Pastor Chuck Wilsey

Board Member since 2017

First installation: May 2015 to San Francisco Zapotitlan, Guatemala

Home Church: Wellspring Christian Center, Dinuba, CA


"From the first trip till now, I have been impressed with the ministry of Living Waters.  We come alongside local churches to provide clean water so we can share about Jesus, the Living Water.  They in turn have a greater tool to tell their entire community about this Living Water, whose name is Jesus. The local church is the catalyst for sharing the gospel in this world.  I am so excited to be a part of an organization equipping the local church for greater effectiveness!"
