In February of 1999, two of our members were attending an Anniversary Revival at a church in Flat River, Missouri (now
Park Hills, MO). During their worship experience there they were prophesied to by Sister Evelyn Shave (Sha-vey) and told to
"dig a new well." They had been away from church and formal worship for three years until this time and had been searching
for the way in which God would have them serve Him.
Because of this prophecy, they contacted several other people they knew who had also felt the 'call' upon their lives
to do something in ministry for the Lord. With the help of the Rev. Vivian Gordon, Dianna Thomas, Gail Lowry, Linda Williams,
and Deb Scarlet began holding Bible Studies. With others soon joining them and Ordinations bestowed by Sister Vivian,
a well-traveled, licensed and ordained Minister/Evangelist through the Apostolic Church of God, Pastor Dianna and Pastor Gail
began Sunday Worship Services held in the basement of the home of Pastor Dianna and Deb.
Well of Living Water Ministries has now been in existence well over one year and has grown both physically and spiritually. These
few had long felt that God wanted them to begin a church for all who are lost and hungry in Belleville, Illinois and
the surrounding metro area. That has now become a reality through God's mighty power and the labors of several church friends
and members who completely rebuilt the interior of a storefront in Downtown Belleville.
During this short period of time, the Rev. Gail Lowry has gone on to be with her Lord and Savior and she is sadly missed,
though we know that she now has a first hand knowledge of the hope we all have of our future in Christ.
There have been many trials along the way but with each challenge we encountered, we became stronger in our faith.
We invite you to become a part of the church today and a piece of its history tomorrow.
