will lean heavily on the Advisory Board when navigating any big changes or decisions, after all there is wisdom in a multitude of counselors. (edited)
