Who We Are
Welcome! We are The Well, a new charitable initiative moving to Blind River. We want to serve you along with the rest of this community, with a special focus on ministering to, mentoring, and entertaining the youth in the area. We have a special focus in student development and a background in Church work, and are very excited to plant a new community for the first time! We want to regularly connect you to the Power of Jesus, and be there to walk with you in your day to day life.
Racheal, Andrew, and Alex met in Bible College, and all have a love and devotion for Student Ministries. We have seen how a fun and welcoming environment can help foster growth in youth and in their lives, relationships and spiritual journeys. We want to create a real community that can be transparent with one another, in the belief that this will help us grow. We believe that there is a place for each person in this community to get involved and grow in the unique gifts they have been given. We are dedicated to learning how to serve Blind River and becoming a part of the community. We want The Well to be a place where people can find belonging, hope and the love of Jesus. "
We are always curious to know more, and to get better at serving you. We want to always learn modern ways of ministry, and explore new ways to share The Good News.
