Living Water Church of God



our Pastor 


Pastor Larry Ridenour is not new to the Cahokia area.  He was raised in the Cahokia Church of God, went through the Cahokia District 187 school system, and is a 1987 Graduate of Cahokia High School.  Ministry is nothing new to he and his wife of 30 years, Julie.  They have served the local church faithfully as youth pastors, children pastors, worship leaders, and other various ministry roles. With three sons, Jacob, Jordan and his wife Ashley and their daughter, Ava, and Caleb and his fianc√© Cailyn, serving the Lord, loving family, and helping people was always their family mission. Pastor Larry has recently celebrated 35 years in active ministry and has dedicated his life to furthering the Truth and preaching the Gospel with passion and conviction. 

It is the responsibility of the Pastor to Equip the Saints for the Work of the Ministry


We truly believe that everyone has a place in the Kingdom of God.   According to Ephesians Chapter 4 the Pastor is called to be an "equipper" so more people can be involved in ministry and making a difference for the Kingdom of God. Pastor Larry believes in providing opportunities for people to learn, grow, and become equipped to work for the Lord.
