Job Description:

Living Water Lutheran Church is a new church in a new denomination. The North American Lutheran Church formed in August, 2010 and is a Christ-centered, mission-driven, traditionally-grounded, congregationally-focused denomination within the body of Christ on earth.  It affirms the Bible as the written Word of God, and as the authoritative source and norm, “according to which all doctrines should and must be judged.”   Living Water Lutheran Church formed as a mission congregation in January, 2011 and has been actively serving its members and the world beyond the church’s walls in the name of Jesus Christ ever since.  In that short time, Living Water has participated in multiple local and global missions, including outreach to people living in local low-income housing, reaching out to the community through our sports ministry, tornado relief in Joplin, Missouri and Henryville, Indiana, earthquake relief in Haiti, and home repair in Memphis.  Living Water is also supporting a full-time missionary in east Asia.  These are only of a few of the many activities in which we participate as an expression of our thanks to God for the grace given to us through the action of His Holy Spirit, and who has redeemed us through the death and resurrection of His Son, Jesus Christ.
