Here at Well Kids, it is our desire to come alongside and assist parents in loving, teaching, and training young children to know and follow Jesus…from the very beginning. We believe that children are just as accessible to the Holy Spirit as adults are; and in keeping with the overall mission of this church, it is our desire that children would be FOUND by the grace of God, FILLED with the power of the Holy Spirit, and FREED to love like Christ.

Your child’s safety is a priority to us which is why we have a secure check-in system. Upon check-in, a volunteer will show your child the way to their classroom where they will learn an age-appropriate lesson, have a snack, and fellowship with other kids their age.

Tara Manning

Children’s Minister, North Campus

Tara sensed God’s call into ministry in her early 20’s but wasn’t sure exactly what that looked like. She has served in various community ministries, including Relentless Teen Girls Encounter. God called her and her family to The Well, which ultimately led to the door opening as the Children’s Director.

Tara believes that ministry starts in the home and loves her title as “Wife” and “Mom.” She enjoys spending her time with family and friends whether at the lake, sitting around a fire, or just playing board games.

Tara’s passion is in equipping families to serve Christ. She desires to teach both children and parents that “They’re not just kids, they’re future leaders!” Her goal is to come alongside families to raise those leaders up.

Ashley Alexander

Children’s Minister, Downtown Campus

As a teenage girl Ashley felt a calling into children’s ministry, but wasn’t sure what that looked like. Shortly after coming to The Well, she felt God telling her she needed to step out of my comfort zone, and began volunteering in the Kids department, which eventually landed her the position as the downtown Kids minister.

Ashley has two sweet boys and a wonderful husband who are so supportive of her role in this ministry. She truly believes that ministry starts at home with her family, and her own children.

Her prayer is that The Well will be able to help these children establish a relationship with Christ, then help them build that relationship and prayer life with Him. She believes childhood is such a vital time in a person’s life where they set the foundation that they will carry with them for all of the days of their lives.
