Testimonials

I have made a lot of new friends; everyone is open, friendly and made me feel comfortable and welcome since day one. I love all the youth leaders; they are all nice, open, caring towards everyone, easy to talk to and are always willing to listen. It’s easy to see that they love God and sharing his love and the word of God with us. They make it easy to love learning about God

I feel that my life wouldn’t be on the path that it is without this center. Now I have only been there for a couple months but it still changed my life big time and I feel that it has made me closer to God and makes me feel that He is giving me that second chance that I thought would never happen.

When I first came to the Why at the Well I didn’t really know what to think of it and didn’t really take it seriously. I thought it was just some hangout place for kids. As I started coming more I developed more serious thoughts. I came to movie nights, then youth group, then to hangout and eventually I started coming 3 times a week. Ive been able to grow stronger toward Pastor Bill (youth pastor) and his wife Dana!!… Read more “When I first came to”

This place has been serving the men and women, boy and girls of the west shore for years. With activities, laundry facilities, weight room, basketball gym, games, and bookstore (most of which is offered free of charge) this place is a gem! They help to keep kids off the street and out of trouble. They care about the families and people around them[…] everything they have they share and that is hard to come by these days.

Why at the Well is my go-to place. I don’t live in the best of conditions, and when I need to get out, I come here. I love all the people here; they have helped me so much through the years. If it wasn’t for this place, I wouldn’t be where I am today.

Youth Group (Solace) has impacted my life in many ways. I have gained many friendships with other teens and youth leaders, as well as the pastor and his wife. I’ve even been given the opportunity to help out with different events at Why at the Well Youth Center!
