When Kevin Scott left his church in California to become a bi-vocational church planter in Boston, he found himself in the eclectic neighborhood of East Boston. “There was no strategy to it – it was the cheapest place we could find to live,” Scott said.
But God was at work, and He quickly brought together people and provided a meeting place. So Church at the Well put down roots in East Boston, where it has grown into a diverse congregation that is breaking down barriers.
“For most people in Boston, church is pretty irrelevant,” Scott said. But as Church at the Well has become known in the community for service projects, as well as their nonprofit coffee house in Boston’s South Station, people have become interested in this church that both speaks truth and shows love.
“That kind of balance between those two things is what is drawing people,” Scott said. “To us it’s just Gospel living.”
