About Us: Our Story

In 1994, Patti Pierce established WellSpring (formerly Women at the Well) out of her experience seeing God use silence and solitude to bring spiritual transformation in her life. Her own struggle to find a relevant, practical process for building and sustaining an authentic relationship with Jesus led her to offer guidance to others.

Today, WellSpring offers resources for enlivening and sustaining a life-giving and transformative relationship with Jesus.

We are an experience-oriented ministry that helps you enrich your life with God through biblically-rooted spiritual practices including directed prayer retreats, formational small groups and spiritual direction. We aim for deep transformation that impacts your prayer life, your relationships and the way you live.

In 2007 WellSpring launched a ministry called SoulCARE to provide pastors and nonprofit leaders with a place for physical, emotional and spiritual rest and renewal, as well as a practical process for nurturing and sustaining authentic intimacy with God. We impact leaders’ longevity and fruitfulness in ministry. Offered at no cost to the participants as a metaphor for God’s love, our intent is to lovingly rejuvenate leaders and in doing so, transform the ways they lead their staff, churches and organizations.
