Mission Statement


To promote and nurture persons in the process of recognizing and using their God-given gifts, talents, and abilities to empower themselves and others


Ministry Description


The Church Hill Christian Wellness Center (“The Well”) is a holistic ministry that exists to help adults and children in the East End area of Richmond develop spiritually, emotionally, physically, mentally, and socially.  As disciples of Jesus Christ, we answer the call to help persons reach and fulfill their God-given potential as they take their rightful place in the community.  This will be done through the development and implementation of ministries that create a sense of community, increase self-esteem, and that restore, heal, and reconcile persons to God and to each other.
