YWAM - SLW Anniversary

From April 12-14, 2013, we will be celebrating an historic anniversary.  It has been 45 years since the founding of the Springs of Living Water and 25 years since the merger of these two ministries.   Our speaker will be John Dawson, who, in addition to being the most  recent president of Youth With A Mission, was a key figure in effecting the merger.

On February 1, 1967, Cecil and Lillian Cooper and their first team moved into the historic Richardson Mineral Springs Resort and created the Springs of Living Water retreat center.  This was to be a place where the body of Christ could receive teaching, renewal and refreshing in the Holy Spirit and be sent out to impact the places where they came from as well as the places the Lord would send them. Following a one-year trial run, the resort was purchased and forever dedicated to the purposes of God.

In 1988, after 20 years of fruitful ministry, the Springs of Living Water merged with Youth With A Mission to establish YWAM’s first Northern California missionary center, known officially as Youth With A Mission – Springs of Living Water. Today there is much to celebrate.

Come and join us as we revisit the faithfulness of God throughout the entire 45 year history and look with anticipation to the future of all that God still has in store. Click here for more info or to register.
