Our Leadership

We look to Christ as our model for leadership.  Leadership at The Well looks less like a set of power structures and more like ways of service.  We believe that all are uniquely gifted & empowered to serve as part of the body of Christ.  All Well participants are encouraged to serve in these designated areas according to their gifts and interests: mission, spiritual formation, stewardship/finances, children’s ministry & Sunday gatherings.

The Vision Team is dedicated to listening, discerning & making recommendations based on a shared vision of The Well.  Each ministry area is represented in order to help synchronize our hopes, dreams & plans.  Currently, those serving on our Vision Team include:

Amy Beyard
Bob Beyard
Diane Graese
Marcia Putney
Todd Putney
Susan Rogers

Rev. Susan Rogers is serving as our pastor.  She grew up in Jacksonville and graduated from Terry Parker High School and the University of Florida. After working as an occupational therapist for 9 years, she felt God inviting her to pursue a calling into vocational ministry. She graduated from the McAfee School of Theology in 2008 and served as Minister to Students, then Associate Pastor at Peachtree Baptist Church in Atlanta. Susan is passionate about creating authentic Christ-centered community, advocating for social justice & re-imagining Jesus-like , life giving ways of being church. She and her family returned to Jacksonville in 2010 to start this new community through a generous partnership with the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship of Florida.
