Lead Pastor – Tone has a radical testimony of a life saved and redeemed by Jesus. Tone has 6 kids and great wife and ministry partner named Missy. Together they have been in ministry for the last 20 years. About 6 years ago Tone felt the call to start a Church that was focused on living out God’s Mission and living for God’s Kingdom. So in September of 2012 a small group of people met in Tone’s backyard for a BBQ and began to talk about Jesus and what it would look like to be a Community of people that started to Worship Jesus together, eat meals and take communion together, Live on Gods Mission together and Love people in tangible way together with their resources…especially the least of these. That's kinda how the W.E.L.L. began. Tone loves fishing and the Chicago Cubs. He loves strong coffee and to sit down with people and hear their story as well as share what God is doing.
Administrative Assistant - Christie is a former teacher that taught 2nd grade for six years. She loves to serve in the nursery and with the youth group at church. She an extrovert and she loves being surrounded by people. She also loves organizing things, make up, and trying new foods. She fell in love with Jesus when she was 22 years old. Christie found The Well Church when her husband and her were looking for a community that would love and accept them and help them know Jesus better. God provided all of that and beyond at The Well. She says she loves the Well church because they go out into the community to serve and love people, especially the “least of these.” Pastor Tone and his wife Missy inspire her to live on mission for Jesus everyday.
Preaching / Dope Church - Brian moved to Jacksonville in 2014 from Ohio. Drug and alcohol addiction led him in and out of prisons and jails for 15 years and left him feeling broken, hopeless and full of anger and hatred. Through a bold and profound experience with Jesus in the county jail Brian’s life has been transformed. Brian and his wife Taj met at The Well and were married by Pastor Tone in 2015. They live in Lakeshore with their son Landen, they enjoy music, Jaguars football games, and spending time with friends. Through the extravagant grace provided through Jesus sacrifice, Brian is able to share about a loving and forgiving God that meets us in our mess but doesn’t leave us there, with co-workers, with people in the community struggling with addiction, and occasionally on Sunday mornings at The Well Jax!
Director of Childrens Ministry - Cheyenne is a woman who understands what it means to be beautifully broken. Her testimony speaks to God’s ability to take things meant for harm and making them work for His good. From a young age she knew she was called to work with children and has pursued that calling her whole life. She has been serving in varying Children’s Ministries for 15 years and has only grown more passionate about this endeavor as the years go on. 3 years ago, God brought Cheyenne, her husband and their 2 children to The Well Jax and they instantly knew they were meant to be there. She loves a good book, all things art related and Disney.... Oh and she is great with kids!
