You might not think of the Pacific Northwest as being home to a surf community, but it is! The Pacific NW Christian Surfers started gathering over their love for Surfing and God. What started in a coffee shop in Sequim, has grown into a full fledged surf ministry. Their mission: “Bringing People to Christ through Living Water.” In this article, Pacifiic NNW Christian Surfers co-founder, George Crabb, shares the story of how it all started and where they are headed from here.
As you are all aware, our short-term mission to Guatemala earlier this year was canceled because of coronavirus.

Wow!!! What a whirlwind summer! When God decides now is the time, He makes what was before seemingly impossible come together. In the middle of the Covid lockdown God, through His people, birthed a women’s home in downtown Sequim. The body at DCC has lovingly stepped forward to provide prayer, finances, furnishings, and much more. You all joined a much bigger movement of His Spirit in the Sequim Valley as God brought other major churches alongside to bring about His plan. For so long a women’s faith-based home has been much needed in the middle of this plague of addiction in Sequim and Port Angeles. This scourge has effected families inside and outside the body of Christ.
In 1990 a group of Christians from Houston, Texas went on a medical mission to Kenya, Africa. While there, they learned that what these Kenyans needed more than medical assistance is clean, safe water. Dirty water is mainly what was making them ill. This group returned to Houston and formed the nonprofit Living Water International and since that date they have completed 21,058 water projects that provides safe water to over 6 million thirsty people (as of 7/27/20).
