Annual Banquet Postponed

In response to the CoVid-19 pandemic, we have made the decision to cancel the Annual Fundraising Banquet until October 6, 2020.  While the banquet is postponed, we need you, our friends and supporters, more than ever!  We depend on the funds that come from the banquet to help with the many ministry costs.  Donate online now.  Keep watching the website for details of the Fall Fundraising Banquet.  Hope to see you then!


Mission Statement

Living Water Ministry Network (LWMN) provides homes and supportive services to disciple men paroling from prison and at-risk youth to become godly, contributing members of the community.

Our Story

Early on, God called individuals to get involved with Living Water Ministry Network (LWMN) to reach out and help incarcerated men and at-risk young men, whose hearts were changing for the Lord, to find housing and Christian support as they transition back into the community.  The need was great since many of these men find it extremely difficult to find a job, a place to live, and people who care that they succeed.  The residents of LWMN have a home where they are accepted, loved, and are treated as family.
