What are Wavemakers?

Learning to Surf

On August 7, 2019, after leaving worship service later than usual (due to a baptism), two teenage girls from the country, went from earthly rejoicing to their heavenly reward. These girls didn’t just make ripples, they made waves. Every person we meet is going through something. Ella and Aranza made sure everyone they met felt loved and wanted. In their honor, the intentional Wavemaker Life Ministry began. We want to share it with as many people as possible. What kind of ripples do you want to make? And why settle for ripples if you can make waves?
