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). In this way, Jesus invites us to gather around His well and drink from God’s gift to us, who is Jesus—the eternal source of life.

The Well: Women’s Resources exists to equip and encourage women in faith near and far through three primary avenues:

Discipleship resources.
Leadership resources.
Community connections.

Watch this 9-minute video to learn about The Well’s encouragement to mentor new disciples of Christ:

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!

The Women’s Resource Council encourages and provides ways for women to communicate with women across the denomination. We utilize social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, email, blogs, and all forms of print communications. Of course, person-to-person contact is always encouraged!
