Our Story

Pastor Wade & Amy DeForest

Amy & I have been married for 30 years and have had the blessing of raising four children. Two have completed college and two are in college. We served as associate pastors at Shreveport Community Church in Shreveport, LA., from August of 1984 until May of 1998. Sensing God’s direction to establish a church in Fort Worth, Texas, we received the blessing of our pastor, Rodney Duron, and relocated to Fort Worth in May of 1998.   

Living Water Church began in May 1998, in our home, with 14 in attendance.  For one year we held a Wednesday evening service in our home. In May of 1999, Living Water Church purchased its current facility and the first official service took place on Sunday, May 2nd; exactly one year to the date of our arriving in Fort Worth.
As pastors, it is the desire of our hearts to love people, see them establish a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and help them grow in their walk with Him. We work to help others understand the Bible and apply it in their daily lives.

 As a church body, we seek to minister to those in our surrounding communities and people around the world. This is done through community ministries such as The Light Food Pantry and Friendship Ministry for those with intellectual disabilities.
