5:15 – Welcome

About The Well

In 2005, Hal Hamilton and Tim Price began an event with a vision to equip youth workers where they were – in a short block of time, no strings attached. Over the years, thousands of youth workers have attended this conference, in small groups in various cities all over Illinois. It’s been hosted in more churches from several denominations and even more denominations have been represented in attendance With a vision to come to you and provide “close to home” training for staff and volunteers, The Well, has met this need and has provided a connection and network.

The registration fee covers the program, speaker and other expenses and the whole group enjoys a meal together (included) – which provides time to visit and connect.

Following The Well – there’s nothing you have to sign up for or anything else you need to pay for – we just want to invite you to head home refreshed, encouraged and with some new ideas for reaching and discipling the next generation.

It’s best if you can bring a group of volunteers with you!  This is a homegrown Illinois area event – so if you’re a pastor reading this, register your student ministry leader!

We’re praying for you and hope that you can join us at The Well for Youth Workers in March!
