    When and how did Jesus become real to you?

    This will seem backwards, but Jesus became real to me before I was saved, which happened when I was 16. Jesus became real to me watching my grandparents when they would come and live with us for several months. Listening to them sing their Spanish hymns and their unwavering love for God, made me realize how real and personal Jesus wants to be in our lives.

      

    What do you do at Wellspring?

    Whatever God wants? I lead outreach ministries, including Community Saturday's where we are involved in serving our community. We also are working on developing a food ministry that is primarily focused on helping the working poor. I do some programming for the office. I teach kids in our children ministries. And I sing loudly and off key from the 3rd row during Sunday worship. Have you ever wondered why no one sits in front of me. You're just lucky I don't sit in the back row, the church would be empty.

     

    What is your most memorable moment at Wellspring?

    Dedicating my kids to the Lord and being in the water as my daughter, Emma, was baptized. Pastor Scott asked if I wanted to baptize her, and I said, "Are you kidding me? I am going to be crying enough as it is. There is no way I would be able to speak." We won't even talk about what it will be like when she gets married. 


    What’s the best thing about serving at Wellspring?

    Meeting others and getting to know them. I am an information junkie, so I love to hear stories about people and how they grew up. Hearing about people's lives is the best way I get to see how the Lord moves in others.


    What do you do to have fun?

    Going to Disneyland, or any vacation, with the family.

    Crazy or stupid? With me they are often the same. The craziest thing I want to do is go diving on the Great Barrier Reef looking for Great White Sharks (I have to wait until the kids are grown up).

    Monday, because it is the beginning of the week and there are so many possibilities ahead.

    M - When I prayed at school in the 2nd grade and said "I love you Jesus" and all the kids laughed at me and yelled "Michele and Jesus sittin in a tree.." (ohhh kids...) and I burst into tears. I realized that I wouldn't cry if he wasn't real and that Jesus mattered to me. And don't worry...Jesus healed that scar and I still pray in public. HA.

    Next, my first Sunday at WellSpring in Jr. High, Paula Bae spoke about a mountain climber who got trapped in an avalanche. He prayed very specifically for individual body parts until help arrived, and when they got him out, whatever he prayed for was untouched by frostbite. I was like...woah...that is so cool. 

    R - One of the most memorable moments was when I was leading worship on a Sunday morning. I told the congregation to sing loud with me. Over everyone else I heard a young boy singing at the top of his lungs. I was so touched by that moment because he was truly singing his heart out to God! 


    What’s the best thing about serving at WellSpring?

    M - Seeing all my favorite people each week! And getting to witness lives being changed. 

    R - Serving at Wellspring makes me feel like I'm a part of the team. I love connecting with other leaders and partners on a scale that is so much more grand than just showing up.

  • Scott Tuttle

    lead pastor - email

    When and how did Jesus become real to you? 

    I opened my heart to Jesus at a Christian concert in 7th grade.  At the end of the concert they gave an invitation to follow Jesus and even though I grew up in church I knew something was missing in my life.  That night I realized I needed the Lord forgiveness and love personally in my life.


    What do you do at Wellspring?

    I am the lead pastor.  So I do a number of things, but in truth I have a fantastic team of people that I couldn't do what I do without them.


    What is your most memorable moment at Wellspring?

    There really are too many to recount.  Beside my family, WellSpring is the biggest part of my life.  So over the past 25 years I have so many unbelievable moments... and some hard ones.  But the Lord has used them all to shape me more into His image. 


    What’s the best thing about serving at Wellspring?

    The best part is serving along those I love and care about.  WellSpring is my family and so to be part of and serve in a place filled with some of my best friends is amazing and an incredible blessing.


    Who are the biggest influences in your life?

    Many from years ago during my formative years.  But more recently there are a few that stand out... Pastor Russ Davis, Pastor Wayne Cordeiro and a few close friends.


    What do you do to have fun?

    Hang out with my wife and kids. I enjoy having friends over to the house to enjoy the backyard.  I alway am happy to be at the beach or anywhere by the ocean.  Good food! I love to listen to music preferably live, but that doesn't happen as often as I like. And whenever I get a chance to go on a drive... i'm in a good place.


    What do you do in your spare time?

    Spare time?  Actually I do the things in the previous question.


    Favorite book, movie or music?

    Hind Feet on High Places, Emotionally Healthy Spirituality, Prodigal God, The Leader's Journey and of course the Bible.


    What is your favorite food?

    No question sushi and any kind of mexican food.  But a good swordfish or salmon are pretty good too.


    How do you like your coffee?

    Anyway I can get it.  Truth be known I'm a bit of a coffee snob.  I like a 16 double couple american with non-fat foam and a splash, yes splash of non-fat milk.  Preferably from CoolBeans!


    What is your favorite “small indulgence”?

    Small, I don't know; but vacations! I'm a big believer in vacations.


    What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done?

    I can't tell you that, I'm the lead pastor. :)


    What is your most favorite day of the week & why?
