“Serving at Wellspring allows me to use my passion for God’s people with my desire to serve.  Every day at Wellspring I see evidence of people’s lives being changed, and hope growing in them, because of our work.  I feel privileged to be a part of that mission. Wellspring is a unique ministry that seeks to impact individuals, families and whole communities, which makes this mission as difficult as it is inspiring.  Having been at Wellspring for over 27 years, I have witnessed the services and programs of Wellspring grow, develop and change based on the changing needs of God’s people, and I know that will continue as we seek to serve our communities.”

“For me, the mission of Wellspring is so deeply rooted into my heart that I can't help but share our mission with everyone I meet. Each day, I am humbled to see lives transformed through the Hope people experience at Wellspring. The work we do is difficult. We often meet people on the worst day of their lives.  Knowing that we have a team of people who deeply care about each person, and work tirelessly to make each day less overwhelming than the day before, is a gift. I am honored to serve at an organization that takes human care to the next level.”
