Serving at The Well.
Spokes are the name for our ministry teams. They work with the Hub Team and missional communities to deliver our vision of biulding communities, equipping people and transforming culture.
‘A spoke is one of some number of rods radiating from the center of a wheel – the hub where the axle connects – connecting the hub with the round traction surface’. (wikipedia)
