After living the stereotypical college life as a star athlete at CSU Fresno, Brad Bell gave his life to Christ in 1993. Dallas Theological Seminary fed his appetite to learn more about Jesus where Bell received a M.A. in Biblical Studies. Yet, a degree wasn't the only achievement for him in Texas; Bell met and married his bride, Jen, in Texas before moving back to his hometown of Fresno, CA. He was crazy enough to quit his job to start a church in Fresno with no financial support, no staff, and no building! Not without good reason, though! Tired of seeing people exhausted from the treadmill of "try hard - do good - fail," Bell developed a deep passion for discipleship. He had to respond to the calling that the Lord was stirring in him! Today his passion is his mission - "Helping people connect to God and to each other in every neighborhood." His goal is to equip others to make true disciples, arming believers with the truths and tools that continuously foster spiritual formation. Since
Bell's gutsy decision to start The Well Community Church in 2002 the church has grown, one disciple at a time into a multi-site church focusing on spiritual formation across the central valley of California.
With his experience and passion Bell has been sought internationally as a speaker for camps and conferences.
