We invite you to take a journey with us over the next three years. Will you commit to taking one action in each of the three engagement platforms described below?
We will help you customize a plan that fits with your church’s unique needs as a leader. Through this partnership, by co-laboring with Living Water to solve the global water crisis, we will build a powerful testimony of unity, action, and compassion for a thirsty world.
Grow In Knowledge
Living Water offers resources to help church members expand their insight and understanding of how the church is actively solving the water crisis while sharing the gospel. Through these resources, individuals can develop a love of mercy and justice as well as a heart for seeing God’s Kingdom transformation on the earth.
Receive information packets featuring facts and videos on the global water crisis to share with others
Our staff can provide information and suggested videos that you can share with your congregation to begin their learning journey. For instance, did you know that $260 billion is lost each year due to inadequate water supply and sanitation?
Discover more about our shared work through participation in Connection, a multi-media experience designed to deepen your knowledge
Each month, we alert you by email that a new Connection is available. You will better understand the global water crisis through real people, real stories, and real experiences from the work that Living Water International does around the globe.
Utilize Thirsting for Living Water, a new book by our president and CEO Mike Mantel, to discover your own story of God’s faithfulness
When we uncover and share stories of God’s faithfulness in our lives, faith grows and is strengthened. This book and the companion guide will help you see and share God’s redemption story.
Expand Your Experience
Experiencing God in action deepens faith and helps grow discipleship opportunities for all. Through Living Water, congregations can participate in the global body of Christ in ways that give tangible expression to the gospel and help believers grow in faith.
Transform your Christmas season with church participation in the heartwarming Advent Conspiracy initiative

Invest for Impact
Christ tells us whenever you care for the least of these, you care for him. To make this work possible, the global body of Christ needs the financial investment of those who have been blessed with surplus resources. Whether you can give a small monthly gift, sponsor a water project, or enable an entire WASH Program Area, you’ll know your financial contribution is making a significant impact by proclaiming the gospel in word and deed.

Why Partner with Living Water?
Our donor churches say they select Living Water as a missions partner for many reasons. Most often, we hear four explanations:
Fulfilling the Great Commission:
Partnering with other churches through Living Water extends the church’s ability to “go and make disciples” at home and around the world.
Living Out the Great Commandment:
Living Water helps the church to “love your neighbor as yourself” by meeting physical needs.
Helping the Church be Relevant & Engaged:
Pastors tell us that when church members get involved with meeting real needs through Living Water's support and encouragement, they come alive as they experience the relevance and unity of the Church.
Missions pastors appreciate our turnkey solutions for service trips and activities that help congregants expand their experience and grow in knowledge.
