We aren’t a perfect church…there’s no such thing. But we are a group of people simply seeking to live out the love and freedom that Christ offers in order that all people can be "Found" by the grace of God, "Filled" by the power of the Holy Spirit, and "Freed" to love like Christ.

Austin is the Worship Minister for all campuses at The Well. Austin sensed God’s call to ministry while in high school, but was unsure where that path would lead.

It is the desire of Austin’s heart to teach people that worship isn’t just music, but a way of life! He prays that people will understand that we worship God in all that we could do!
