40-years-ago in Southern California, Andrew Comiskey began to impart to others what the Lord had first given him—encounters with God and His transforming presence. The authority of Andrew’s “yes” to let go of ‘gay’ identification and to take up who he was as a man made for woman drew others who were yearning for the same freedom.

Partnering with Annette, his new bride, the DNA of Living Waters was established: beautiful gatherings of hungry hearts, seeking the One who would transform disordered desires, weakened wills and darkened intellects.

This One—Jesus—encountered this ever growing band of brothers and sisters. Person after person was set ablaze by the transforming power of Jesus Christ, who cares not only about our eternal salvation but also our wholeness, today. Jesus imparts mercy and grace to integrate our ‘pretty good’ humanity now, not just in the future.

For 40 years, through groundswells in various churches, cities and nations, Living Waters has seeped into dry and thirsty spaces. From our home base in Kansas City, we delight in the groups that have sprung up in the US and across Asia, Europe, and South America. But as a ministry, we hear the cry and feel the pull of those still yearning for mercy, freedom and truth.

We are ready to go the distance!

This August 7-9, we gather here in Kansas City for celebration. We will worship and declare the goodness of God, proclaim again the testimony of Jesus’ salvation, and envision our friends for the next 40 years.

Will you join us? You are welcomed and wanted as we celebrate! Though spaces are limited, we would relish your presence.
