Located on the shores of Stony Lake in New Era, Michigan, 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.

We offer a variety of summer programs for students completing grades 1 through 12 and specialty programs including weeks for children in foster care, adults with developmental disabilities, and high school students aspiring to be anti-racist leaders.

The work we do is increasingly powerful in the face of a world that continues to embrace division. We feel particularly called to create relevant, meaningful, and welcoming communities for all people regardless of race, socio-economic status, abilities, sexual orientation, gender identities, or gender expressions. We also maintain a commitment to being a ministry that prioritizes racial equity and anti-racism efforts as a faithful response to Christ’s command to love others. 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.

Our vision is clear: To create communities centered in Christ to transform lives and the world. Our mission is real: Bringing together all of God’s children to experience Christian community, grow in faith, develop leadership skills, and serve others. Our core values: excellence, Christian community, faith formation and welcome to all – guide our work.
