Pastor Roger and Lennie Halvorson planted Church of Living Water in 1987. Their passion was to build a strong church family committed to bringing people to a relationship with Jesus and leading them to a life of obedience to God. They started with only a few other families in Fresno and the journey began. Along with their kids and a Dream Team of great people the church has grown into a thriving community serving their community.
In 2005, Pastor Roger accepted the assignment of Bishop to 45 churches in our conference and Pastor Anthony and Laura Holmes were embraced as the new lead pastors of Living Water.
Since then, the church has continued to grow into a great faith based community. Pastor Anthony says, “We have no intention of being the biggest church in town, but we endeavor to be the best expression of the family of God.” Regardless of your season of life there is a place for you to be connected and involved at Living Water Church.
We believe church ought to be a relevant and exciting place where you can meet with God and get involved in what He’s doing. If you’ve never visited Living Water, we hope you’ll take some time to visit our weekend worship experience or attend our online service. Let us know If you have any questions or have trouble finding anything on our site.
Connect groups have one, simple purpose: to bring people together. We believe God created us to live in relationship with others and only then can we live the full life He intends for us. Sharing life through community is part of our design, but meaningful relationships aren’t always easy to find. That’s why small groups exist—to make these life-changing relationships relevant and accessible to you.
Connect is the best expression of community. Family is what we find as we allow ourselves to be connected to one another the way the scriptures teach us. We discover love, friendship, caring, and the strength of faith as we spend time together in the smaller environments that connect faith families together.
God has an incredible purpose for your life, and the Living Water Growth Track is designed to help you connect with that purpose. On the Growth Track, you will spend four Sundays diving into what it looks like to follow Jesus, connect to the church, discover your purpose and then make a difference with your life.
