Who We Are

We are a student-led student ministry based out of VA Church in Mission, TX.  Our name comes from the familiar story found in Matthew 14 where Peter walks off his boat onto the water, and towards Jesus.  Peter defied what he could do as a man (walk the waters) by going in pursuit of Jesus, in the same way we as a community of young adults have chosen to set our attention on Jesus and give a second look at what culture says we, as young adults, should be doing.  We have “walked off the boat” and towards Him.  Our focus is student empowerment through intimacy with Jesus. We love the local church and hope to contribute locally to what God is doing globally.

Our Mission


SCROLL DOWN

Our Mission


To raise up students who actively serve their community in their pursuit of Jesus. 

 

Students who are aware of their responsibilities as citizens as they are of those of being Christians; students that would be fully devoted to loving Jesus and to serving people with selflessness.

Our prayers are that every Waterwalkers service, or event, would become a gathering where students would be encouraged and challenged by Holy Spirit through a culture of prayer and worship.

Our desire is simply to become a bride ready for her bridegroom.

Waves Tour

Waves Tour


WAVES is our attempt to practical student empowerment.  The months preceding MAR we like to visit our friends and neighbors and strengthen each other.   The tour helps us encourage and challenge students to do more for the purpose of Jesus in their city and in return be encouraged and challenged ourselves.  This all happens through peer to peer leadership-  the word, worship, outreach, and prayer - just a small group of us with a big yes in our hearts. We want to impact and leave a desire in students to serve and love well in every area they are called to.

Waterwalkers Conference

Waterwalkers Conference


Waterwalkers Conference is now MAR -- a conference led entirely by students.  At Waterwalkers we lead one another into the word, prayer, worship,  and partner with local churches to facilitate discipleship. Our hope is to create an opportunity for students to make a lasting commitment to Jesus.

Our prayers are that through this conference experience every student would become fascinated with Jesus that it would cause a shift in the desire of an entire generation.

Waterwalkers conference was, and MAR continues to be: a gathering of the lovesick.  We don’t hope to fill another stadium or arena, but to create a resting place.  To raise up those who stand in the gap, those that would carry their cross and His name. To be a generation that would hasten the way of the Lord, instigators of His presence; those that would be willing to stand before God in fasting and in prayer until something happens.  

Join us at the State Farm Arena, August 5th and 6th, 2016 as we seek to know God and make him known.

Our Story

Our Story


 

Our story is lengthy,  filled with failure and grace to keep going.  We would love to share it if you ask. Conversation can be tough for strangers, but we would like to be friends. 

We can tell you all about how we tried and failed and failed again, and how God kept showing up, and kept being present, and kept extending mercy and kindness and grace and peace and good leadership and and and and and and and, but really He just kept showing up.  This is not a success story of man's leadership, but a testimony of God who honors our yes. 

"Upon establishing a culture of prayer and getting caught up in the story of Jesus for their lives, today Waterwalkers is a vibrant culture of passionate young people who “just want Jesus”. It was the evident intervention of God that gave them the success they have in their community today." and to that we say, "amen".

 

The challenges we faced throughout this experience made us who we are today.   We had to develop openness towards those who didn’t agree with what we taught, and learn to communicate with them in a way that was comfortable but not compromising to our principles.  Through each interaction we became more understanding of people and their different outlooks on life, God, and Faith. The experience unconsciously taught us what we believe to be core skills to lead a group like youth ministry.

Through willing and broken people we said yes, not knowing what this would look like, but being confidant we didn't want to miss out.   If we could sum up everything we’ve taken out of our experience it would be this: God is more faithful to walk with us, than we are faithful to walk away.  What many would’ve seen as a problem, God used as an opportunity to fashion leaders out of us.
