Our Oversight Team
We at Living Water Fellowship strive to stay true to the examples in the scripture regarding our operation and structure as a new testament church.
Part of that structure is outlined in Ephesians chapter 4, verses 11 and 12 where it outlines that God has ordained Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors and Teachers (Five Fold Ministry) for the equipping of the saints.
We believe that we find the fulfillment of that in the leaders in the local church and also the three overseers we have listed here, as we witness the calling of God in their lives in the "Five Fold Ministry."
Our hope is that we can be all that God has called us to be as we walk in the fulfillment of His word.
