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 and 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: Hospitality Ministry, Mission, Spiritual Formation Ministry, Stewardship Ministry, and Worship Ministry.
The Vision Team is dedicated to listening, discerning and making recommendations based on a shared vision of The Well. Each ministry are is represented in hopes that the team will help synchronize the work of all ministry areas. Currently, those serving on our Vision Team include:
Mike Belle, Mission Leader
Gail Patin, Spiritual Formation Leader
Lanelle Phillmon, Stewardship Leader
Susan Rogers, Pastor
Jim Shaw, Vision Team Participant
Greg Warner, Worship Leader
Cori Wood, Vision Team Participant
Rev. Susan Rogers is serving as our Pastor. Having worked 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. Her love for inner city ministry and passion for re-imagining the church led her and her family to return to Jacksonville to start a new church through a generous partnership with the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship of Florida. Susan has been married to her husband, Kevin for 15 years and they have two daughters.
