We’re raising funds for some multimedia equipment. Will you help? We’ve designed several ways for you to help us raise money. This multimedia equipment will enable us to begin a podcast and livestream upcoming events so that they can be heard and viewed by people around the world. When you donate to Wellspring’s ministry, you become a distributor of Living Water while helping us expand our ministry. You are vitally needed to help us revive, renew and redeem our nation as we seek to bring revival to America. Choose one or more of the following seven options and become a distributor of the living water of Christ:
Option 1: You can make a tax-deductible financial gift of any amount securely at Fundly. See information below:
Become a Distributor of Living Water with us by joining our fundraising campaign as we We uploaded a list of the multi-media equipment that has been recommended to us. You can contribute towards one of these items, or donate the full amount. Your gift is tax-deductible and 2019 is running out. Please consider your year-end contributions to Wellspring.

Option 2: Purchase a Christian t-shirt or other item at either our Teespring or Spreadshop Store.
As we focus on Revival for America, 2 Chronicles 7:14 says, “If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray,and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, forgive their sins, and heal their land.” This design was created as we focus for the next few weeks on repentance that leads to revival. Revival begins with humble repentance. Repentance is going one direction that is the path of sin, then making a complete U-turn and going the opposite direction towards God.
You’ll find the design in tees for women, mugs, bags, and other products. Check them out in the Spreadshirt and Teespring shops.
All proceeds go to the advancement of Wellspring Christian Ministries.
Thank you for helping us grow!

Option 3: Make a tax-deductible financial contribution at buymeacoffee.com. For the price of a cup of coffee, you can help us give Living Water to those who are spiritually thirsty. Donations gifted through this site are set at $5 increments and start at only $5. If you wish to donate more that $5, just choose how many cups of virtual coffee you wish to contribute. In other words, a cup of coffee at your local barista can cost you about $5. So if you wanted to contribute $15 to this ministry, you would be contributing at the amount equivalent to 3 cups of coffee, so you’d select 3 cups of virtual coffee.
Note: No cups of coffee are actually purchased.
January Fundraising challenge: How many cups of coffee do you drink in a day? Would you consider donating at that amount? So if you typically drink 4 cups a day, would you consider contributing at 4 cups of virtual coffee – the equivalency of $20?

BOOKING NOW to be a host site for the NEW God, Love & Marshmallow Wars Book Tour & Couples Conference:
This event helps couples understand why the daily activities found in the book will equip them to build a stronger marriage and the book provides them with 365 intentional activities to take what they learn at the event and apply it on a daily basis. Through the event, couples will discover the Biblical “why” behind the categories of activities found in the book and the “how” these activities are important to building a stronger marriage. Focus points of the event includes :
- How memorizing scripture together and studying God’s Word together as they study, meditate and apply scriptures related to marriage and life issues will help them develop marriages that honor God.
- Why utilizing fun conversation starters that spark meaningful conversations will keep interest alive as they continually learn new things about each other.
- Why keeping romance alive is essential to intimacy and connectivity.
- How making memories and working together builds relationship investment bonds and how these investment bonds can become the knots that keeps them together through the tough times.
- How they can understand what they are or are not contributing to the marriage as well as how they might be contributing to problems or potential problems within the relationship through the use of targeted, intentional personal reflections
- Why it is important that couples never stop dating and how group dates with Christian friends can be both an encouragement and accountability to their own relationship.
During the event, couples will be given an activity from each focus point to do together, making this event an interactive, fun, and engaging event with practical, hands-on learning. Unlike other couple events that are over when the event ends, couples who attend the GLMW event will be able to apply what they learn when utilizing the book on a daily basis for a year. Since the book is not dated, couples are able to reuse the activities year after year to continue being intentional in strengthening their relationship with each other and with God as they strive to live out God’s design for marriage every day.
Julia will donate half of all proceeds for all GLMW events booked prior to December 31 to this ministry. Don’t wait. Book today.

|Gospel Treason: Betraying the Gospel with Hidden Idols
By Brad Bigney / P & R Publishing
Is it harder for you to change and grow as a Christian than it should be? Do you wonder what is holding you back? Have you ever considered that it might be idolatry?
Using real-life stories and examples, Brad Bigney’s Gospel treason: Betraying the Gospel with Hidden Idols shows us how the idols we might not even recognize can still have devastating effects in our lives. In this transparent, honest book, he helps us to identify our idols, understand how they lead us to commit treason against the gospel–and finally repent of them and root them out forever by turning to the only One who can fill our every need.
|A Nation in Crisis
By Ray Stedman / Discovery House
Every day the headlines announce more violence and evil. Our hearts groan as we wonder what life will be like for the next generation. It all seems hopeless, which is probably how Jeremiah felt as he lived among the people of the nation of Judah.
Jeremiah was a reluctant but faithful prophet who spent forty-two years serving God and warning the people to repent. His heart was saddened and angered by the people’s indifference to God and the moral decay that surrounded him. Everything was falling apart–yet Jeremiah continued to seek the Lord.
As we face personal trauma and national crisis, we can learn from the prophet’s example. Ray Stedman walks us through the book of Jeremiah, revealing that repentance was the only answer then–and it’s the only answer today. When people repent, God is faithful to His Word, planting the seeds of new life and giving us hope.

The Bible study is geared for adult groups to use prior to the movie or just after seeing the movie. The study includes clips from the movie.
The Overcomer Bible Study Kit has five sessions and includes:
