Rock Reflections

Take a peek into what we are sharing with our teams.

Each week we share a Core Value video created by a member of our leadership team for all teams to watch and discuss. What do these core values mean? How do we see each of these core values playing out in our lives as we journey together here at The Well? Everyone then has an opportunity to Recognize Others in Christ’s Kingdom [ROCK] and write a “You Rock” card for a teammate when they see that month’s core value exhibited. You may not catch the videos, but we’d love to share the video transcripts with you.

Maybe you too can journey and ROCK with us!
