At least two things make The Well different: we do follow up within our studies and groups, and we date each other. Yeah buddy, date – but more on that in a minute. By follow up, we mean we help women learn how to shepherd their groups. Shepherding is not the same as facilitating, whereby the facilitator often leaves the follow up to someone else and the work of ministry to others higher up on the food chain. No, no.
Since The Well decentralized, many of us, like the Israelites leaving Egypt, have longed for the way things “used to be.” We miss the convenience of being on the same campus seeing all the women on “our Well day.” We miss seeing fresh faces walking through the doors each week and hearing the devotions that blew our minds.
