Welcome to the new Associate Minister!

The Well leadership is excited to announce the hiring and appointment of Jason Steffenhagen as Associate Minister! 

Kelly Westphal – SPRC and Operations Team Member
Dennis Lund – Chair of the Operations Team
Kevin Hubbard – Chair of the Servant Steering Team
Pastor Sherry Mortenson, Lead Pastor


In 2020, Jason has been a guest preacher at The Well and now The Well welcomes him to join our call and worship in the world!

Jason is ready to jump right in with his start date of February 1, 2021.

“It is with great excitement and anticipation that I’m joining the team at The Well. My wife, Michelle, and my two boys – Mateios (11) and Michneyder (5) – are my heart and soul. We love tickling, playing games, taking the dog for walks, and watching The Mandalorian. I’ve spent the past 16 years working in Christian higher education as an Associate Campus Pastor (Bethel University, St. Paul, MN) and Assistant Director of Discipleship Ministries (Lee University, Cleveland, TN). In these roles, I’ve led and walked alongside countless college students as they pursue God and their calling to impact the world for God’s glory and their neighbor’s good. Along the way I’ve earned my Master’s of Theology and my Doctorate of Ministry in Church Leadership, both of which have impacted how I engage doing ministry. My hope for The Well is that we continue to build on a solid foundation and rich heritage, while exploring and partnering with what God is up to in the world. From the simplest of conversations to the most dynamic experiences of worship, my hope is that people at The Well are known and loved, participating in a community that reflects the heart of God. Thanks, Jason Steffenhagen”
