What does it mean to surrender our rights and become "all things to all men"? Paul brings clarity to our rights and freedoms in how we interact with a lost world, and he pushes believers to remember the race we are in and why we run in it the first place. This life is not about us and we need to set…
The Well currently in a season of highlighting the idea of what does it mean to not serve on a day, but to serve God every day. We call this "Serve Dei." To learn more about Serve Dei visit the Serve Dei Website.
As we become disciples of Jesus Christ, an important question arises in our journey…
My wife Sheri and I moved here the fall of last year, so this is my first experience with Serve Dei at the Well. As a Campus Pastor, I was able to see the Serve Dei packet a few days before they went out at services at North AM. Before I went and told someone they misspelled "Serve Day" on the cover…
Paul gives a personal example of how he sets aside his rights for the sake of greater influence to those around him. He demonstrates the importance of considering others as more important than ourselves and of setting our sights on the movement of the gospel and not our own personal comfort.
Our relationship with God is based on love, and how we display this love to others matters. We know we have freedom in Christ, but our love for Him and others needs to trump this knowledge.

As our relationship with Jesus Christ develops we are shaped by being humbly submitted to Him and allowing the Bible to form our lives. Looking at the Anatomy of a Disciple we find the core, Humbly Submitted and Biblically Formed, shaping the areas of our will and compassions, which are the outer…

For the past several years, The Well has paused during the spring season to remind you of God’s call to love your community. As we continue to reorient mission from a “Day” of service to a lifestyle of service for “Dei” (which is Latin for God), we want to help you understand the full breadth of…
This month in life group we've been talking about the bible. I know, weird, right? A bible study talking about the bible.
But we're talking about it in a different way. Why is the bible reliable? If it's reliable, why don't we rely on it? How do we rely on it?
The bible should be so much more than…
Lately I’ve been eating a lot of “humble pie.” I haven’t been asking for any, nor wanting seconds or thirds, yet I’ve been finding myself being forced to eat it! Whether it is through hard conversations, getting my feelings hurt, or someone calling me out, I’ve seen more of my flesh lately than I…
