Living Waters Assembly of God

Church Leadership

We are truly blessed to have Church Leadership dedicated to Christ and accomplishing His Will.  It is through their devotion to Him that Living Waters Assembly of God is able to accomplish such great things within our church family, surrounding communities, and across the globe. They have each answered a call to serve Jesus Christ, and we are grateful for their service.

Following are brief biographies of our ministerial team, as well as information about other church leaders.



David & Carol Levandusky

Senior Pastor

Pastor David Levandusky was appointed to serve as Living Waters Assembly of God's Senior Pastor on September 1, 1989. 

The attributes that best describe Pastor David as a pastor are strong preaching, leadership development and counseling. He has expressed a burning desire to lead a church like Living Waters Assembly of God, where biblical views are embraced and encouraged, with members who care about the needs of those around them, and who want to connect others to the body of Christ. Pastor David takes worship and preaching very seriously, spending the few free hours of his day focused on personal Prayer and Bible study. 

He attended Zion Bible College in East Providence, Rhode Island, from 1967-1969.  He graduated from Fatih School of Theology in December 1976, and pursued his Bachelor's and Master's Degrees from The American Bible College and Seminary  located in Oklahoma in May 1998, with a degree in Pastoral Christian Counseling. 

His precious wife Carol has served with him in family and Church ministry work for 52 years. She has worked with children's ministries, visitation, hospitality, and multiple minstry areas, unseen by most in the church. Pastor David calls her the glue in the family and ministry that holds most of it together. 

They have three grown children and two grandchildren all of whom are serving the Lord.

Deacons and Deaconess






Mark Guillemette, Dennis Churchill, Stephen Richards, Claudia Hernandez. 

Our deacons and deaconess are God's gift to the the Pastoral ministry.

The first deacons in the early church were selected to free the Apostles from having to meet the physical and social needs of the very many needy individuals and families, so they could give themselves to continual prayer and the ministry of God's Word. The Apostles selected seven individuals who were saved and baptized in the Holy Spirit, of honest report and full of faith and wisdom, to help meet the needs of those in the church and community who were being neglected in the daily distribution of food and financial needs.

At Living Waters Assembly of God, they serve as the watchful eyes of the church family, attending to the spiritual, physical, financial and social needs of individuals who request help. More importantly, they are ever-observant and on the lookout for those in need, who may not know how to ask.

They are men and women of prayer, faithfully studying God's Word, and regular church attendees, performing at-home or hospital visitations, as needed, and also serving their own families well.

While pastors are God's gift to the Church, deacons and deaconesses are God's gifts to the Pastors. At Living Waters Assembly of God, they are also advisors to the Pastor in official Board matters.

We are truly blessed  to have such highly-spiritual and charitable church leaders.

HOSPITALITY TEAM

Church hospitality is an important function at any church. The hospitality team provides kitchen assistance during potluck dinners, fellowship, special gatherings, events, and more. They are often the first to arrive and the last to leave church functions, and are sometimes underappreciated.

We truly treasure and appreciate our Hospitality Team: Nina Richards, Carol Levandusky, and others.

We are always looking for new people to join the team. Talk to someone at church if you think you might be interested.

OUR MAINTENANCE TRUSTEES











Every church needs those who care for and maintain the physical properites of the church. Our Maintenance Trustees are the ones who make the church property inviting and welcoming for worshippers.

Give them all a big Thank You when you meet them. Their service to Living Waters Assembly of God fulfills the Bible admonition "beautify the House of the LORD."  Ezra 7:27.

Maintenance Trustees serve on a four-year rotating basis. A special appreciation to those serving this year: Vern Sund, Dennis Churchill, David Chaplin, Sam Pyfrom, Joyce Politis, Nina Richards.  Our lifetime Honorary Trusees include Roger Chaplin and Terry Renaud.
