Our mission is to teach and lead children to worship, and to raise them to become fellow disciples of Jesus Christ.
We value each individual child for their different personalities and backgrounds, and we love that we are all one family in Christ.
You will see this shine through our wonderful teachers who have very diverse backgrounds, but all have the same love and passion for God.
Through our teachers, children experience the joy of being a child of God and part of His big family!
Born and raised in South Korea, I went to a nursing school in Chicago and Calvin Seminary for ministry. I love listening to audio Bible and watching premier league soccer highlights. My wife, Becky Lee and I have four children—Mary, Sophia, Ezra Jr., and Olivia. I am thankful for this opportunity to become like a little child and serve children’s ministry including Living Water Youth Group (LWYG), Sunday School (Little Disciples and Fellow Disciples), and their families.
Hello! My name is Ethan Yeong. I was born in Davao City, the Philippines, but raised in Chiang Mai, Thailand for almost all of my life. I am in my last year at Calvin studying nursing. I hope to one day use nursing as a way to do missions to reach people around the world, working to see them healed both physically and spiritually. I love playing sports, especially soccer, and hanging out with my friends. I really enjoy helping with the Children's Ministry and being with the kids. I find myself learning along with them. I hope to be able to encourage the kids to see the greatness of God as well as the close friend He is able to be to them.

Hello! My name is Sophie Kelly and I was born and raised here in Grand Rapids. I am currently a Calvin student pursuing a master’s in speech-language pathology. I hope to use my gifts from God to help empower others to share their voice. Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, gardening, and reading. I also have enjoyed building relationships with the other teachers and kids, because it enables me to witness and reflect on how God works through my life and the lives of others.
Hello! My name is Felicia and I'm a sophomore at Calvin University. I'm from Indonesia and currently majoring in Data Science with a minor in Psychology. I've been going to living water ever since my freshmen year and the community in living water is amazing! I'm looking forward to serving living water's children ministry and building relationships with the other teachers and the children too. I hope that through the children ministry, I could show God's love and grace through my actions.
I was born in Korea, but left the country when I was two years old. My parents are missionaries, so I have lived in many different places. Long story short, I lived in China for seven years, the Philippines for two and a half years, and Thailand for seven years. I am currently working as an engineer in Grand Rapids. I love participating in sports and playing music. Within our Children's Ministry, I share some testimonial stories as a missionary kid to demonstrate how God loves them and uses them even at their age.
Ha Dong Park
I am Ha Dong Park. I am Korean but I was born and raised in a small Caribbean island, Dominican Republic. Currently, I am studying Computer Science at Calvin University. Whenever I have time, I enjoy playing soccer with friends, watching movies, or doing silly things in general. Serving in the Children’s Ministry allows me to serve and give back to the Church and at the same time it allows me to learn from the Children along with their purity.
