THE WELL CHURCH IS AN ELDER-LED BODY OF JESUS FOLLOWERS WHO ARE STRIVING TO GROW DEEPER, LOVE WIDER, AND LIVE BETTER TOGETHER. WE ARE ALL DISCIPLES, LEARNING TOGETHER AS WE SEEK TO BE MORE LIKE JESUS EVERY DAY.
We believe the current cultural moment requires a shift in our approach to ministry at The Well in 2024. The character and size of our church community do not lend themselves to a CEO model of leadership. We believe the Western Church has placed nearly impossible expectations on those in lead pastor roles to be teachers, counselors, prophets, facilities managers, cultural and family experts, and bosses – among many other things. This often creates unhealthy pressure for not only the lead pastor, but for the lead pastor’s family and for the staff and elders.
This is why we have chosen not to employ a “Lead Pastor” and have instead adopted a team- based approach. We are led by a team of elders. The elders oversee the staff, the budget, and operations at The Well.
Each ministry area is shepherded by a staff member and/or pastor. Get to know us below!
Pastoral care is administered to the community via small groups, ministries, and staff and elders when appropriate.
