New Series and Community Groups!

At Wellspring we started a new series, in January, called Balanced. Its a series about the importance of trusting God with all you have including your money.

We also are about to begin a new semester of Community Groups. Here are some pictures of our recent video shoot for the curriculum we are creating. Just goes to show you dont have to have a studio to create a good video!

Real Estate

Things are going well in the neighborhood that I am working in. I have 4 active contracts right now. Here is the first one I sold that is already going up!

Christmas Eve Service

Wellspring had a great Christmas Eve service! We had many guests and the service was awesome!

Substitutes for Santa

In mid-December, Wellspring put on an event for needy families in the area. Close to 85 kids participated in our Substitutes for Santa event. We provided basic needs and toys for each of these awesome kids. We also partnered with local organization which provided volunteers. It was a great night and a great way to serve the community.

Movies in the Park 2 and Growth

October has been another busy month for us at Wellspring Church! In early October we successfully launched four Community Groups for the first time. These groups will help our people connect more and help us grow stronger as a church.

In late October we held our second Movies in the Park. It was another successful event. We saw hundreds come out and participate. We were able to really promote Wellspring with giveaways and many good conversations. Check out the pictures in the next post.

We started two services in September and we have really been able to see good growth as a church. We are providing more opportunities for people to hear about God and He continues to send people our way!

Heading into December we are organizing a big community event called Substitutes for Santa. Our goal will be to locate over 100 needy children and provide Christmas for them, as well as basic necessities for their families. This will be another way that our church can reach our community. Please pray for us as we plan this event.

Exciting Times at Wellspring Church

This summer has truly been amazing at Wellspring. We have done several community events, baptized many and have grown stronger and more unified as a church. Just last weekend we also launched a 2nd service! We now meet twice on Sundays 9:30 and 11:00am. Our church just celebrated its 1 year anniversary and its amazing all that God has done!

Movies in the Park

On September 10th Wellspring invited the public to come and see a free movie at a popular local shopping area and park. We were blown away by the crowds. We believe over 500 people came to the event. Check it out!

Summer Baptisms

A few weeks ago we had another awesome beach baptism! We baptized 6 more! Check out some pics from that.

Serving Myrtle Beach

Last year Wellspring was able to do two events in one of the local neighborhoods in Myrtle Beach. And through a resident of that neighborhood and and a partner of Wellspring we were invited to help out with the neighborhood Luau.

This past Saturday we served the people of that community.We provided bounce houses and put Wellspring tattoos and the kids there. We were also able to pass out information about our church. We talked to many people and hopefully some will come and check us out. Please pray for more opportunities like this one in Myrtle Beach!

Beach Baptism

Recently we got an opportunity to have our first beach baptism! It was awesome to see 5 come to be baptized!

Summer Is Here!

The South Carolina heat and humidity has arrived! Thank goodness we are close to the beach. We wanted to update you on what is going on in Myrtle Beach.

Recently, the Wellspring staff was able to get away and plan for the year. This Summer and Fall should be an exciting time at Wellspring! There are many things that we are planning to do to reach out to the community. As we get closer we will post details and ways you can pray.

One thing we would ask for you to pray for is an event we are doing called Movies at the Park. We are going to reserve a park in a popular shopping area and provide a family movie twice this Fall. Please pray for the planning and details of that event. This will provide a great opportunity for us to get our name out and invite hundreds to Wellspring.

We look forward to sharing with you many other things that we are doing at Wellspring!

On the job front, Eric was able to pass his Real Estate class! This week he will be taking his state Real Estate test. Please pray for him as he takes the test.

Thanks for your continued support!

Wellspring News and Job News

Since Easter we have seen our weekly attendance increase to above what we were averaging before Easter! We continue to see new guests each week. Our volunteer teams continue to grow. We are likely going to divide our kids area up because we continue to see growth there. We would ask you to pray for our summer. It is setting to be a crucial time in our growth as a church as we reach this area. We are planning some big events for this summer, we will post more details soon.

Shortly after moving here Eric was connected to a guy in our church who is a home builder. His company is R.S. Parker Homes For the last few weeks he has been working as an assistant to the real estate agents for this builder. During the first two weeks of May Eric will be taking classes to become an agent for this company. Please pray for him as he takes these classes.


Easter was an incredible day at Wellspring! We saw over 150 people attend Wellspring which was way above our average. We saw many first time guest to the church and we were excited to see God move as at least eight people professed faith in Christ for the first time. Below are some pictures from Easter.

Myrtle Beach = Home

Our family made the long trip from Texas and made it to Myrtle Beach in mid-March. We are settling in nicely here. The weather has been great! We hope to use this blog as a way to keep you our faithful supporters up to date on what God is doing here in Myrtle Beach. Along the way we will post pictures and news from our church.
