“God used Living Waters to expose the roots of the broken patterns in my life so I could truly begin to heal for the first time.” – LW Participant

What is Living Waters?

Living Waters is a 22-week personal, discipleship experience where you engage root issues of your personal story to facilitate healing, growth, and transformation.

Why would someone go to Living Waters?

  • Fear

  • Insecurity

  • Marital problems

  • Co-dependency

  • Pornography

  • Effects of abuse

  • Poor boundaries

  • Emotional Wounds

  •  Isolation

  •  Inability to trust

  •  Anger or unforgiveness

  •  Unwanted sexual behavior

  •  Gender identity issues

  •  Unwanted same-sex attraction

  •  Dishonoring your identity

  •  Shame and self-hatred

Living Waters is a closed group for men and women who seek a safe place to facilitate change and address unwanted behavior.  It provides a biblical and Christ-centered foundation for healthy relationships. 

​Each meeting includes:

​WORSHIP – We focus our attention and praise on God first; our healer, and comforter.

THE WORD – Living Waters’ teachings combine biblical truths and psychological insights that help us to know God and ourselves better.

THE WORK OF JESUS – Through healing prayer in large and small group settings, we invite the Holy Spirit to heal our various wounds. We bring our sins, and those committed against us, to the Lord who is faithful to set us free.

BOTH GENDERS REPRESENTED – We value men and women working out their healing together. Great healing comes as men and women minister and receive alongside one another in worship, teaching and prayer in the large group (though the small groups are same-sex). This reflects God’s intention and character.  Foundational to Living Waters is the reality that God created us in His image as male and female.
