Current Sermon Series


A brand new sermon series on the last book of the Bible, Revelation, begins August 21.

In the tumultuous times we live in, chaos, violence, and hatred seem to be gaining ground. We wonder what the future holds. We have seen where nationalism and authoritarianism have taken countries in the past, and we hope and pray that history does not repeat itself here.

In times like these, we need guidance, and probably most of all, hope.

Hope often surprises us, and perhaps now it springs from the pages of an ancient and often misunderstood letter. Revelation is opaque and mysterious apocalyptic literature, terrifying, and at times inspiring. But the message written twenty centuries ago in a time of great distress was actually shared to uncover, or reveal, where our hope comes from.

Join us beginning August 21 for a brand new sermon series, Revelation.

Border Connection

Border Connection Trip

The Well is exploring local and regional missions opportunities, ways we as a church can partner with God to make a difference with our lives.

As we explore possibilities, you are invited to travel with other members of The Well to Nogales, Mexico this fall to meet persons seeking asylum in the U.S and an organization that serves humanitarian needs at the border. Choose from two identical dates, Saturday October 1 or Saturday October 22 for the one day trip.

Sign-ups are on a first come, first serve basis on Sunday August 28 at the Hospitality Table (if you are Online only attender, email us here to sign up for the date of your choice). Space is limited to only 15 persons on each day.

Some guidelines:

  • The cost is $25 per person due at sign-up on August 28 (scholarships available).
  • A required 90-minute Zoom Training Class is scheduled for September 13 at 6:00pm.
  • Minors 12 and up are permitted with a parent or guardian.
  • The host organization has asked that attenders have received the COVID-19 vaccine.
  • As we will travel across the border into Mexico, a valid passport is required.
  • After we return from the Border Connection Trip, participants are invited to participate in a series of Table Talks about the experience.

And in addition to this opportunity at the border, we are exploring local serving opportunities. Watch for updates.

Ryan Gear Welcome


Welcome to The Well.

If you're looking for a church where thinking, compassionate people can find a spiritual home and cultivate a Jesus-inspired life...

You are welcome here, and so are your questions and doubts.

You don't have to check your brain at the door, because if God created you with a brain, then it's okay to use it in church. The Bible and science are not enemies, and The Well is an open and affirming church, because we believe in interpreting the Bible wisely.

And, ultimately, following Jesus is about how you live and love. The Well is a place to express both your faith and your doubts, so you can grow to become your best self, and partner with God make a difference with your life.

An example of what we mean by that was captured in recent articles about The Well in the East Valley Tribune here and the SanTan Sun News here.

If that sounds like the kind of community you're interested in, we look forward to seeing you this Sunday!

Ryan Gear
Lead Pastor

The Well meets Sundays at 10am, and services last about 60 minutes. Well KIDS (infant- 5th grade) is offered during the service.

Meet the leaders of The Well, get more information, or just introduce yourself.

The Well meets In-Person and Online at Hancock Elementary School, 2425 S. Pleasant Dr. Chandler, AZ 85286 and Online on The Well Facebook page.


The Well is a place of hope, meaning, and purpose where we can be inspired, grow as followers of Jesus Christ, and be a part of something bigger.

More and more people feel like they no longer fit in the type of Christianity they see today. It can be:

Too unlike Jesus
Too out of touch, and
Too closed to the questions ordinary people have about faith.

That's why we started The Well.

We believe that following Jesus should be refreshing, positive, and pull us together instead of pushing us apart.

The mission of The Well is to create a community where thinking, compassionate people can find a spiritual home and cultivate a Jesus-inspired life. 

The Well is a place where:

You are free to express both your faith and your doubts.

You can spiritually grow to become your best self.

And you can partner with God to make a difference with your life.

You'll experience practical teaching from the Bible that will give you hope and wisdom for your everyday life, inspiring worship music, an excellent children's ministry, and the love of a church family who welcomes you with no hidden agenda.

No matter who you are, you are welcome at The Well. We cheer each other on because none of us is perfect, and everyone belongs.

Something different is needed now more than ever. If this sounds like the kind of community you're looking for...

Welcome home.
