Josh Bales

Teaching Elder

The Lord has blessed Monica and I (21 years of marriage) with three sons: Josiah, Justus and Jonathan. I have been pastoring at The Well since 2010, and I can’t imagine a better church family than what God has appointed for me. I love all things Jonathan Edwards, and nearly everything I can get my hands on by the Puritans. But most of all I love Jesus Christ who has won my heart for eternity through His blood and righteousness.

Their family began attending The Well in 2011 and Jason has been serving as a pastor since 2016.  He is bi-vocational pastor, also working as a general contractor and cabinet maker. He does spend some summers commercial fishing along the Oregon Coast. Jason’s greatest passion is God and Him glorified. He has a heart for the youth at The Well and loves seeing them connect the dots as they grow in their theology. Fun fact: Jason’s greatest weakness is replying to emails.

Paul Lewer

Elder

God makes much of himself through redeeming wretches like me! God saved me from the wages of my sin nearly 2000 years ago, but it wasn’t until the summer between my freshman and sophomore years in college that my eyes were opened to this precious reality. Life as a Christian is simultaneously the most difficult and joyful thing imaginable. After serving in the U.S. Navy for about 10 years, God called me to pursue theological training at Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary (still in progress). It has been my joy to serve as an elder at The Well since June 2021. My dear wife Damaris and my two children, Daniel and Sarah, are gifts from God who I treasure. I cannot wait to be perfectly glorifying and enjoying my Lord in heavenly, eternal bliss!
