Our Story

Living Waters Church was first planted in Elk River in September of 1991 as a “Satellite Congregation” of Way of the Cross Church. In March of 1993 the leadership of the Elk River Congregation was turned over to Bob and Marci Pullar who had been a part of the core group. It was decided that the congregation should be released as an autonomous church and on July 31, 1994 the new Eldership was installed and Living Waters Church was birthed. At that time Bob was set in as full-time Pastor of the new church which was still meeting in a local school. Bob and Marci led the church through times of powerful revival, growth, and establishing our own identity, property, and building. 

In November of 2007, having served as an elder since 1995 and associate pastor since 1999, Dave and Susie Weigel took on the Senior Pastor role. Under their leadership our foundational values around the culture of God’s Kingdom were solidified and the church continued to be equipped for a lifestyle of revival, fostering freedom to experience the presence of God and bring that encounter to others. Bob continued to serve as an Elder and as a leader in an apostolic and equipping role for Living Waters and other churches.  

J Brian and Renae Calva served as Family Life Pastors for many years prior to Renae being set in as the Lead Pastor in November of 2020. In this new role, they bring strong pastoral and prophetic leadership to the next season at Living Waters as they seek to see an increase in the impact and reach of the love, truth, and power that God is pouring out through His Church! Dave continues to serve as an Elder and by pastoring leaders at Living Waters and at other churches. 

Throughout the years, Living Waters Church has been impacted by revival, and continues to believe for an increased awakening to the reality of a living and loving God for our church, city, and region. We are thankful for our shared history with Way of the Cross Church, for the blessing of cross-generational leadership, and for the unity we share with other church bodies. We have experienced God’s faithfulness as we have allowed Him to “build His church.”
