OUR INSPIRATIONThe name Well of GRACE Ministries was inspired by the story of the Samaritan woman who met Jesus at the well and received grace. Using Jesus' example we move forward in the call to build a ministry that offers grace to hurting girls and women.

Jacob's well was a meeting place in Samaria where Jesus met a woman one day. Because she was wrapped in shame, she came alone and arrived when others would not be there. But, to her surprise, Jesus was waiting.
  He knew her story before she even told him,
  He knew about the lies,
  He knew about the masks she wore,
  He knew about the poor choices she made,
  He knew her pain, before she even identified it herself.
  He knew about her thirst.
  Jesus offered her grace.
  He offered her acceptance.
  He did not focus on her sin, but offered her healing.
  He offered to quench her thirst.
  He offered her Himself.
  It was there at Jacob's well that she met
  Jesus and was changed forever.

  "The water I give will become a spring of water welling up to eternal life." - John 4:14

OUR HISTORY-  In May of 2004 a founding board began the work of building Well of GRACE Ministries. There were several local professionals who volunteered to help the board conquer areas that were unfamiliar. With their help, we wrote by-laws and a constitution, became incorporated, and designed a logo. By the end of 2004 we were officially recognized as a non-profit organization achieving 501(c)3 status. To help share our dream and generate additional funds, we created brochures, newsletters and a database of donors, volunteers, and other interested people which continues to expand today.

Initially all of our fundraising efforts were for the purpose of helping young adult women in a residential treatment setting. After two years of structured programming, the expense of running a residential treatment facility became more than what the economic climate of the times could support; for many organizations the well truly ran dry. Though it was a difficult decision to make, the Board of Directors decided to close the residential program and pray about what to do next. For many this was the loss of a dream. 

Our spirits began to lift as brainstorming sessions with staff and volunteers revealed a new chapter for our ministry. With the same mission in place: to be a Christ-centered organization that transforms physically, emotionally, and spiritually wounded young women...we created four programs to offer outpatient therapeutic support. 

As good stewards of fundraising dollars, Well of GRACE Ministries found that we could expand our ministry throughout Berrien County and provide services to more and more adolescent girls, and women of all ages. Through supportive partnerships with local churches, schools, and organizations we are excited about the services we provide at no cost to individuals that are in need of physical, emotional, and spiritual support. To God be the glory!  

Well of GRACE Ministries offers a "meeting place" at several locations throughout southwest Michigan where women and girls can feel safe to be themselves, meet Jesus' love, receive grace and have their thirst quenched.
