History

Bluewater Mission began in 2009 with a group of about thirty believers, a team of volunteer leaders, and one office desk in a garage. Within a year, we were renting a gym for large group meetings, had begun sheltering trafficking survivors in a safe home, and had sent off our first foreign mission. We began with the conviction that whatever we believed in, we would try. We sometimes succeed, and often fail, but always stoke the faith to try.

The Name

Bluewater is a sea-going term that refers to wide-open stretches of ocean. The name reminds us to be out far and in deep with God. A healthy life of faith always has some adventure in it.

Mission

Jesus said that every believer has a life calling. As a community, Bluewater seeks to develop every disciple into a powerful minister in the kingdom of God on earth, so that together we can be the light of God’s love and power in a murky world.

Leadership

Bluewater Mission is managed by our senior staff team in cooperation with a board of directors. The former provides ultimate oversight of our ministries and the latter supervises our financial and legal matters.

VALUES

Bluewater Mission is dedicated to simple kingdom values as taught by Jesus and recorded in the scriptures. To help keep ourselves honest before the Lord, we’ve found it useful to stress four kingdom distinctives:

Anti-Religiosity

that flows from the Lord’s radical grace

Anti-Materialism

taught by Christ, who talked about money and generosity more than any other moral issue

Supernaturalism

as suggested by the promised work of the Holy Spirit, always making space for the exercise of supernatural ministries and direct encounters with God

Mission Orientation

realizing that following Jesus has always meant sharing in his work
