Living Waters Fellowship

265 Stanhope Street - Brooklyn, NY 11237 - (718) 443-7567 -


          Living Waters Fellowship is an independent, non-denominational church. We are affiliated with the Independent Assemblies of God, with headquarters in Laguna Hills, California. Our church was founded as Redemption Ministries in 1980, with a name change in 1991.

        We are located in an area of Brooklyn called Bushwick. This community has been very distressed over the years, with all of the many problems usually associated with the urban poor and needy.

        Pastor Ronald Mandile serves as Senior Pastor. He and his family came from Minnesota in 1983. He is ordained with his home church in Minnesota as well as through Elim Fellowship of Lima, New York and with Word of Grace Ministries of Lowville NY.  For more information on Pastor Ron or the rest of our staff visit our staff page.


      Our mission is to reach those lost in cycles of poverty in our neighborhood and to facilitate reaching the lost throughout the NYC area, as well, as the world. We presently reach out to our community through our weekly worship services, counseling and  outreach programs. These outreach programs include our free breakfasts, outdoor park and street meetings and food distributions to the poor and homeless.

         Our sanctuary is a multi purpose gym and chapel. We minister to about 30 kids on Saturdays through an indoor sports program. We also have 35 children in our after school program and approximately 40 children from our neighborhood who attend our Friday night kid's program. Our teen and young adult ministry is called Truth Exists and also meets on Friday nights ministering weekly to young people from Bushwick, Bed -Stuy and Ridgewood.

         Many teams from the USA, Canada, and parts of Europe have come and volunteered with us. We have been able to give the volunteers vision for urban missions and strategies. We hope that many will develop an interest in becoming partners and ministers in this type of work. We also support missions financially as a church. We are often involved in helping with the arrival or departure of teams involved in short term trips missions abroad.   We are presently engaged in supporting missions and orphans in the jungles of India.
