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.  This includes our friends who are LGBTQ+.  There are opportunities to serve according to your gifts and interests through our community partnerships, spiritual formation activities/events, stewardship/finances, children’s ministry & Sunday gatherings.

Our 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.  Vision team meetings are open to all active participants in The Well.

We also host “conspire together for good” sessions periodically as part of our Sunday gatherings. These are times we set aside to share & hear new ideas for ministry and check in about ongoing projects & partnerships.

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 pursued 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 marginalized neighbors & re-imagining new 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. Susan has been married to her husband, Kevin for 23 years and they have two teenage daughters.
