The Well: Summer​ Faith Experience

Faith. Identity. Calling.

The University of Findlay is proud to offer a free summer faith experience for high school students. The Well is graciously funded through a grant from the Lilly Endowment ​Inc.

​Dates: Sunday, July 19, 2020 - Saturday, July 25, 2020

For 2020—to ensure proper hygiene and social distancing, we will be housing students at a local hotel and bussing them to and from campus each morning and evening.

W​hat You Can Expect

The Well is a uniquely transformative week-long faith experience on the University of Findlay campus during which high school students are invited to dive deeper in the faith, strengthening their Christ-centered identity while discerning God’s call on their life more clearly. Students at the Well spend time together during the week engaging with immersive worship experiences, examining the Scriptures, exploring church history and the arts, encountering a diverse array of church traditions, sharing in local service opportunities, and living in vital community with other students from all around the country.

University of Findlay faculty, staff, and student ministry leaders come together to teach, lead, and guide participants of The Well. While this makes for an invaluable opportunity for spiritual formation and vocational discernment, The Well is also a great chance for high school students to experience campus life for a week: eating in the dining hall and spending meaningful time on campus. For 2020—to help ensure proper hygiene and social distancing—we will be housing students at a local hotel and bussing them to and from campus each morning and evening.

Sign up today! Come prepared to wrestle with questions like:

  • Who am I?
