It’s 2019 and The Well doesn’t have a building to meet in yet. Good thing a building isn’t a requirement for the Great Commission. Jesus set that up in such a way that the only reason we fail at being part of the solution through the Great Commission is when we stop doing what He left us here to do. Dawson Trotman, the founder of The Navigators said, “I will NEVER come to a place where I am going to let the lack of ANYTHING persuade me that [God is] being hindered.” What a way to think and live! That being said, just so you know, The Well is not hindered by the lack of a building. We’re not in some kind of temporary holding pattern, waiting for a building before we get back at what we’re doing before. So, if you are waiting for The Well to be in a building before you join back in, then you just might be wasting your time because everything we did while in brick and mortar, we’re doing now. The call to be disciples hasn’t changed. The call to make disciples hasn’t changed. The call to grow in community with one another hasn’t changed. The call to reproduce and innovate and step out of comfort zones hasn’t changed. Using Bible study as a platform for outreach, spiritual growth and training hasn’t changed. We’re still doing events and trainings and conferences. We’re still praying corporately together. We still meet as a staff, seeking God and planning as we continue to move forward as a ministry. We still encourage the work of God in other places, coming alongside other ministries to strengthen and equip. So, if I were you, I’d join in the work – here at The Well, in your church and/or in your parachurch ministry because the call hasn’t changed and wisdom says that as a Christian you need to answer that call. There’s a call on this ministry, too, and we’re answering it – building or not.
