"Where can I go to share my pain and struggle?"

“Will anyone listen to me?”

“How can I find hope in my struggle?”

“I’m alone and afraid to tell anyone what’s really in my heart.”


 

Such thoughts and questions plague many Christians. The discipleship and prayer ministry of Living Waters and CrossCurrent addresses the roots of sexual and relational issues that ensnare Christians into unhealthy living.

Anyone seeking to walk through the healing journey will benefit from Living Waters or CrossCurrent, especially in the areas of:

 
 

Fear

Insecurity

Marital problems

Co-dependency

Pornography

 

Effects of abuse

Poor boundaries

Sexual addiction or promiscuity

Isolation

Inability to trust

 
 

Anger or unforgiveness

Compulsive masturbation

Gender identity issues

Unwanted same-sex attraction

Fantasy

Shame and self-hatred

THROUGH LIVING WATERS AND CROSSCURRENT WE LEARN ABOUT:

  • God’s powerful love for us and how Jesus is central to our hope for wholeness​
  • The depth of our brokenness and our profound need for Him.
  • The power of the cross to restore our souls, sexuality and relationships
  • The process of walking out our healing
  • Our place in the church and loving others honorably


3 Focuses of living waters 

Living Waters and CrossCurrent provide a thoughtful and safe place to look at the ways we’ve become ensnared with three main focuses.

1. Worship: We focus our attention and praise on God rather than on our problems.

2. Teaching: Our teachings include Biblical truths that help us to know God and ourselves better.

3. Prayer: Through attentive prayer in large and small group settings, we invite the Holy Spirit to heal our various wounds. We bring our sins, and those sins committed against us, to the Lord who is faithful to set us free.

 

We value men and women working out their healing together. Great healing comes as men and women minister and receive alongside one another in worship, teaching and prayer in the large group (though the small groups are same-sex). This reflects God’s intention and character. Foundational to Living Waters is the reality that God created us in His image as male and female.
