WELCOME TO THE WELL
In biblical days, women drew water from the well to sustain their families. The well also was a gathering place where women met old and new friends—much like women do in coffee shops today. Jesus told a Samaritan woman at the well that the water He gives “will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life” (John 4:14).

The Well: Women’s Resources is overseen by the Women’s Resource Council, which consists of one representative from each presbytery.
We are continually reviewing materials, so check back often for recommendations on a variety of discipleship and leadership resources (each fully vetted by the Women’s Resource Council) and more. Resources are categorized as Endorsed and Recommended as defined in the EPC Endorsement Policy.
The Well’s virtual communities invite women from across the EPC to share thoughts, questions, and ministry success stories. We want to hear from you!
