The Well: Summer​ Faith Experience

Faith. Identity. Calling.

The University of Findlay is proud to offer a summer faith experience for high school students, only $50 per person for the entire week. The Well is graciously funded through a grant from the Lilly Endowment ​Inc.

​Dates: Sunday, July 16, 2023 - Saturday, July 22, 2023​​

What You Can Expect

The Well is a uniquely transformative week-long summer f​aith experience on the University of Findlay campus during which high school students are invited to dive deeper into 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 a 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.

Come prepared to wrestle with questions like:

  • Who am I?
  • What’s my story?
  • In what ways does God communicate His will to us?
  • Does God have a specific plan for us?
  • How do we know what God is calling us to do?
  • How can I use my gifts to serve my fellow man?
