Global Missions

We believe God is saving for Himself a people from all tribes, tongues, and nations (Rev. 7:9), and that He accomplishes this redeeming work across the globe by sending His Church to share the good news of the gospel (Matt. 28:18-20). So at Living Water, we not only seek to make known the beauty of Jesus in Vancouver, WA where He’s placed our church family, but we also raise up, send out, and support missionaries who travel to the ends of the earth to make know the beauty of Jesus to those who have never heard His name.
It’s our deep conviction that global missions is not just a calling for those who are sent, but it is the calling of all of us. That we who stay are to pray for the Lord to work in mighty ways for those He has sent globally, especially those from our church family. Below you can get to know the missionaries Living Water supports around the world, and find out more about how you can actively be praying for them.
