That's our bold statement. We believe our purpose as the Church is to engage with those in Henning, Otter Tail County and beyond who need Jesus. Everything we do is geared toward that simple, yet profound goal.  

Our Pastor

Pastor Andrew Lynch

Andrew came to Water’s Edge in November of 2022 all the way from California. He has been married to his wife Jenny since 2007 and they have two sons, Elijah and Samuel who were born in 2010 and 2012. They absolutely love the summers in Minnesota and are learning to love the winters. Andrew has been in full-time ministry since 2007, and has served as a worship leader, youth pastor, children’s pastor, and executive pastor along the way. Andrew is a graduate of Fresno Pacific Biblical Seminary and he loves to help people come to know Jesus personally and grow in their faith. When he’s not at church you can find Andrew kayaking on the lake, attending his sons’ sporting events, rooting for the Los Angeles Dodgers, and learning how to use his snow blower.
