The Well Church
Who Are We?
In every community around the world and regardless of culture, the watering well was a source of life. The well is where individuals and families would come to draw water for every need of their life (watering, cooking, cleaning, working). The watering well, by design, then became the center of the community since people gathered there daily for work, for fellowship, information, and for sustenance within their community. We believe that restoring thirsty souls begins with our love and affection towards God. Then, as we fall more deeply in love with Him, His love begins to overflow from our hearts allowing us to love and care for others. Our aim is to LOVE WELL, joining God on his mission to flood cities with living water.
What type of servant-leader staff member are we looking for to help us restore thirsty souls?
Unswerving in their decision to place trust in the good news of Jesus Christ;
Committed to abiding with Christ daily;
Dedicated about caring deeply for others;
Faithful to counsel and equip others biblically;
Devoted to living authentically; and
Steadfast to engage the world missionally.
And some other things we’re looking for…
We’re all about family – are you willing to dive into the joy of relationships with us? (Must be an existing member of The WELL or willing to become a member.)
We laugh – can you laugh at yourself and others?
We work hard – God calls us to join Him in rescuing people, defeating evil and restoring creation…which is no “country club” assignment.
Our hope is that people would always come before process. It is our love and affection towards God that fuels our life to love and care for others. We trust this description will help you decide if linking arms with our staff is God’s call on your life, as we aim to foster a culture that pursues loving God, sharing His love with others, and restoring thirsty souls.
