About Wellspring

Who We Are

We are people gathering together around a common mission. We’re not so much about making sure we all look right, live right, or have it all together. Ultimately we just want to help people live out their identity toward being a part of God’s Kingdom on earth. To do this we seek to give people a place to call home and to empower them for a life on mission.

A Place to Call Home

At Wellspring we believe that we are a part of God’s family, seeking to build authentic relationships based on the principles of His Kingdom. For us, those Kingdom realities are focused on freedom to explore God’s truth and express yourself in worship; safety to fall without risking your place in the family; and power to leverage your unique gifts for the benefit of the family and for bringing hope to your community.

A Life on Mission

The ultimate goal is that each one of us who call Wellspring home would be living our lives in such a way that the community around us is blessed by our presence. We believe we bless our community best when we begin to live life on mission. Life on mission is life oriented around Jesus Christ, fueled by his Holy Spirit. Life on mission is characterized by living life as a gift to be enjoyed and a calling to be honored. A life on mission is characterized by receiving the love of God with gratitude and giving it away with generosity. And it’s characterized by learning God’s Truth with curiosity and sharing it in humility.

What we Do

To be a part of Wellspring, you don’t have to clear a hurdle, jump through a hoop, or take a special class. You just need to take up a way of life. It begins with regular “Life Rhythms” — four core practices that we try to enact weekly. Once you’ve taken up the habits, you’ll find our “Life Path”– four core experiences designed to shape your sense of purpose — helpful to moving toward who you’re called to be. we walk together a common “Life Path”

Life Rhythms

Gather for Worship
Our week is set by the rhythm of worship. Every Sunday morning we gather to honor God and connect with one another. It’s this safe haven of a weekly gathering that brings us back to our center and reminds us that we are not alone.
Be a Blessing
As we go into the world we want to seek to bless others. We hope to find ways to lighten the load of those around us, encouraging them as we live alongside of them. We do this through speaking words of encouragement, committing acts of kindness, or offering thoughtful gifts to the people we come in contact with.
Be a Student
As people on the Way of Jesus we seek to study the Way of Jesus. Each week we try to find ways to learn more about who Jesus is and what he taught while he was on earth. We hope that by being curious students of Jesus’ Way we’ll be better equipped to share Him more compassionately with others.
Be a Friend
We recognize that life was not meant to be lived alone. Each week we try to be intentional about spending time with others. Because eating typically forces us a to slow down, a great way to connect with others is over a meal. As we connect with others we find support in friendship and see ways that we can serve the people around us.
Welcome Home Supper Series
Just as folks are beginning to call Wellspring home, we welcome them into the faith family with a series of meals shared together around a table. In this 6-week “Supper Series” we cover the basics of the Christian faith, talk a little about how Wellspring is set up, answer any questions people have about our church, and offer opportunities to take next steps of involvement within the faith family.
Life on Mission Boot Camp
Once folks are feeling comfortable calling Wellspring their church homes, and they’re finding themselves ready to center their life on Jesus, we ask them to take part in Life on Mission Boot Camp. Life on Mission is an 8-week course designed to help folks wrestle with what it means to live their whole life showing Jesus to a world that needs him. In Life on Mission we discuss what it could look like to intentionally structure our lives to be centered on Jesus. In the end we work together to establish ways to make Life on Mission not just an 8-week experiment, but a new way of living.
Calling & Vocation Mentoring Program
While most people typically see themselves as having a calling (a spiritual purpose for their lives) as well as a vocation (work that they do on a daily basis); we find that God often calls us to see our lives as an overlap of calling and vocation. Our third growth process helps folks to see their life as one calling, one vocation, one God-given purpose that includes tangible/relational work as well as spiritual/Kingdom impact. We walk folks through this process in 1-on-1 relationships or in small cohorts.
Go! Sending & Equipping
We believe that our ultimate goal is not to train individual people to grow our own programs or build our own house. Rather we exist to train missionaries who are ready to put their hands to the redemptive work of God’s Kingdom. Our ultimate goal is to see followers of Jesus living out their lives in service to people and communities beyond the four walls of our church building. So the final of our four growth processes involves equipping and sending individuals to pursue work that they are passionate about outside of our church. Regardless of the expression, the goal is to give people the tools and support they need to pursue a ministry passion that God has given them.
