Staff & Ministry Teams

Our Staff Members

Dave Bauder

Lead Pastor
Dave Bauder is the founder and lead pastor for The Well. He and his wife Debbie began The Well more than 15 years ago with a desire to minister to those people who might not be comfortable in a traditional church environment. While he was raised in a Christian home, Dave was also a rock and roll musician and has played with many performers, and fell into a life of alcohol and drug abuse. After years of struggling, the Lord drew Dave back. He was miraculously healed from his addiction and was eventually led into full-time ministry. Dave originally served as church music director in Franklin, Tullahoma, and Murfreesboro, TN before launching The Well in 2006. Dave presently serves as the Lead Pastor. On Sunday mornings, you’ll find Dave leading worship and ministering God’s Word.

Praise & Worship Team

Every Sunday, our church is lead in praise and worship music from a group of talented, dedicated musicians. Our music is contemporary in style and God-centered in focus. Our team does not believe in personal performance but in lifting up praise and worship to God as an offering.

Greeter Team

Every Sunday, a warm and loving group of people come together to make sure you feel welcomed as soon as you walk through the doors. This team includes our front door greeters, guests hosts, and coffee baristas.

Children's Ministry Team

We are blessed at The Well with a large number of school-aged children. Every Sunday our Children’s ministry team leads our children in praise and worship, Bible teaching, and activities. The children meet as a large group for Children’s Worship then are dismissed to age-appropriate classrooms. At The Well, our children know “They’re loved, they’re safe, and their Bible”.

Safety Team

At The Well, it is important you to know you and your family are safe and secure. Each week at The Well, we have an inconspicuous group that monitors the lobby, worship center and children’s center. Entrances are secure and exits are clearly marked. This team also coordinates with the children’s ministry for emergency situations. The team is connected to one another via mobile coms.
