No one can solve the global water crisis alone. That is why Global Water Center is so grateful for our supporters. 

This month we are highlighting one of our very first supporters: Seacoast Church in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina. They have been fighting water poverty since 2005 when they offered Dr. George and Molly Greene six months of free office space for their growing nonprofit, Water Mission. The Greenes ended up working out of Seacoast Church’s West Ashley Campus until both organizations needed more space in 2012. 

Sharing space for seven years forged a deep friendship between Dr. Greene and Pastor Greg Surratt. As Pastor Greg commented, “(George) is a gifted, caring, very smart guy… our relationship is built on trust. I don’t understand everything that he’s doing, but I trust him.” That trust led Pastor Greg to continue supporting Dr. Greene when he launched Global Water Center (GWC) in 2020.   

GWC’s mission to solve the global water crisis aligns well with Seacoast’s focus on “Fighting poverty, seeking justice, and giving hope.” As Jodi McCall, Pastor of Seacoast Missions, commented, “Not having clean water is an injustice… Clean water changes everything.”  

Jason Surratt, the Legacy Pastor at Seacoast Church, saw the transformative power of water firsthand when he visited the “Village of Hell” in Togo, West Africa. After digging a well, putting in a medical center, and starting a school, Pastor Jason returned the next year to discover the “Village of Hell” was no more. It had been renamed the “Village of Hope.”  

Seacoast’s investment in safe water projects has brought hope and caused ripples of change throughout the world. As Dr. Greene summarized, “Pastor Greg and Seacoast have been incredible partners since the very beginning.”  GWC is grateful for their support.
