Carol VanWyk
Administrative Secretary
God has placed me in this place to use the gifts He has given me.  God has placed in my a love the returning citizens and a desire to see them grow in God’s grace.  I am thankful that God has placed me at Living Water Ministry to extend his acceptance to the residents and to serve along side other followers of Jesus.
Greg Oliver
Executive Director
Everyone in Christ is a "returning citizen". Before the Son set us free we were all imprisoned by sin. It is my passion to see the Word rightly divided and experientially applied to our residents, bringing them unto a greater conformity to Jesus Christ. I consider it a privilege to serve in this capacity, and in reality, more often than not it is the residents who minister to me. Additionally, I seek to employ the same biblical ethic in the directing of this ministry in an orderly and Christ-exalting manner.
Mark Oostindie
Board Member
I serve on the board of Living Water Ministry Network because I like the mission of helping men paroling from prison to lead a normal life through the life-change brought about by Jesus Christ. I also like the Christian focus of the ministry.
Christopher Engelsma
Director of Spiritual Formation
I began to minister to inmates ten years ago when I began my work at Puritan Reformed Seminary. I found many of these men to be devoted followers of Christ who had a strong desire to study Scripture and even the original languages of Scripture. I began to send these materials to them and was so encouraged to see how hard they worked to use these books. I then discovered Living Waters Ministry and began leading Bible studies with the residents. This has been a blessing to me, and I am thankful that God has brought me to these men who have helped shape me into the man I am today.
Kurt Flier
Project Manager
I believe in what this ministry does for the needs of men coming out of incarceration. I know that the Lord has placed me right where He wants me to be. I love being used for the Lord’s purpose and will. I will serve Living Water Ministry Network as long as the Lord needs me.
Gary Wainwright
Director of Admissions
I believe in the ministry of Living Water Ministry Network helping men who have paid their debt to society get a second chance in life in the name of Jesus.
Tom Visser
President
I promised my friend and fellow Christian Business Men’s Committee member, Carl Gunn, over 20 years ago, I would continue his ministry. In the years that have followed since his death, it has been a life changing experience to see the growth and success of the ministry, as all people have pitched in and made it possible.
Rich Rienstra
Vice President
I serve on the board to work together with those moved by God to do justice, love mercy, and walk in humility with those impacted by incarceration.
Sherry Miedema
Treasurer
The Lord led me to Living Water Ministry Network as a volunteer two years ago. After witnessing the way the ministry is run — careful with resources, treating those they serve with respect, heartfelt love for the residents — I count it a privilege to be part of serving and supporting this important ministry.
