The Wellspring Story
Wellspring Church began with two families praying, fasting, and seeking God’s guidance in Hurst, TX.
We had much to learn (and still do). The Lord provided helpful guidance from others who’ve gone before us. Eventually, God brought other like-minded folks who loved the lost and wanted to help them more than go to another event to have their own needs met. People came to faith. Others had their eyes opened to how self-serving their Christian life had been. People repented and started loving their neighbors and strangers. More gathered to pray and worship.
We soon offered training to whomever wanted it (many people from other churches) about how to live a missional life. We focused on Jesus: how He lived the UP, IN, & OUT life in continuous harmony, how He lovingly invited others into community and intentionally challenged his disciples.
We modeled generous hospitality and opened our homes to whomever was in need. We shared how to re-orient daily life to build relationships with people of peace. People learned from us and began living the calling out in their neighborhoods and communities of faith. We helped other church planters in DFW.
Most of all, we kept learning & growing in Jesus.
In 2011, a church that had once thrived invited Pastor Bob to preach (they were in a pastoral search at the time). A relationship began that eventually culminated in Wellspring Church being asked to help them thrive once more. Wellspring Church gave counsel and training to some of its members in missional living. The impact was significant.
In August 2011, the Lord brought the two bodies together in a re-plant process. The two congregations merged as one blended family and have been serving Jesus as a missional church ever since. Not perfectly, of course … we’re still growing as missionary servants of our missionary God. But He is leading us.
