I Want My Life In Christ To Make A Difference
Watering Hole began when a woman proclaimed, "I want my life in Christ to make a difference!" A group of friends gathered together to discuss, study and seek the Lord as to how their lives could make a difference in this world. "Lord, use me and transform me into your vessel," they prayed.
The women met for a few weeks of study using the book, The Path. They discovered who they really were in Christ and what their giftings were. After completing this, they decided to continue to meet and welcomed anyone who wished to participate.
At their monthly get-togethers, the women ministered to each other bringing God's healing and transformation into their lives. The group grew. They decided to call it, The Watering Hole - a place to receive refreshment from the Lord like a spring of fresh water in a dry land. It would be an inter-denominational ministry with the vision of seeing women set free into the calling God had for them, all in a safe place. Their mission was also to strengthen women and men who are in Christian leadership.
Thus began The Watering Hole ministry. A warm and welcoming home in LaGrange Park was the setting of monthly meetings for many years. As the group continued to grow, the Lord blessed them with a larger facility. Fountain of Life Church opened their hospitality room to The Watering Hole. It has been a tremendous blessing.
The vision has stayed constant over the years - to see women and men set free to His Call in their lives.
Glory to God.
