The Well is led by the Hub team, headed up by Alison & Haydon Murr. We also have an operational team that includes staff and volunteers…and a stack of people behind the scenes who make it all happen. Missional Communities have their own teams, and of course we have a group of amazing Trustees who help keep us legal. Here are some faces to look out for.
Alison and Haydon Murr lead The Well together. They have been married for 27 years and have three grown up children. Both Alison and Haydon were among the earliest members of The Well where they have served on various teams for many years. Their lives were turned around when they had a powerful encounter with God in their 20’s and they are revivalists at heart. They spent three years at Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry in Redding California and share a passion for the manifest presence and power of God, and for people to come into all their fullness. Alison carries a strong prophetic gifting and Haydon loves to teach. Haydon continues to work part-time as a dentist, .
