Meet our staff

Meet the Living Water staff! Feel free to contact any one of our staff members.


In May 2009 Pastor Ned Lenhart accepted the invitation to be Living Water's pastor developer.  With a mission of, "Serving others through Christ," this small group of believers has grown steadily each year into a body united in its passion to live out its faith. Through worship, mission trips, small groups, meal ministry, Ruby's Pantry, and whatever means available, Living Water is continually seeking new ways to equip its disciples to be joyful, bold and confidant proclaimers of the Good News of Jesus.

A native of Montana, he holds degrees from the University of Montana, Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary, and the University of North Dakota. He has served congregations in Montana, North Dakota, and Wisconsin. Ned and his wife Jill and have three daughters, Grace, Clara and Thea, and one golden retriever.
